R.I.P. Tony Scott

Terrible tragedy. The director of my all time favorite movie, "Top Gun", jumped off of a bridge and killed himself today. I'm heart broken...

I know this is selfish, but what does this mean for the 3D re-release of "Top Gun" and the much awaited, rumored sequel?

Yes I was sad to hear this, my wife spent 2 wonderful days with Tony Scott editing his movie "Man on Fire" he was 1 of the few directers that would sit through the entire post theatrical release editing sessions. He was a Porsche enthusiast, drove his aircooled 911 to the editing session & enjoyed talking to my wife about "her" Boxster.


As for TopGun II Tom Cruise was recently checking out locations, so it might still happen.

He also did "The Hunger", which I saw in a theatre in about 1980/1981. When I saw "Top Gun" a few years later, I **immediately** recognized his style, and knew that the same guy had done this film ... and I'm not usually enough of an artistic type to notice that. I really liked his work.

Yes, Tony & his brother Ridley are both noted for that.

I was at the Apple Valley, CA airport about 3 years ago having lunch where apparently Tom Cruise had just been there scouting out a location for some kind of vintage WWII aircraft drama movie.

Did he ever get one like that one started or made? No idea what it was to be called.

Not that I'm aware of...just "Valkyrie", but not an aircraft movie.

Is there any truth to the rumor that Tom Cruise was seen giving John Travolta a massage
at the Apple Valley Airport ?

If I had to pick a guy to give me a massage, it would be Tommy boy
