I use this Rogue Nation pic because it reminds me on some of the bike scenes from Top Gun, only modernized. Jerry Bruckheimer has been talking about Top Gun: Maverick again (which is what Top Gun 2 is now called).
In a new interview with Metro, he says he’s very aware that the new movie needs to be special and the bar they have to clear is far higher than a lot of the other sequels he’s worked on:
“I’ll tell ya, any movie you make has pressure there, and when you have an iconic movie like Top Gun you know the bar is really high. But we try to raise the bar in everything we do so it’s all about getting enormously talented people to work on it, and Tom is such a gifted not only actor, but also he produced this thing and he’s got a real sense of what the audience wants and what he likes.”
Another problem is that they also have to break the problem/curse of old movies being sequelized decades later. You couldn’t pay me to watch Indiana Jones 4 right now, or ever, again.
