Paramount Pictures is moving forward with Top Gun 2, and they've hired The Town screenwriter Peter Craig to take a crack at writing the script. I am one of the few people that thought The Town turned out like a student film; I didn't really care for it.
As for Top Gun 2, it's a completely different kind of film and it could be a good project for Craig to work on. The movie is being produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and will end up being a big tent pole spectacle that I'm sure will make a ton of money.
Craig will replace Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz (X-Men: First Class), who were originally hired to write the script but apparently never wrote anything. So it looks like Craig has a blank canvas to work with.
As of right now there are no plot details, but Tony Scott and Tom Cruise are expected to return to it in some compactly. The studio is very serious about the film, and it sounds like it's actually going to get made.
Where do you think the story should go with this sequel?
