Top Gun is cited by some as the defining performance of Tom Cruise’s career, and is recognized by countless others as an extremely entertaining film. So it’s not surprise that upon the announcement that Top Gun 2 is in the works, searches for a Top Gun 2 trailer have skyrocketed. Although no Top Gun 2 trailer has appeared, there’s a reason for that – Top Gun 2 hasn’t even been written yet.
Director Tony Scott confirmed that there was a plan for it, and noted that it would not just be a rehashing of the original Top Gun.
“I don’t want to do a remake. I don’t want to do a reinvention,” Scott said. “I want to do a new movie.”
For now, Scott is researching what he wants to do for the film, and noted that he would spend some time in Nevada to learn more about unmanned drones for possible inclusion in Top Gun 2. From what Scott said, that could be quite the entertaining plot.
“These computer geeks–these kids play war games in a trailer in Fallon, Nevada and if we ever went to war or were in the Middle East or the Far East or wherever it is, these guys can actually fly drones,” explained Scott. “They are unmanned aircraft. They operate them and then they party all night.”
War games and partying? Sounds like the armed forces just got a lot more attractive. Keep an eye out for a Top Gun 2 trailer and we’ll do the same.
