Jerry Bruckheimer hopes for a Lone Ranger franchise, Top Gun sequel

MUMBAI: The American film and television producer Jerry Bruckheimer claimed his 30 year old endeavour to make a sequel of the successful Tom Cruise starrer Top Gun at the Produced By conference. The original 1986 movie directed by the late Tony Scott saw Tom Cruise as ‘Maverick‘ the rebel fighter jet pilot. Bruckheimer stated that the sequel would be done with Tom (Cruise) off course, who is still known as ‘Maverick‘ by many fans, while Paramount are still interested in the project too.


Commenting on his latest venture, Lone Ranger with the versatile star Jonny Depp, Bruckheimer said that he hopes Lone Ranger becomes a franchise with Depp and Armie Hammer, although nothing concrete has been decided yet. Leaving the ball to the audience he added, "If the audience likes the movie then Disney will come to me and we‘ll make another or it will be a one-off."


Revealing about the star Jonny Depp who is along with Bruckheimer, prepping a fifth installment of Pirates of the Caribbean for the studio, said that "Jonny often travels with his Captain Jack Sparrow costume and visits children‘s hospitals unannounced. He knows he is a very fortunate person and he wants to give back."


With Lone Ranger slated to release on July 4, Bruckheimer acknowledged the summer packed competition saying, "It‘s very hard this summer. You have to hold your seats; it‘s not the number of theatres but the number of seats. Warner Bros‘ Man of Steel is coming out this week and then next week another blockbuster will come out, if there is another blockbuster, and Superman will move to small theatres and someone else will get their seats," He noted that Warner Bros and Legendary‘s Pacific Rim is coming out the week after Lone Ranger and that worries him.


In the same context, Bruckheimer said Sunday that a lot of movies coming out at the same time can be a good thing. "I root for my competition to be successful because it increases the audience‘s appetite for watching movies," he added, noting that, in today‘s environment of so much good TV and other platforms, movies have to work hard to get people out of their homes.
