HOLLYWOOD – Maverick is back in Top Gun 2, which now has a title and first image.
Top Gun 2 will go ahead with Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer reprising their roles as Maverick and Iceman. Tom dropped by the Studio Exec bungalow to discuss the new movie:
It’s great. The title is Top Gun: Stair Lift. Me and Val are not as young as we once were. It’d be ridiculous to have us still flying fighter planes. We just can’t do it. Instead we’ve both retired with dodgy hips, but we don’t want to move out of our houses and get like bungalows. So we have these stair lifts installed, but still feeling the need for speed, we soup them up so they travel at amazing speeds.
I know. When I told Val about it, he was so happy. Frankly, I think he was worried that he’d have to get in shape, but the stair lifts are quite resistant. So we start racing these stair lifts as a way of supplementing our pensions. There’s this whole hidden world of illegal stair lift races that no one knows anything about. And the Russian mafia are involved so we actually come face to face with one of the fighter pilots who used to attack us with MIGs. It’s really exciting.
