MTV Movies Blog recently spoke with Top Gun 2 director Tony Scott, who revealed that the movie isn't actually a sequel, but a "re-thinking" of the first Top Gun movie. Here's what he told the site below:
"It's not even a reinvention, it's not even a sequel. It's a re-thinking. What inspired me is that the world today is great, it's so different from the world we touched originally. It's really run by guys sitting in Nevada on computers playing war games."
"I'm gonna withhold that information. I can't say anything. I'm talking with Jerry Bruckheimer, and I'm going to withhold [those other details]."
