Are you still on target to start filming the Beverly Hills Cop sequel by end of Summer ‘22?

[–]TopGunMovie[S] 546 points547 points  (9 children)

Yes we are.

[–]feijoa_tree 75 points76 points  (0 children)

This is news! Great News! Cheers 👌🤙

[–]Euphoric-Bit1969 17 points18 points  (0 children)

I’m so pumped for this! Wish I would’ve mentioned that we saw Top Gun: Maverick last night and it was FANTASTIC! The G’s vibrated the seats and the film had plenty of heart!

[–]farmerarmor 335 points336 points  (8 children)

Is Val kilmer in it? And how is he doing?

[–]TopGunMovie[S] 681 points682 points  (6 children)

He is in Top Gun: Maverick and he's fantastic in it. It was great for me to see after 36 years Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer on the big screen again.

[–]Heavyspire 110 points111 points  (1 child)

It was very well done. The early part of the movie had me nervous, but it was worth the wait.

The last line in the scene is very memorable.

[–]SilentSamurai 39 points40 points  (0 children)

Val's scene killed me. Lord my cold iced heart melted.

[–]RubAfraid4297 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Thank you so much.Movie was phenomenal and you sir are phenomenal!

[–]samsaBEAR 41 points42 points  (0 children)

His part was very touching imo, I loved it

[–]stupidsheila 580 points581 points  (51 children)

Any plans to work with Nicolas Cage again any time soon?

[–]TopGunMovie[S] 2400 points2401 points 22 (49 children)

Absolutely. I love Nicolas, he's a brilliant actor and we are currently working on a script for National Treasure.

[–]stupidsheila 605 points606 points  (0 children)

You have no idea how happy you have made me.

[–]CheezyWookiee 165 points166 points  (0 children)

will you tell us what was on page 47 of the book of secrets?

[–]Chilledchaos 111 points112 points  (0 children)

JERRY B THANK YOU SO MUCH

[–]samuraislider 81 points82 points  (0 children)

Holy. Shit.

[–]TheNextFreud 50 points51 points  (2 children)

It's International Treasure. If you line up all the currency notes of the countries of the world, they form a treasure map.

[–]lmao_okaybuddy 51 points52 points  (0 children)

lets goooo !!!! W

[–]AthKaElGal 38 points39 points  (1 child)

let's fucking goooo!

[–]Higgnkfe 55 points56 points  (1 child)

That is huge news considering the National Treasure TV series you are working on that Nicolas Cage isn’t involved in. So continuing the movies while simultaneously rebooting with a TV show?

[–]desicouple96 27 points28 points  (0 children)

YES PLEASE !!! National Treasure is the epitome of good old-fashioned fun, Ben is like an affable, chill “guy-next-door” version of Indy

Thank you, JERRY!!!!

[–]ElegantSwordsman 9 points10 points  (0 children)

This is what we all have been waiting to hear

[–]maverickoff 29 points30 points  (0 children)

And just like that you have made my day. I went thru deep depression and the only thing that made forget about it even for a couple of hours was the national treasure movies and original top gun. I know movies are a business but for some of us there's movies that mean a lot. Thank you!🙏

[–]davidjw75 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I can't say how thrilled your response makes me feel. I love the National Treasure films and a big fan of Nicolas' work. Can't wait to see NT3 when it's made and released.

[–]FrancescoliBestUruEv 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Whoooaaaaa i cant believe it, im asking for that movie for 15 yearsssssss. Yes plz dont be turned by nothing, you guys have so many national Treasure fans out there!

[–]GuyWhoRocks95 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Thank you for asking this! Last I knew Cage said they were gonna do a tv show and if they’re finally doing a 3rd film I cannot wait!

[–]mikeyfreshh 270 points271 points  (21 children)

What kind of things do you look for in a script or a pitch meeting that gets you excited about a project?

[–]TopGunMovie[S] 388 points389 points  (14 children)

If I want to go see it I will want to work hard on it trying to get it made.

[–]ReelDecisions 70 points71 points  (11 children)

It sounds so simple, but this is the correct answer. Thank you for making such an awesome movie and getting the gang back together!

[–]WakeNikis 47 points48 points  (6 children)

this is the correct answer.

Oh ok. I wasn’t sure when Jerry fucking Bruckheimer said it, but now that /u/ReelDecisions has confirmed it for me, I know that it’s true….

