Tony Scott - Top Gun Sequel: Is It Ever Going To Happen?

The Top Gun sequel was purportedly thrown around the table at Paramount before the tragic death of the film's creator, Tony Scott, who surprised and shocked Hollywood by committing suicide.

"I said to Tony I want to make another movie with him. He and I haven't made a film since 'Days of Thunder'. Tony and I and Jerry, we never thought that we would do it again. Then they started to come to us with these ideas of where it is now. I thought, 'Wow, that would be ... what we could do now.' " That's what Tom Cruise told MTV in last year, which first got 80's film fanatics excited about a possible sequel to their much-loved aviation action classic. Now, though, according to The New York Times, the sequel has fallen apart in the wake of Scott's suicide, and all that's left is a possible rehash of the film; a 3D remake, that will offer nothing new to the viewers, apart from a third dimension of course, and perhaps some HD touch ups. But what fans really want is another dimension to the story; another plot line, more conflict, more planes. Alas, it looks like the suicide of one of Hollywood's greats also heralded the death of one of his finest creations.

The medical truths are now known about Scott's death; he didn't have inoperable cancer, and had a comfortable level of medication his body - nothing that would worry a doctor - but the psychological reasoning behind his suicide have left many in Limbo.
