What if they made a 2010 version of TOP GUN?

Hay all

As i am currently toiling away building Mavericks F14 and the MiG 28 from the movie TOP GUN for the TV and Movie campaign, it got me to thinking? 'WHAT IF' they made a 2010 version? Who would play the main characters? What jets would they use instead of the F14 and F5 (MiG28)?

What do you think??

Well, the jets would be pretty much limited to F/A18 variants, so the aggressors and students would be flying more or less the same bird with different "plumage." Maybe some F-16's as additional aggressors to keep the audience engaged and identifying something different for the latter day Tom Cruise to fly. The "MiG's" could just as easily be real MiG's and Sukkhois, there are so many available. Alternatively, with the state of CG today, there'd be no need to have "real" aircraft standing in for MiG's. Look at the movie Stealth...the star was a plane that existed only as a mock up and in computers.
As for cast,

Well... first of all Tom Cruise would fly a spaceship... sorry...
And now seriously: I don't think I'd like to see a remake of this movie... It has great emotional load for me - the music, F-14s... all this stuff was part of my childhood.