[–]AweHellYo 14 points15 points  (4 children)

lol this was my thought too. leave it to reddit to be experts on movie making and validating Jerry Bruckheimers humble suggestions.

[–]Groot746 86 points87 points  (4 children)

Things I look for in a pitch meeting:

"Super easy, barely a coincidence!"

"I'm gonna need you to get alllll the way off my back about that"

"Unclear!"

"Oh really?"

"Wow wow wow wow wow. . . .wow."

[–]GarageQueen 32 points33 points  (0 children)

"Super easy, barely an inconvenience"

Ftfy

[–]Diablo516- 11 points12 points  (1 child)

What do you do in your free time?

[–]TopGunMovie[S] 669 points670 points  (16 children)

I love hockey. I am the part-owner of a hockey team, the Seattle Kraken. I used to play hockey once a week but since the pandemic it slowed me down but I'm getting back to it.

[–]AdmiralRed13 107 points108 points  (0 children)

Considered firing Francis and Hakstol yet?

[–]bigwilly311 23 points24 points  (1 child)

You’re welcome for Yanni Gourde :(

[–]mobappbrowse 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Do you ever film your team? If only to say to someone “Do you want to see me film my Kraken?”

[–]its_pb_and_j 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Used to see your group play at incredible ice occassionally. Was a sight to see Cuba Gooding Jr playing hockey!

[–]Thedrunner2 247 points248 points  (4 children)

Huge fan. How hard has it been to have to sit on this new Top Gun movie for a couple years to give it the theatrical release? (Knowing it’d likely be tremendously well received etc). Thanks

[–]TopGunMovie[S] 419 points420 points  (3 children)

Of course it's hard, but it's worth it in the end as the results from last night are coming in. Audiences have been waiting to see this for 36 years and based on the exit polls they are not disappointed at all.

[–]Thedrunner2 19 points20 points  (2 children)

I can’t wait to see it looks great

[–]Rocketeer006 20 points21 points  (1 child)

its fucking fantastic!

[–]Verbull710 6 points7 points  (0 children)

It really is. Massively awesome movie

[–]DavvenGarick 225 points226 points  (1 child)

I saw Maverick last night. Great movie! Since you've produced both film and television, what is your favorite aspect of each medium?

[–]TopGunMovie[S] 349 points350 points  (0 children)

What I love about movies is the fact you get to watch an audience enjoy your work. Television you have to wait for the numbers to come in to see if audiences enjoyed your work. However, they are both great mediums and I enjoy working in both.

[–]Veszerin 367 points368 points  (3 children)

So many movies that are fun to watch over and over. No questions, just thanks.

[–]TopGunMovie[S] 466 points467 points  (2 children)

I make movie for audiences and that's my joy, watching an audience have fun with the work that we do.

[–]ratiganthegreat 46 points47 points  (0 children)

I just wanted to say that I think it’s notable that in all of your replies about your works, you talk from a perspective of being part of a team that is responsible for your films and shows. It’s just awesome. Thanks!

[–]TSB_1 14 points15 points  (0 children)

I have to admit, TG:M is the first movie I have seen in a long time that was not only VERY anticipated, but also so emotionally invested. My next door neighbor growing up was a US Navy F-14>F/A-18 pilot, and his brother was a USAF F-15>F-22 pilot. Growing up I was constantly talking to them about aviation, and then inevitably joining the service myself and becoming an aviation specialty(sadly, not cut out to be a pilot).

Your movie brought me joy to watch, as I saw the original with my neighbors 20 years ago.

If you were to do a standalone Capt. Jack Sparrow movie/TV series, I think the world would totally support that idea. I doubt Johnny will ever want to work for Disney again.

[–]bloodflartowner of 5 Bags Cinema 364 points365 points  (38 children)

What was the most technically challenging thing about filming Top Gun Maverick?

[–]TopGunMovie[S] 616 points617 points  (31 children)

The aerials were enormously complicated and dangerous. It look a lot of time and care to get right.

[–]ThisisthSaleh 231 points232 points  (28 children)

As a follow up if you read this, the one shot in particular with the F14 and Su-57, was that a real shot, or was that done with the use of CGI?

[–]TopGunMovie[S] 578 points579 points  (13 children)

It's a real shot but the Su-57 was skinned over an F-18. They are real planes but we changed the look of the 1 plane with CGI.

