Tom Cruise to make Top Gun sequel?

Tom Cruise has some new film coming out where he plays a Nazi, or likes Nazi’s, or just acts like a Nazi. Something about Nazi’s with a crap title that isn’t going to do anything for his career. He’s not worth $20mil for new films, because he really isn’t able to carry a film anymore, so he’s going to turn to what he know will make cash – a sequel to Top Gun

Tom Cruise is preparing for take-off – after he was reportedly approached to star in a sequel to 1986 hit movie Top Gun.

The actor has been asked to reprise his role as cocky fighter-pilot Maverick, 22 years after the first film.

A source tells British newspaper The Sun, “The idea is Maverick is at the Top Gun school as an instructor – and this time it is he who has to deal with a cocky new female pilot.”

Maverick would be around 45 years old now, so I’d really like to see a more dramatic sad tale of mid-life crisis. I’d like to see young Maverick drop Charlie and hook up with some new recruit 16 years his junior who starts dressing like him.

Then Maverick, whose reflexes aren’t what they were in 1986, tries to pull some kind of stunt in a flash looking plane, and winds up crashing to his premature death.

The new wife then snaps out of the strange waking coma she’s been living in and marries some young hot guy…while giggling all the way to the bank.

I can totally see Hollywood stealing this idea. Death = Oscar. Go for it, Tommy!

Note by Celebitchy: I think this article is pure bunk by The Sun and that there’s little chance of a Top Gun sequel. Maybe now that they’ve put the idea out there someone will pitch it – with a more bankable lead than Cruise.

    WHO GIVES A SH**???? He is the wierdest celeb out there, I mean really.. WHAT A QWACK..he need to take his short, ugly, scientologist, wierd, uneducated self back to his little farm land and never say another word.. ICK!!

  2. Larissa says:

    it´s just a desperate move to save his career, obviously! bring it on Tom, am not gonna watch it…lol

  3. Bodhi says:

    I call shenanigans on this story too. I think is this were true it would be WAY bigger news

  4. Dingles says:

    He can make all the sequels he wants to, it’s not like anyone’s going to go see them.

  5. Kaiser says:

    I believe it would be called “Top Gun 2: The John McCain Story”

    It would be about a former “Maverick” pilot ran for prez and got his senile ass handed to him. :)

    Top Gun 2: Xenu Chronicles. It can be about Maverick dedicating his life to Scientology and it will take you along the downward spiral that leads to his bankruptcy and homelessness. After being found in a cardboard box behind the local liquor store by one of his old flying mates, he attempts to make a comeback. but by now he is too old and can’t manage the way he used to. Then we all feel sorry for him for being so insecure that he leached onto the first thing that made him feel better about himself and ultimately destroying his life. Life imitating art, people eat that shit up.

    @ Kaiser: ha! Funny!
    (Is this the same Kaiser formerly known as Kaiser/Hipocrate (sp?)?

    “I feel the NEED…the NEED for SPEED!

    Oh, and I also feel the need for three inch lifts in my flight boots and round the clock surveillence of my young wife’s every move. Thanks.”

    A fat Top Gun —-that’s different

    He’s over. He needs to focus on financial investing or holistic cures, something. Needs to refocus so when he realizes he’s no longer a hot commodity, he doesn’t go off of the deep end. Bow out gracefully, Tom.

  11. KateNonymous says:

    I can’t imagine that Maverick would still be with Charlie. I remember coming out of the theater, and Dad Nonymous said, “There’s no way he’s in love with her when he’s that much in love with himself.”

    Plus, didn’t Maverick become a Top Gun instructor at the end of Top Gun? Has he done nothing else in the years since?

    All that aside, it sounds preposterous, which is why I can see Tom Cruise thinking it’s a great idea.

  12. Ron says:

    I think they should call it
    Top Gun 2: Electric Boogaloo

  13. vdantev says:

    ‘Cause there’s lots of 40+ year old midget fighter pilots. That career has a shorter forced retirement program than major league baseball. :roll:

    The first movie was little more than a 90 minute recruitment poster for the Navy.

    Lemme guess, he’s going to be the instructor this time to new pilots ? it’s the only role that makes sense. I can’t see TinyTom being a second fiddle in as movie plot- his ego won’t stand for it. He’ll have to either get a hero’s death moment or suddenly un-retire himself and save the day.

    Besides doesn’t his Scientology super powers allow him to flu without a plane?

    I like Helen’s version…

  15. Kaiser says:

    Yeah, Zoe, same me. I decided to go back to classic Kaiser. No Hippocrat. It’s a long story. :)

    How about –
    Top Gun 2: Maverick Gets Social Security

  16. Zoe says:

    @ Kaiser: I thought so, you seem too sane and funny to be the other “Kaiser.” (You know, the scary one) :evil:

  17. lb says:

    Even a sequel to Top Gun wouldn’t make me want to see that nutjob. Tommy, it is time to devote all your time to the COS. They are the only ones that care about you anymore. Take the robowife with you.

    Maybe Kelly Preston will make a cameo sex scene with old Mav from the old ladies home.

    Keep us posted-I wouldn’t miss this one!!!

    Uggggh…when this flops, it will be the end. He will be deader than Goose.

  22. hmmm says:

    Way to go Tommy boy, go back to doing something. I’m glad he’s got his ass working again. He should make the most of it while he still has it. Must say, if I were an actor, I’d love to have done almost every movie he’s done. Cruise rocks

  23. Nouvel says:

    Kaiser, so funny your first post. MCCAIN is so wierd man. He gives me the creeps. Just like Tom Cruise is creepy and wierd and GROSS.

    GO OBAMA 08 !!!
