Not only is “Top Gun 2” actually in the process of being developed right now, it also has Tom Cruise‘s backing.

The actor has been making media rounds promoting his upcoming flick “Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol,” and during an interview MTV News asked him about his commitment to the project. It turns out that his interest largely stems on the fact he wants to work with director Tony Scott again.

“I said to Tony, I want to make another movie with him. He and I haven’t made a film since ‘Days of Thunder,'” Cruise explained. “Tony and I and Jerry [Bruckheimer], we never thought that we would do it again. Then they started to come to us with these ideas of where it is now. I thought, ‘Wow, that would be … what we could do now.”

For the uninitiated, the first news of “Top Gun 2” popped up last October when “Valkyrie” screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie said he and Paramount were working on an idea for “Top Gun 2” with Cruise, Scott and Bruckheimer all returning. Fast-forward to this October when McQuarrie was replaced by “X-Men: First Class” scribes Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz to complete the project.

The key to the upcoming flick is, in Scott’s words, that “it’s not even a reinvention, it’s not even a sequel. It’s a re-thinking.” Apparently this time the “Top Gun” story will be told from the perspective of “guys sitting in Nevada on computers playing war games” and follows the “end of the generation of fighter pilots.” Needless to say, it’s “a very different movie.”

It seems like it’s that component of the story that drew Cruise to the project.

“I hope we can figure this out to go do it again. If we can find a story that we all want to do, we all want to make a film that is in the same kind of tone as the other one and shoot it in the same way as we shot ‘Top Gun,'” he said. “We’re working on it.”

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
