Top Gun

It’s a bit difficult to address the issue of the status of Top Gun 2 without being reminded of the tragic suicide of Tony Scott. In the days after the director took his own life, many of the projects that he was developing came to a halt, but Paramount was still deciding whether or not it would be proper to continue on without the director who brought the first film to the big screen. There is also the issue of the post-3D conversion of the film that was suppose to hit theaters later on next year.

Now the New York Times is reporting that Top Gun 2 has stalled and it’s not likely that production for the sequel will move forward. The report didn’t provide any details as to how Paramount came to this decision, but it looks as if the studio did not want to appear to be insensitive to the Scott family by replacing Tony with another director.

As for the 3D release, word is that Paramount is trying to figure out how to release the film in a proper and respectful manner. According to the report, the conversion is done and if and when they do release it, Paramount hopes that it can open in theaters in China, where the 3D conversion of Titanic was a huge hit. But the studio intends on releasing the film, it’s just a matter of finding the right time to do so, whether or not they stick to the February 2013 release remains to be seen.

So in the event that Top Gun 2 is brought up again, who do you think should direct it?
