We’ve heard about Top Gun 2 for several years now, but with the passing of original director Tony Scott and Tom Cruise’s consistently busy schedule, it’s hard to believe that it might actually happen. We may be closer to that long-developing sequel than ever before, as Cruise has met with producer Jerry Bruckheimer about Top Gun 2, and there’s photographic evidence to prove it.

Just 16 years after The Mummy Returns, The Mummy returns.
Rebecca Ferguson nearly stole the show right out from under Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, so it was hardly surprising when we learned that Paramount wanted the actress to be the first leading lady to appear in more than one M:I film. It looks like Christmas has come early for Paramount (and all of us), as Ferguson is reportedly set to reprise her role as Ilsa Faust in Mission: Impossible 6.
After it was announced that Tom Cruise would be starring in The Mummy reboot came rumors that the Mummy itself in the movie might actually be a woman. Well, Universal have kept their promise and gender-swapped the gauze-wrapped monster, casting Kingsman star Sofia Boutella (the sword-legged Gazelle) as the new Mummy.
There were not many ways to get me excited in a Mummy reboot, the first in a planned series of connected movies linking The Wolfman, Dracula, Frankenstein and more, but Universal has found a way. Tom Cruise is in talks to star in The Mummy and is expected to take a major role in developing the new monster universe.
Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation was one of the best M:I outings yet, thanks in no small part to Christopher McQuarrie’s script and direction, as well as Rebecca Ferguson’s kick-ass supporting role. Paramount clearly recognizes a good thing when they’ve got it, as the studio is reportedly in talks with McQuarrie to return to both write and direct Mission: Impossible 6, with the option for Ferguson to reprise her role, if she wants it.
Val Kilmer has taken to his personal Facebook page to post a Top Gun 2 status update with ramifications on a scale that we can only describe as tectonic.
This fall production begins on not one, but two highly anticipated action film sequels (both titled after their protagonists): Jack Reacher 2 and John Wick 2. Today brings an update on the former, as director Ed Zwick has formally begun production on Jack Reacher 2, adding a couple of new cast members and giving the sequel an official title.
It’s going to be pretty hard to top the delightful, evil antics of filmmaker Werner Herzog, whose turn as the villain in Jack Reacher was absolutely wonderful, to say the least. And maybe Jack Reacher 2 director Ed Zwick is well-aware of the impossibility of topping Herzog — instead of trying to one-up the first film, Zwick has turned his attention to the small screen in selecting Tom Cruise’s foil for the upcoming sequel.
Jack Reacher 2 is going to be a bit of a family affair when it heads into production this November. Based on Lee Childs’ novel Never Go Back, the highly anticipated sequel is giving the eponymous hero a daughter (kind of) who just happens to already be a hero of sorts. Heroes Reborn star Danika Yarosh has joined Jack Reacher 2 in the role of Tom Cruise’s daughter.
