'Top Gun' sequel will see Tom Cruise grappling with drone warfare, Jerry Bruckheimer says


...Jerry Bruckheimer is taking one of his biggest hits out of the hanger and adding a modern twist to make it relevant to 21st century moviegoers.

Plans for a sequel to "Top Gun" will have Tom Cruise grappling with a new kind of aerial warfare, one that is more reliant on drones, the veteran producer said during an interview this week with Bloomberg TV's Jon Erlichman.

"Technology has changed, obviously, since we made the first one," Bruckheimer said. "So I think we're going to take advantage of what the world is like today with the drones really taking over in a lot of our wars."...

OK, I'd love to see a sequel to TOP GUN (a great movie IMHO), but taking the flying (with pilots inside airplanes with something to lose!) out and you've lost me. What was it about the original TOP GUN that if went missing from a sequel would kill it for you?
