Hey guys, Jana here,



It’s been hoped for, talked about, and wished upon many stars for this to come true. It looks like we are getting a sequel to one of the most amazing films the 1980’s brought us – ‘Top Gun‘. Working up a script for the high-flier is Justin Marks, who is currently in negotiations to work on ‘Top Gun 2‘. Paramount, Skydance and Jerry Bruckheimer are backing this highly anticipated sequel. Bruckheimer was with Disney but has moved to Paramount in April and is jumping in with both feet. I’m seriously confused as to what made it take so long for them to get to sequel stage in the first place. An entire population of women, and some men, would have tossed out money hand over fist to get another glimpse at Cruise’s oiled up abs playing volleyball on the beach.



Peter Craig wrote the first draft a few years ago, but the project lost its steam when Tony Scott, the director of the 1986 original and was planning to direct the sequel, tragically committed suicide in 2012. Skydance is offering a pair of producers, David Ellison in a prime position and Dana Goldberg in an exec producing spot.

Now for the question on everyone’s mind – YES!!! Tom Cruise IS slated to return as the one and only ace pilot Maverick. This film is going to give us good, old fashioned pilots with skills versus CGI everything. With every movie dripping from the latest high-tech equipment, this will be a stark difference in how you can take a good script, exceptional actors an flying talent and come out with a winner worthy of a Congressional Medal of Honor.┬áNo word, yet if we can expect a return from Val Kilmer as Iceman, though.

We know Cruise has kept himself in shape, just watching him in ‘Rock of Ages‘ and you can see a tone body, but don’t be too disappointed if he doesn’t have his legendary abs back, I’m sure he’ll still have the aviators, the bomber jacket and a smile that could light up a state were he wired for it. I’m super stoked about this one and can’t wait for more info. However, as jacked as I am about this movie, we must take a moment of silence for the fallen Goose.

Movie Quotes

As you know, l'm quite keen on comic books. Especially the ones about superheroes. I find the whole mythology surrounding superheroes fascinating. Take my favorite superhero, Superman. Not a great comic book. Not particularly well-drawn. But the mythology... The mythology is not only great, it's unique. Now, a staple of the superhero mythology is, there's the superhero and there's the alter ego. Batman is actually Bruce Wayne, Spider-Man is actually Peter Parker. When that character wakes up in the morning, he's Peter Parker. He has to put on a costume to become Spider-Man. And it is in that characteristic Superman stands alone. Superman didn't become Superman. Superman was born Superman. When Superman wakes up in the morning, he's Superman. His alter ego is Clark Kent. His outfit with the big red "S", that's the blanket he was wrapped in as a baby when the Kents found him. Those are his clothes. What Kent wears - the glasses, the business suit - that's the costume. That's the costume Superman wears to blend in with us. Clark Kent is how Superman views us. And what are the characteristics of Clark Kent. He's weak... he's unsure of himself... he's a coward. Clark Kent is Superman's critique on the whole human race. Sorta like Beatrix Kiddo and Mrs. Tommy Plimpton.
The Bride:
Aso. The point Emerges.
You would've worn the costume of Arlene Plimpton. But you were born Beatrix Kiddo. And every morning when you woke up, you'd still be Beatrix Kiddo. Oh, you can take the needle out.
The Bride:
Are you calling me a superhero?
I'm calling you a killer. A natural born killer. You always have been, and you always will be. Moving to El Paso, working in a used record store, goin' to the movies with Tommy, clipping coupons. That's you, trying to disguise yourself as a worker bee That's you tryin' to blend in with the hive. But you're not a worker bee. You're a renegade killer bee. And no matter how much beer you drank or barbecue you ate or how fat your ass got, nothing in the world would ever change that.