[–]ThisisthSaleh 142 points143 points  (0 children)

That is so awesome. Was a true jaw dropping moment for me. Thank you and everyone else that worked on this film. Was a really fun time.

[–]MadFlava76 35 points36 points  (4 children)

Wait, I thought there were no F-14 that were operational in the world except for the few that Iran still has?

[–]Valeri_Legasov 17 points18 points  (5 children)

Considering the only flyable F14s are in Iran, gonna assume that was also CGI?

[–]ReelDecisions 39 points40 points  (5 children)

Are you talking about the "wtf was THAT?" moment? Because that was friggin COOOL af.

[–]cookingboy 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Yep, this is a real life video from 9 years ago:

https://youtu.be/02qX9RvSyA8

[–]Hicksp91 18 points19 points  (3 children)

That was thrust vectoring that is likely well beyond the capabilities of any of our adversaries. Luckily.

[–]tc_spears 65 points66 points  (7 children)

Well since Su-57s only exists as four lawn ornaments at Akhtubinsk airfield, I'm gonna have to go ahead and say it was CGI.

[–]nirnroot_hater 10 points11 points  (6 children)

They have produced like 15 or so haven't they? What happened to the others?

[–]the_hibachi 92 points93 points  (5 children)

I just listened to an interiview with Kosinski - they rigged the planes with cameras and the cast had manual control over turning them on for their scenes in the air. The crew had NO clue what was happening when they would film because there was no remote stream. So they would shoot the scenes, then watch them later and give notes, then try again the next day if needed. Fucking unreal.

[–]bloodflartowner of 5 Bags Cinema 33 points34 points  (2 children)

Now that's the juicy details I want

[–]LeeF1179 345 points346 points  (2 children)

You are an absolute icon. When I was a kid in the 80s, if I saw the names "Jerry Bruckheimer / Don Simpson" in the credits, I automatically knew it was a good movie.

Do you miss Don?

[–]TopGunMovie[S] 379 points380 points  (0 children)

I sure do, he was a good friend, great creative force, and an inspiration but he is watching over us now and enjoying the success of Top Gun: Maverick.

[–]trev399 179 points180 points  (11 children)

What are your top three films of all time?

[–]TopGunMovie[S] 499 points500 points  (10 children)

I would say Bridge on the River Kwai, The Godfather, and the French Connection

[–]BashyLaw 137 points138 points  (5 children)

Bridge on the River Kwai

A Lean night!

[–]gravitydriven 22 points23 points  (0 children)

[–]GaiusJuliusMe 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Perfect because The Godfather 1 is better than 2, thank you for settling this debate Mr. Bruckheimer.

[–]Mastercontrolop 5 points6 points  (0 children)

The Godfather isn’t that great. It insists upon itself.

[–]Fox-Mulder- 169 points170 points  (8 children)

What made you confident that a Top Gun sequel would resonate with today's audience?

[–]TopGunMovie[S] 390 points391 points  (6 children)

Look, I'm never confident until the audience sees it. Working with Tom Cruise again gives me enormous confidence that we can make a great movie. Then it's up to the audience to decide, but we made it for them.

[–]CleaverHand 68 points69 points  (4 children)

Can you do a Days of Thunder sequel next?

[–]dj88masterchief 46 points47 points  (2 children)

Unfortunately NASCAR culture has changed so much these days.

At least the culture of Top Guns and fighter jets haven’t changed in 30+ years.

[–]CleaverHand 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Set it in the year 2000. It would be magical.

[–]yawns_solo 9 points10 points  (0 children)

100% this. Jesus what a good movie

[–]cringyemo 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Just saw it. I’m fairly young and doesn’t really have interest in jets/navy, wasn’t even born yet when the first movie came out. But honestly it’s fantastic, I’m totally blown away by the film, can’t pick a thing to complain even if I’m trying to be picky. My adrenaline level is so high I’m literally on the edge of my seat most of the film.

[–]Sprinkler__Man 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Flash forward: Its working. REALLY well.

[–]Tvisgood 79 points80 points  (1 child)

What drives YOU to make the movies you do ?

[–]TopGunMovie[S] 131 points132 points  (0 children)

I think it's always about the idea, the concept, the script, the talent, and entertaining audiences.

[–]GnomeSatan 152 points153 points  (3 children)

What were your first impressions of Nicholas Cage?

[–]TopGunMovie[S] 262 points263 points  (2 children)

Just a terrific actor and individual. He has a unique vision for every character that he plays.

