I heard some movie folks from Paramount Pictures were visiting NAS Fallon this week doing research for a new movie about Top Gun. It's been 25 years since the original Top Gun movie filled the big screen– and it was a huge box office hit. People loved the flying scenes, many of which were actually filmed in Fallon.
Can they do it again? Will Tom Cruise star in Top Gun-2? A couple of Naval Aviators– call signs "Toast" and "Space Camp" — took the Hollywood scouts around the base, so they could see what life at the real TOPGUN school is like.
Sorry, the real TOPGUN students don't play volleyball with their shirts off, to music. They do study hard, fly hard and work incredibly long hours. But no worries, Hollywood will always find a way to make the story fast and fun… if they decide to green-light the picture.
We'll keep you up to date if we hear any more details. It's funny, if you ask the guys who fly at TOPGUN if they like the movie, they say "Yeah, it was okay." If you ask their wives, they all loved it. Why is that?
