Tom Cruise Was Working With Tony Scott On A Top Gun Sequel

Filed under: Film FlickersTom CruiseSad Sad

Tom Cruise has already stated that he "will really miss" his "dear friend" Tony Scott and so will fans of the duo's 1986 classic, Top Gun.

It turns out they were actively working on the sequel!

Scott actually spent the last days of his life in preparation for the project. According to sources, both the director and Cruise toured a naval air station in Nevada last Friday to research the movie!

This only adds more mystery as to why such a successful man with what seems like so much to live for would decide to take his own life.

Whatever the answer to that difficult question is, we may never actually know, but probably don't need to anyway.

We have no idea what

Filed under: Tom CruiseR.I.P.Nicole KidmanSad Sad

Tony Scott elevated Tom Cruise's career to the next level in 1986 by directing him straight to the top of the box office in Top Gun.

Sadly, the director is no longer with us after taking his own life on Sunday, but his Maverick has said he'll "really miss him."

The actor, who also starred in Scott's 1990 racing drama Days of Thunder, released a statement saying:

Tony Scott 2

If you're like us, you have been wondering why a vibrant, successful man like Tony Scott would take his own life.

Many have assumed a secret battle with depression, but it looks like that was incorrect.

According to a source close to the Top Gun director, he had inoperable brain cancer.

We can only assume from this news that Tony's suicide was not a measure of desperation and sadness, but rather a choice to spare himself a

Director Tony Scott Leaps To His Death, Commits Suicide In San Pedro

Filed under: Film FlickersR.I.P.Sad Sad

Oh no! Such sad Hollywood news.

Director Tony Scott leapt to his death on Sunday afternoon. The man pulling the strings behind the scenes on films like Top Gun, True Romance, Man On Fire and most recently Unstoppable, jumped off of the Vincent Thomas Bridge in San Pedro, California.

Sources say that witnesses called 911 when they saw the 68-year-old park his Toyota Prius on the bridge, scale a barrier fence and then take his own life "without hesitation."

Authorities searched the murky water and eventually discovered Ridley Scott's younger brother's body four hours after he had jumped. A suicide note was found in his office.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife Donna and two young sons during this difficult time. He was a talented filmmaker and we'll miss his continued contributions to the entertainment industry, but have plenty of great movies to remember him by.

Rest in peace, Tony.

The Need For Speed flick we told you about is progressing faster and more furiously than we imagined, LOLz!!

DreamWorks recently acquired the rights to the script based off of ridiculously successful video game franchise, and studio execs promise this won't be some boring retread!!

Instead, they'll put the pedal to the metal and make a gritty action/adventure in the spirit of iconic '70s flicks like Bullit and Vanishing Point.
