The Hollywood grapevine and other gossip networks
are all atwitter
over the news that Paramount Pictures is reportedly in talks with producer Jerry "Blow It Up" Bruckheimer and director Tony Scott about a sequel to their 1986 movie, "Top Gun," which made a megastar of the Grumman F-14 (and some other folks). With rumors of Tom Cruise returning as a Top Gun instructor, the dishing on Web sites is delectable: "Would rather see Val Kilmer back as Iceman. Heck, even a fat Val Kilmer would be better than Cruise." And: "This has 'Karate Kid IV' written all over it."
