Let’s Hope The Top Gun Sequel Idea Crashes And Burns

Someone’s ego’s writing checks his fan base can’t cash if (big if) Tom Cruise really thinks anyone wants a Top Gun sequel. From The Sun via Golden Fiddle:

An insider said: “The idea is Maverick is at the Top Gun school as an instructor — and this time it is he who has to deal with a cocky new female pilot.”

Put this idea to bed or lose me forever. Top Gun is a perfect movie on its own and cannot be improved upon. But I would like to predict that the cocky new female pilot is the grown-up daughter of Goose and Carol, and that at some point Maverick will say “I flew with your old man. He was the best.” And she will be played by Katie Holmes. Ugh. That is so what that script is, and it sucks.
