There’s been some talk about Top Gun 2 with Tom Cruise and producer Jerry Bruckheimer attached to the project, but now it seems that the long-awaited sequel is starting to ramp up a bit. Earlier today a very excited Val Kilmer posted an announcement on his Facebook page that will have Top Gun fans ready to get back to theaters. It seems that Kilmer received an offer for Top Gun 2. That’s right, the Iceman cometh!
Kilmer posted this to his Facebook page:
That’s good news, I’m glad they are including his character and that we’ll see how the last 20 years have treated the Iceman and Maverick. Did their blossoming friendship last or did another combat incident cause a rift? Did Iceman become his wing-man?
There’s no script or even a synopsis available yet, but I imagine this might have something to do with drones and fading out fighter pilots. That’s just a guess, but there’s less and less dog fights these days and most pilots are attacking ground targets on missions around the world. Perhaps the movie will reflect that.
Here’s another thought I’d like to throw out there. Goose had a son and I imagine that he might show up in Top Gun 2 either as a new hot-shot pilot or perhaps one of those hot-shot drone pilots. Perhaps we’ll find out that Carole Bradshaw (Meg Ryan) was pregnant with a girl when Goose died and she’ll be the hot new pilot/drone operator. It could happen!
I only have one “Must Have” Top Gun 2 scene and it involves old men playing beach volleyball.
What do you want to see in Top Gun 2?
