Top Gun 2 Is Happening!

News broke over the weekend that Top Gun 2 is officially happening and to top it off, Tom Cruise may be reprising his role as Maverick!

On Saturday, Skydance CEO David Ellison said “Justin Marks is writing the screenplay right now…He has a phenomenal take to really update that world for what fighter pilots in the Navy has turned into today.”

He continued: “It is very much a world we live in today where it’s drone technology and fifth generation fighters. It’s really exploring the end of an era of dogfighting and fighter pilots and what that culture is today.”

Ellison chose to break the news during a Terminator Genisys press junket in Berlin.  At the junket, he even hinted at Cruise’s huge return. “There is an amazing role for Maverick in the movie, and there is no Top Gun without Maverick,” he said. “And it is going to be Maverick playing Maverick.”

Cruise, now 51, starred in the Tony Scott-directed film about a Navy fighter in 1986. The movie is responsible for launching the actor’s career and also starred Val Kilmer (Iceman), Kelly McGillis (Charlie), Anthony Edwards (Goose), and Tom Skerritt (Viper).

Crystal Pepsi Making A Comeback?!

“Right now, hey
It’s your tomorrow
Right now,
C’mon, it’s everything”

These lyrics to Van Halen’s “Right Now” remind me of only one thing – Crystal Pepsi. If you were around in the 90’s you most likely remember the commercial.  You either loved or hated the clear soda and unfortunately it was short lived.  BUT if you loved the drink, you are in luck.  Rumor has it’s coming back!

For a drink that met it’s demise in the 90’s, it has maintained quite the loyal fanbase.  Maybe the biggest fan of them all is Kevin Strahle, aka L.A. Beast.  He’s been rallying for the return of Crystal Pepsi for a very long time and this week they sent him a letter, which he posted on Twitter.  You can read the full letter here but the most important part was this sentence: “We definitely hear you and all your followers and we think you’ll all be happy with what’s in store.”

PepsiCo has confirmed the letter is real and their representative wouldn’t give any other details other than “We think Crystal Pepsi fans are going to be happy with what we have planned.”
