Paramount Pictures is banking on the fact that movie goers still feel the need. The need for speed.
It hopes to release a 3D version of Top Gun in early 2012.
According to Rob Hummel - the CEO of Legend3D, which would convert this 1986 classic into three dimensions - Paramount is awaiting approval from Tony Scott. But the studio hopes to get it and have the Tom Cruise action flick in theaters by next spring.
"I think Top Gun lends itself to 3D due to the aerial flight," Hummel told The Hollywood Reporter. "You can have fun with 3D by bringing things off the screen if they are not attached to the edge of the screen.
Talk has died down, but this rumor would lend credence to the possibility that a Top Gun sequel really might get made someday. Would you wanna fly with Maverick again?
