No consultant. Doesn’t take long to film a movie. Just hope the script is decent, good plot and not too many special effects- like Maverick fighting robots or something.

Based on the promo photo I saw, I hope they at least attempt to answer why he's only an O6 30+ years later.

They’ll probably set the movie 10 years ago or so to justify O6. He doesn’t look like an O7+ yet.

Top Gun 2: Tail Hook

Plot Synopsis:

Nearly 30 years after Maverick and the entire cast from Top Gun were implicated in the Tail Hook Scandal and involuntarily separated, a video is posted on Facebook of Maverick and Ice Man in a compromising situation that would both embarrass and nauseate the most hardened Navy CPO.

In a post “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” world, can Maverick leverage his LGBTQ celebrity to re-enter the Navy and become the first openly gay CNO while reconnecting with his former adversary and lover Ice Man?

I have never watched the original all the way through. I always thought it was pretty freaking gay. I can't think that this one will be any less so.

Fade in on a dimly lit operations center:
The Captain stands alone, stoically eyeing the wall sized display Screen as the Naval Aviators approach their targets...

Chief of Staff: Sir - what do you think?

Captan Mitchell: I love Naval Aviators !!

Chief of staff: Excuse me sir?

Captain Mitchell: What can I say - I love Naval Aviators !!

Chief of staff: Uhm, that's good sir - what do you want to do - flight lead is asking for clearance to engage.

Captain Mitchell: (jumps up in his chair) I love Naval Aviators !!

Chief of Staff: (a stunned look of shock covers his face as the TOC begins to fill with muffled laughter) Sir, I've never seen you like this...

Captain Mitchell: (hops down from his chair and pumps his fist - then takes a knee at his chair while continuously pumping his fist)

Chief of Staff: (begins to panic as the voice of the flight lead begins to become increasingly desperate

Flight Leader: REQUESTING CLEARANCE TO ENGAGE

Captain Mitchell: (a look of calm comes over his face) I think it's a privilege to call yourself a Naval Aviator and it's something you have to earn. A Naval Aviator has the ability to create new and better realities, and improve conditions. As a Naval Aviator, when you drive past an accident, it's not like anyone else, it's, you drive past, you know you have to do something about it. You know you are the only one who can really help.
-Naval Aviators are the authorities on getting people off drugs.
-Naval Aviators are the authorities on the mind.
-Naval Aviators are the authorities on improving conditions.
-Naval Aviators can rehabilitate criminals.
-Naval Aviators can bring peace and unite cultures.

(an eerie silence falls over the TOC as lower ranking Sailors in the background can be seen slowly sneaking out of the room)

Chief of staff: Sir, we need clearance to enage !!! CAPTAIN MITCHELL WHAT DO WE SAY TO THE FLIGHT LEAD ???

Captain Mitchell: If you're a Naval Aviator, you see life, things, the way they are, in all its glory, in all of its perplexity, and the more you know as a Naval Aviator, the more you become overwhelmed by it.
I have to tell you something. It really is, you know, it's rough and tumble...
It's wild and woolly.
It's a blast; IT'S A BLAST.
It really is fun...... (Mitchell continues to mumble as blank look covers his face)

(The Flight leaders voice is heard over the PA system - WE JUST LOST "MERLIN" - WE ARE CHANGING COURSE TO ENGAGE HOSTILES)

Chief of Staff: Sir - we dont have time for this - we just lost Commander Wells - the situation has gone sideways and we need your input....

Flight Leader: THERE'S TOO MANY OF THEM - "SUNDOWN" JUST EJECTED - HIS PLANE IS GOING DOWN - WE NEED HELP

Chief of Staff: SIR!!! Commander Williams just ejected - we've lost two aircraft. We need authrizations to launch CSAR and reinforcements.........

Captain Mitchell: (oblivious to what is going on around him)
.....it really is fun, because dammit, there's nothing better than to going out there and fighting the fight!!

Chief of Staff: SIR - MAVERICK - I am taking charge if you aren't going to do anything

Captain Mitchell: I want to know that I've done everything I could every day I think of all those people out there who are depending on Naval Aviators.....

Flight Leader: I cant shake him - my wing man is out - "HOLLYWOOD" is on fire - he's going down...... no ejection from "HOLLYWOOD"- we've lost CDR Neven

Chief of Staff: DAMNIT MAVERICK - ICEMAN WAS RIGHT ALL ALONG

Captain Mitchell:
.......I think about it. It does make me feel we need more work, more help. Get those spectators on the playing field, or out of the arena. Really, that is how I feel about it. I do what I can, and I do it the way I do everything...

Flight Lead: I'm hit - eject eject eject

Chief of Staff: Flight Lead, I am launching CSAR and Red Squadron - they should be on you in less than 2 minutes

Captain Mitchell: (a look of alarm comes over his face as he his finally shaken back to reality)
What was that about ICEMAN ????

My doctor and his son met Maverick many years ago down in Texas. Maverick and his wife were headed to the Pentagon as I remember. Saw his business card; believe his name was mike Rodrigues?(sp).i think Cruise has been waiting for the right time and QUALITY SCRIPT.ive been an extra in 4 movies; long days shooting a movie.

I will be the lame ass here and admit that I will see it in theaters.
Can it be worse than the Star Wars "Prequels"?
I'll see it.

Will there be an Iron Eagle reboot?

Can Doug Masters be found alive in a Russian prison camp and Chuck Norris go rescue him as Maj Gen Scott McCoy, Commander of Delta Force?

He's in for a surprise, because my plot line has her undergoing a sex change operation.

OTOH, maybe he won't be surprised at all.

Don't tease me like that.

Can we get Samuel L Jackson in place of Louis Gossett though?

Don't forget the summer and winter safety stand downs, where the base safety officer has to tell a room full of adults that it might not be a good idea to deep fry a turkey in their living room.