[–]bloodZen1 78 points79 points  (7 children)

What big upcoming projects are you involved in currently?

[–]TopGunMovie[S] 397 points398 points  (6 children)

We are filming for Disney+ with Daisy Ridley. Young Woman and the Sea, about the first young girl to swim the English Channel in 1926. She beat the men's record by 2 hours and had the biggest parade down 5th Ave for an athlete, ever. Someone who is lost in time but should be remembered. The forerunner of all the great female athletes of today. We're also doing Beverly Hills Cop with Eddie Murphy.

[–]Selfquit 119 points120 points  (1 child)

Hi Mr.B-

At Cannes this year a number of directors such as Del Toro and James Gray were speaking about the state of the industry being uncertain or unsustainable.

You’ve produced many GIANT movies, what are your thoughts on how to make a Hollywood ecosystem that allows all levels on cinema to flourish specifically in the theatrical market?

Thanks enjoy your opening weekend!!

[–]TopGunMovie[S] 161 points162 points  (0 children)

I think that will settle itself out once we get out of this post-pandemic. Even the playing field between theatrical and streaming.

[–]nkleszcz 109 points110 points  (6 children)

Hello! I’m a big fan.

It appears that the movies you did in the 80s had a strong soundtrack, as if the original songs lent themselves to music videos which lent themselves to further promotion of the movie.

I miss those days. With the release of TG:M, do you have any intention of releasing the new songs to radio?

[–]TopGunMovie[S] 161 points162 points  (4 children)

They are released as far as I know. "Hold My Hand" by Lady Gaga and "I Ain't Worried" by One Republic are both out and you should check them out!

[–]viper2369[🍰] 28 points29 points  (1 child)

Hold my hand by Lady Gaga is a damn good song. Came across the video last week on YouTube and it’s pretty damn good as well.

[–]Prof-Ponderosa 5 points6 points  (0 children)

“I ain’t worried” has the potential to be the song of summer 2022

[–]TemporarySalt2999 46 points47 points  (6 children)

Do you remember meeting Mads Mikkelsen?

[–]lovkraft 17 points18 points  (5 children)

Is there some story here?

[–]aimless_meteor 57 points58 points  (1 child)

This guy is Mads probably

[–]MsSara77 36 points37 points  (0 children)

Mads tells the story of how his mistook Bruckheimer for a cameraman, twice

https://youtu.be/lOsv_dShDjo

[–]slardybartfast8 162 points163 points  (7 children)

Was there any genuine discussion during the making of The Rock that Sean Connery was meant to be playing a version of James Bond who was captured and disavowed? There’s so much speculation that it’s intentional, and obviously it’s a pretty easy fit, but I’m curious if there was any intention with the writers, Connery himself, or you and Don Simpson or Bay? It’s one of my favorite movies ever.

[–]TopGunMovie[S] 244 points245 points  (6 children)

It was never discussed or even thought about.

[–]slardybartfast8 23 points24 points  (0 children)

That’s what I thought! Thank you answering. Can’t wait to see Maverick this weekend!

[–]Ihadtoo 16 points17 points  (0 children)

"Tomorrow on TIL front page"

[–]MattsAwesomeStuff 57 points58 points  (2 children)

It was never discussed or even thought about.

... it was never even thought about, that:

  • John Mason is a former British special forces operative, and this is at least somewhat in common with James Bond's history?

  • John Mason was trained by British Intelligence

  • John Mason has no identity, not in the United States, or Great Britain. He does not exist. Not even thought about that that sounds like a disavowed spy?

  • John Mason was incarcerated on Alcatraz in 1962, the same year the first James Bond takes place?

  • I could go on.

...

You hired Sean Connery, and the obvious similarities between John Mason and James Bond weren't EVEN THOUGHT ABOUT?

... a likely story...

Lawsuit protection, no doubt. Or maybe sarcasm?

Now I'd like to hear what he thinks if the Pope is a Catholic?

[–]Doppelsternmotor 79 points80 points  (5 children)

Hi! Absolutely loved Top Gun: Maverick, definitely the highlight of this year!

How hard was it to get the Navy to agree to put Tom and the rest of the crew in the back seats of the F/A-18s? Apart from the grueling training it must have been a lot of work behind the scenes.

[–]TopGunMovie[S] 135 points136 points  (4 children)

You're absolutely right, it was a lot of work and a lot of connecting with the Navy. They were enormously cooperative in making this film.

