The honeymoon has certainly been over for 3D in 2011; U.S. audience have been staying away from the format in droves, choosing to seek out 2D screenings of blockbusters, and it all culminated in August in a goggled-clusterfuck where "Final Destination 5," "Conan," "Fright Night" and "Spy Kids 4" all cannibalized each other, while 2D pictures "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" and "The Help" dominated the box office. But Hollywood executives aren't done with wringing every penny that they can from the format. The next phase? taking proven blockbusters and giving them the headache-y, pop up book treatment.

Director Has Round About Way Of Saying New Film Will Focus On New Generation Of Fighter PilotsYou've obviously heard the news by now. There's a "Top Gun" sequel on the way, Tony Scott, while apparently not officially signed on yet (according to a recent Deadline aside), is still very interested in reprising his role as the director — obviously he's a big part of what made the original so iconic, so you can understand why he'd want to see that through — and despite original reports, screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie — who's sort of become Tom Cruise's go-to script doctor these days — says that Maverick (Cruise's role in the original), will indeed be the lead character (evidently the thought is how can you possibly make a sequel without Mav as the lead).

Are you ready America!?! Are you read for the return of Maverick!?! Well you better be because "Top Gun 2" isn't going to be some sissy way-after-fact sequel with a bunch of guys you don't know with Tom Cruise popping his head in to give a thumbs up. No siree. The Maverick himself is going to be leading the charge on this one.

Every so often, particularly every time Tom Cruise makes a film that disappoints at the box office, the rumors of a potential sequel to "Top Gun," the film that transformed Cruise from cocky teen star to a true icon, start up. 22 years on from the original, with "Knight & Day" tanking at the domestic box office over the summer, rumors began to surface over the summer and, as usual with reports on this one, we rolled our eyes a little.
