    The previews for this look great. The visuals and music stunning. I’m in.

    I was on a conference call with an individual involved in the development of the script. He told the story about how the producers screwed up dealing with the Navy JSF community that they didn't want much to do with them. They ended up having to make it with F-18's. The script had some problems and had to be rewritten several times. At one point, they pitch the idea of it being a bro-mance movie about Maverick and Ice Man ala Lethal Weapon with no major love interest for Maverick. Cruise did not like that idea, because he always has to have a love interest in his movies, and suggested he should be dating on of the female Lt's in the squadron. The writers had to explain to him that an 0-6 dating an 0-3 would be extremely creepy and completely unacceptable in the Me Too era. They went back and re-wrote the script and supposedly brought back someone that was mentioned in the first movie.

    Based on the previews, it looks like they are doing a lot of close air support which is very cool for JTAC's and FACs to see.

    I hear Meg Ryan has been out of work - they could have brought her back and had her and Tom shacked up as a couple - with him looking out for her and Goose's kid Bradley.