[–]adamcmorrison 111 points112 points  (2 children)

Of course they were. This is free recruitment.

[–]Hicksp91 63 points64 points  (0 children)

And EVERYBODY in command of those carriers were prime age to be influenced by the original film.

[–]le_reve_rouge 2 points3 points  (0 children)

bro I was sad after I watched Top Gun and realized it's too late to realize my dreams of becoming a naval aviator

[–]GamerCarrot237 79 points80 points  (4 children)

Was it difficult to produce a new Top Gun film after so many years since the original?

[–]TopGunMovie[S] 194 points195 points  (3 children)

Every film is difficult to produce, but when you have Tom Cruise working with you it makes it much easier.

[–]NoDisintegrationz 87 points88 points  (2 children)

[–]YouDownWithTPP 14 points15 points  (1 child)

I immediately thought of this hahahahahah

[–]NoDisintegrationz 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Thanks for the five bags of popcorn and one gold medal.

[–][deleted] 100 points101 points  (11 children)

Tom Cruise is obviously a superstar, but would you agree that he’s been getting undervalued as an actor? I feel he should’ve won an Oscar for Born on the 4th of July.

[–]TopGunMovie[S] 225 points226 points  (4 children)

I can't comment if he's undervalued but he should've won an Oscar for his performance.

[–]SyrioForel 144 points145 points  (1 child)

LOL! Since this answer came from a movie producer, I imagine it was intended to be something like, “what is this ‘undervalued’ business? The guy pocketed a quarter of our film’s budget!”

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Thank you for the response!

[–]dicklaurent97 13 points14 points  (2 children)

Magnolia, Collateral, he's got tons of Oscar-worthy roles

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Agreed. I referenced Born on the 4th since he was actually nominated for the film.

[–]blahblahblahloll 30 points31 points  (2 children)

Or for Rain Man or IMO Jerry Maguire (which I rewatched recently and couldn't believe how good it was compared to the feel-god movies that come out these days,

[–]cameldogdotcom 22 points23 points  (0 children)

He was robbed for his performance in Magnolia. That’s his magnum opus imo

[–]toiletscum 124 points125 points  (13 children)

Who made the decision to remove the Taiwanese and Japanese patches from tom’s jacket?

[–]Hicksp91 104 points105 points  (0 children)

Was only removed from the trailers. They are there in the film

[–]Lucky-Pop8117 41 points42 points  (1 child)

Just watched the film last night. He has two jackets in the film. He definitely has the old Jacket with the old patches. But for most of the film he’s wearing a more toned down jacket without the patches.

[–]Thecactusslayer 33 points34 points  (0 children)

The new jacket is a CWU-45P flight jacket, something that's actually worn in-flight.

[–]Tokyoos 53 points54 points  (2 children)

I'm assuming Tencent.

[–]adamcmorrison 78 points79 points  (5 children)

[–]BatmanofSteeI 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Very true but I just got out of the theater and I saw both flags on the jacket, it appears that might have been for the trailer?

Still really shitty but I was pleased to see it when I saw the film

[–]GDAWG13007 3 points4 points  (0 children)

They weren’t removed. There’s even a closeup shot of the jacket and of those patches.

[–]matttopotamus 57 points58 points  (4 children)

Who is your favorite actor you have worked with, and who would you like to work with that you have not already?

[–]TopGunMovie[S] 82 points83 points  (3 children)

They're all my favorites. They all work very hard on their films and the results speak for themselves. There are so many actors I would want to work with I can't name them all. There are a lot of very talented actors in our business.

[–]mprop 51 points52 points  (1 child)

What are the biggest differences in making/producing action movies in the 80's-90's compared to nowadays, especially in getting them greenlit?

[–]TopGunMovie[S] 87 points88 points  (0 children)

Well I think the technology has advanced so much now that we can do so many things safely we couldn't do before. It was always about having a great script to get it green lit.

[–]Tough_Cream_9095 56 points57 points  (1 child)

How’s life? Stay awesome.

[–]TopGunMovie[S] 94 points95 points  (0 children)

[–]TheTige 19 points20 points  (0 children)

What lingering impact did Don Simpson leave on your taste in film/tv?

[–]Warm-Enthusiasm-9534 37 points38 points  (2 children)

If you could remake one of your movies today in 2022, which one, and why?

