@Jerry Bruckheimer Just got back from a weekend in New Orleans to see my old friend @TomCruise and discuss a little Top Gun 2

Cruise's work rate is mind blowing, its all about the script and director but Cruise has been consistant recently,

the last MI was very good IMHO

Just so long as Kelly McGillis doesn't reprise her role *shudders*.

Super Hornets this time? Surely they could stretch to a Raptor!?

Indeed. Raptors are well-known for their US Navy service careers. :whistle:

I exist to annoy.

And, thank you, but don't blow sunshine up my backside, let's be honest, if it wasn't me, someone else would've said something. :grin:

I suppose you could stretch it to F-35Cs instead, but I'm pretty sure the actual Topgun course doesn't use those yet. But I doubt a Hollywood film would let that stop them from featuring the Dave.

She's 60yo now so whilst her legs might be 'good condition for age' as they used to say in the Autotrader ads I doubt they are great.

Maybe they could have her character wear trousers?

Anyway I suggest we leave it at that before we all get put on the naughty step for misogyny.

Does anyone know where they're filming? Leemore / Fallon?

(The film will) reportedly involve unmanned aerial vehicles and will depict "an end of an era of dogfighting and fighter pilots," as the world's powers make the switch to remotely flown, computer aided drones.


Sounds like it could to be a boring CGI-fest.

Hope it's better than the first one was....that was almost as gash as the likes of the 'Iron Eagle' ones.

Sacrilege!

Iron Eagle is possibly the greatest movie ever made (featuring Israeli fighter jets).

Not sure about that, The Mummy was a huge pile of steaming excrement to be fair :grin:

The first Iron Eagle was ok, if only for the soundtrack. This one being my fave :-

She remastered the song as fans had been after a decent recording for a while. A pity she chose an F-15 for the cover though. I wrote her a letter personally and she sent me back a CD and a signed photo and hand written letter. Well cool :-)

Thanks Tommy. I did have a look online for info but couldn't find anything. North Island is an interesting choice if they do film there. Close to the original NAS Miramar and with a nice beach for those movie visuals but not a centre of activity. Quite looking forward to this film. I hope they keep the same tone as the original.

Perhaps that's why, so filming doesn't get in the way of operations as much as it would somewhere else.

All movies have a tone of one description or another. In the case of Top Gun it was a stylised rock and roll aerial gladiator. From the saturated look of the film to the high tempo soundtrack and charisma of Tom Cruise, it portrayed a fantasy in much the same way that the Bond movies do. It certainly influenced my arc in life and I hear many US Navy recruits owe their career to the film too. The reality of being a US Navy fighter pilot is not what is portrayed in the film.
