7 17 Issue 77 / 2015 FILM A sequel to the 1986 classic is officially happening The Top Gun follow up has been up in the air for a few years but producer David Ellison has now confirmed that the screenplay is being worked on. He also confirmed that Maverick is set to return in a lead capacity and not in a cameo role as previously suspected, saying, "There is an amazing role for Maverick in the movie and there is no Top Gun without Maverick, and it is going to be Maverick playing Maverick." Plot details are thin on the ground at this early stage but Ellison has revealed that this time it'll be less about dogfighting and more about drones. As he told Collider, "when you look at the world of dogfighting, what's interesting about it is that it's not a world that exists to the same degree when the original movie came out….It's drone technology…It's really exploring the end of an era of dogfighting and fighter pilots and what that culture is today." It's also been hinted that the film might be released in 3D and IMAX - most big budget action flicks are nowadays anyway – and as Tom Cruise still loves doing all the action, we're expecting some epic stunts. And that's all we've got really; no release date, no script, no director and no cast aside from Cruise. But it's happening. Top Gun 2 is cleared for Take-off cominG soon Fantastic Four August 7th It's summer and that means one thing in cinema land: superheroes. 20th Century Fox are going for young and cool this time round with Kate Mara, Jamie Bell, Miles Teller and Michael B. Jordan in the cast (and the title is even being stylised at FANT4STIC). Not many plot details – the squad teleport to an alternate universe, they are left with new physical abilities, they have to save the world – but it looks to be more emotional and character driven than superhero flashy. The Man From U.N.C.L.E August 14th You never know what you're gonna get with Guy Ritchie, sometimes brilliant (Snatch, Lock Stock), sometimes terrible (Revolver), so we don't know how The Man From U.N.C.L.E will pan out. And when the main character is named Napoleon Solo, it really could go either way. The "spy fi action comedy", which is based on the 1964 TV series of the same name, looks great from an aesthetic point of view though, and the cast is fantastic - Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer, Alicia Vikander, Hugh Grant - so fingers crossed it's a good one. Straight Outta Compton August 28th The film will chart the rise and fall of the pioneering rap group N.W.A, with O'Shea Jackson Jr, Cube's son, playing Ice Cube, Jason Mitchell playing Eazy-E, and Corey Hawkins playing Dr Dre. Ice Cube said of the movie, "We're taking it to the nooks and crannies, I think deeper than any other article or documentary on the group". The production has not been without its controversies though – Suge Knight was involved in a hit and run with people connected to the film and MC Ren has blasted his portrayal in the movie – so it's going to be an interesting watch.
