Top Gun 2 is grounded

Sequel won't take flight after all

Production efforts for Top Gun 2 have been called off.

Sequel won't take flight after all

It was over before it ever took flight.

Sadly, just about a month into scouting locations with lead Tom Cruise, director Tony Scott took his own life.

Scott died on Aug. 20, and understandably the film has unraveled in his wake.

Paramount Pictures pulled the plug on a sequel as the film just won't carry the same momentum without Scott behind the wheel.

On a positive note, Scott's legacy will live on in 3D as the original Top Gun is receiving an anticipated facelift for a whole new experience in the near future.

Paramount reeled in $3 million with September's 3D rendition of Raiders of the Lost Ark, so there's still hope for Top Gun.
