Tony Scott tells HitFix that he’s already begun researching material for a “Top Gun” sequel which producer Jerry Bruckheimer and Paramount Pictures are said to be looking into.
Scott says “I don’t want to do a remake. I don’t want to do a reinvention. I want to do a new movie” when asked about what kind of sequel this would be. A lot of it would be about the way fighter pilots have become more obsolete in the post-Cold War environment thanks to remote-controlled unmanned drones.
“It’s a whole different world now. 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” says Scott.
