On the heels of Tony Scott's shocking suicide, plans for a Top Gun sequel, no matter how half-baked they were, appear to have been abandoned. Scott was spearheading the project, and failing his involvement, Paramount has killed the project, leaving Iceman, Slider, Maverick, Ghost of Goose, Jester, Merlin, Charlie, Sundown, and Hollywood all homoerotic with no place to go.

The studio is left with plans for a 3D re-release of the film, but even those plans are up in the air, as they feel public backlash in light of Tony Scott's death could put the studio in a bad light.

That's probably just Paramount being hypersensitive, but right or wrong, those are the studio's feelings, and we have to respect them.