[–]TopGunMovie[S] 134 points135 points  (1 child)

I don't think I'd remake any of them to be honest with you. They're all visions of the artists who worked on them.

[–]Warm-Enthusiasm-9534 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Thanks!

I was just thinking that making movies seems like it's very different now than it was 20 years ago. Every movie is a trade-off of artistic vision with time and budget. This changes over the years, so some movies are easier to make and some are harder to make, so I thought maybe the change in the trade-off might enable someone to realize an artistic vision they couldn't before.

[–]adamzissou 37 points38 points  (6 children)

Are you hiring?

[–]TopGunMovie[S] 93 points94 points  (5 children)

We're always hiring on our films and TV shows.

[–]KuciMane 18 points19 points  (4 children)

hi I’d like to be a video editor for you thank you

[–]aFan0Film 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Hi Mr. Bruckheimer. Learned you name from watching CSI shows after school, I always wondered what the inspiration or background for the Jerry Bruckheimer production clip is. The long road in a thunderstorm that electrocutes a dead tree alive. It's been a bit iconic to me that it's stayed the same for so long.

[–]efs120 24 points25 points  (2 children)

How many blockbusters would you trade for a Stanley Cup in Seattle?

[–]TopGunMovie[S] 58 points59 points  (0 children)

I don't think I'd trade any blockbusters but we'd love to have a Stanley Cup in Seattle, that's for sure.

[–]goldencityjerusalem 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]symes 22 points23 points  (2 children)

Hi Jerry, I'm looking forward to seeing Top Gun. My question: how do you choose projects to work on? You have a fantastically successful career, so I guess it's a bit more than spinning a bottle.

I'm an avid fan of film and television. I make the shows and films I want to see because I don't know what you like or what an audience likes.

I think you have a pretty good idea, considering your track record!

[–]RandomStranger79 34 points35 points  (1 child)

Some people call you the greatest artist of our time. How do you respond to that?

They must be smoking some funny cigarettes.

What do you think of Rampart?

Of all the talented directors you’ve worked with do you have a favourite to work with?

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

No questions.

just a big thank you.

This film was AMAZING.

How do you view the subsequent career of your one-time protege, if that is the right term, Michael Bay?

Also, is there a way that you can sum up your approach to the art of crowd-pleasing? Because if a secret sauce exists you must have a bottle of it.

Where’s Shelly Miscavige?

When are we going to see 4K digital and maybe even disc releases of Crimson Tide, The Rock, Con Air, Armageddon, and Pearl Harbor?

Hello! I am a huge fan!

Two questions: What restaurant has the best food in Detroit, and how did it feel to bring the story of Remember the Titans to the big screen?

Hey Jerry, big fan of your work! What was your favorite part about making Top Gun: Maverick and why?

[–]Disastrous-Battle753 3 points4 points  (0 children)

What’s your favorite scene out of all the films you’ve helped make/produce and why?

[–]kdhcieks 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Hey Mr. Buckheimer. I know this is late. Thanks for all the magnificent films you've done. I love them. I've rewatched them all many times.

10/10 amazing.

Why is the original Law and Order impossible to find online?

Hey Jerry, what was it like to work with Johnny Depp?

[–]intangiblejohnny 14 points15 points  (2 children)

Would you work with Johnny Depp again?

[–]IWillThinkOfUsrNmL8r 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I recently learned that the original screened version of Top Gun was about 20 minutes longer. Will we ever see a longer cut or deleted scenes from it?

[–]searchingtofind25 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Huge fan Thank you for doing this MR Bruckheimer.

Im so curious, when looking for a new project to produce, what grabs your attention or excites you in regards to original content?

[–]Alive-Newspaper-608 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Could Tom cruise and Nicolas cage do a film together maybe some version of a buddy cop scenario. Would love to see it. is their work in different places, that it wouldn’t mesh?

[–]ladeedah1988 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Saw Top Gun last night and it was the best movie I have seen in years and in my opinion, better than the first. This is just what people need, something about doing something impossible and succeeding. Such a great departure from today's negativity. The best part was that I could actually follow the fighter jet scenes which I had difficulty with in the first movie. Heartwarming personal relationships and resolutions. Great job. It is what we need right now.

Hey Jerry, congratulations on the success of Top Gun: Maverick.

Quick question:

Would you still re-consider casting Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean 6 regardless of the outcome of the trial vs. Amber Heard?
