According to What’s Playing, “Risky Business 2”, a sequel to Tom Cruise’s hit 1983 movie, may actually be percolating around Hollywood, especially in light of Cruise returning to a couple of his former roles, including that of Maverick in a “Top Gun” sequel. So feel free to do a happy dance, boys. If, you know, you really liked the first movie and have been anxiously awaiting a sequel for the last, uh, 27 years or so.
So where did the word come from? Apparently from someone who was in the first movie, who claims a “scriptment” (half script, half treatment, one presumes) for a sequel is floating out there, which would reunite Joel Goodsen (Cruise’s character), now a happily married man, with his prostitute girlfriend Lana (Rebecca DeMornay). Hilarity, as they say, ensue.
Honestly, I don’t see this actually happening. Has anyone ever said: “Gee, I wish there was a ‘Risky Business 2’?” Probably not.
Les Grossman might be interested, though…
