‘Top Gun 2’ will feature Tom Cruise versus drones, says Jerry Bruckheimer
“The long-rumored Top Gun 2 is almost certainly happening, at least according to producer Jerry Bruckheimer. In an interview with The Huffington Post last week, Bruckheimer expressed how determined he is to make a follow-up to the 1986 classic, and hinted at what themes the movie will explore. In the sequel, Tom Cruise will reprise his role as Pete “Maverick” Mitchell, and face off against drones to prove just how essential volleyball-loving airmen are.” -The Verge
I am usually the first person to cheer a hollywood sequel on, but not in this case, and it isn’t for the reason you may think.
Drones? Drones? DRONES? Tom Cru…Maverick does not fight drones! Maverick does dogfights…dog fights with real, living, people (Not the Mike Vick variety). I could never root against a computer. What fun is that? None, it is actually zero fun. Nay, negative fun. I want someone to hate, and a computer operated drone doesn’t fill that need.
That being said, I will be first in line to see ‘Top Gun 2’.
