Tom Cruise Says ‘Top Gun’ Sequel ‘would Be Fun’

26 Jul 2015 | Author: | No comments yet »

More Maverick? Tom Cruise is totally up for a ‘Top Gun’ sequel.

Tom Cruise said he didn’t want a stunt double to pull off one of the epic scenes for “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” so he suited up and did it himself. Whether it’s his indomitable work ethic, the power of Xenu coursing through his veins or him being an indestructible android sent from a distant future, Tom Cruise is unstoppable. Last month, film producer and Skydance media company Chief Executive David Ellison was quoted in media reports as saying work on a “Top Gun 2″ screenplay was underway. “It would be fun. I want to shoot it like how we shot the first one.” Cruise made his comments at the London premiere of his latest movie, Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation, in which he performs several dangerous stunts.

Cruise, known for performing his own stunts, returns to the silver screen as agent Ethan Hunt in the fifth instalment of the “Mission: Impossible” action films. Rogue Nation will have plenty of the kind of action scenes that have helped make the series so popular, from a wild car chase through the streets of Morocco to Cruise jumping feet first into some sort of water vortex. When Ethan Hunt (Cruise) is confronted and cornered by IMF director Eugene Kittridge (Henry Czerny), he uses an explosive stick of gum to destroy the restaurant’s giant aquarium, sending a wall of water cascading through the place and into the street. The sequence was shot on sets with green screens, but Cruise was being battered by a powerful wind machine while dangling from mock-ups of a bullet train and a chopper.

When he’s not on the job, Ethan apparently likes to stay in shape by climbing treacherous red rock peaks in Moab, Utah, as seen in M:I-2’s opening scene. Whether you like director John Woo or not, this scene had his fingerprints all over it, as Ethan and rogue agent Sean Ambrose (Dougray Scott) end a motorcycle chase by jumping off their bikes and colliding in midair. Practical sets and digital effects were blended for this sequence, but Cruise did get yanked by a cable into a nearby car to simulate being tossed through the air by an explosion.
