"X-Men: First Class" Writers Hired for "Top Gun" Sequel

Posted: October 15th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"X-Men: First Class" Writers Hired for "Top Gun" SequelSubmit Comment
Variety has learned that "X-Men: First Class" writers Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz are in negotiations with Paramount Pictures to pen the sequel to "Top Gun."

Tony Scott, who directed the original film, will produce the sequel and is considering directing it as well. "It's a whole different world now," he said a year ago. "These computer geeks -- these kids play war games in a trailer in Fallon, Nevada and if we ever went to war or were in the Middle East or the Far East or wherever it is, these guys can actually fly drones. They are unmanned aircraft. They operate them and then they party all night."

His idea at the time was to swap fighter pilots for computer geeks. "They operate these drones like it's war games, but it's for real," said Scott. "This world fascinated me, because it's so different from what it was originally."

Top Gun sequel?

What, Tom Cruise in a wheel chair chasing his students around with a potato gun?

Tom's 'TopGun' don't work no more.

"Top Gun" and "sequel" should never belong in the same sentence.

I don't know much about Top Gun but the writers are great, X-Men: First Class is one of the best comic book movies of the year.

Let's hope this sequel works out well.

This sounds like a better idea for a spin-off or separate movie, not a Top Gun sequel.

I dunno about this, I would almost rather prefer the Maverick is an instructor dealing with a rookie hot shot female pilot. I said almost prefer.

What techno said.

@BC - oh, it'll probably go EXACTLY the way you're written it.

@Dave - yeah. Nix those 3 scenes and just re-release the movie on $2. Tuesdays.
