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.
