Jerry Bruckheimer: Top Gun cast members vomited flying planes – Film News |


Jerry Bruckheimer has revealed that several ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ actors vomited during flight scenes.

The producer revealed that Tom Cruise and his co-star Monica Barbaro were the only ones who avoided throwing up during the flight sequence – even though Cruise put the cast through their paces with a rigorous training regimen.

Jerry told Total Film magazine, “When you see the expressions on their faces, they don’t act.

“When you see the plane going straight up, they’re going straight. When you see the plane upside down, they’re upside down. You can just imagine the physical exertion each actor had to go through.

“A lot of them threw up on planes again. Except for Monica – she’s the only one who can deal with g-forces better than the other actors. Of course, Tom too.”

Bruckheimer explained how he worked closely with Cruise and director Joseph Kosinski on an extensive casting search, as many potential stars were put off by the idea of ​​blowing away.

The 78-year-old producer recalled, “A lot of actors said, ‘No, thank you. I’m going to do it on a gimbal plane. Because it’s obviously dangerous. So we had the best of the group.”

Cruise reprises his role as Pete “Maverick” Mitchell more than three decades after the original film, and Bruckheimer is impressed with the star’s dedication to his craft and his desire to be involved in all aspects of the project.

Jerry said, “He’s learned over the past 35 years from the best directors, writers and actors – and he’s a sponge and he soaks it all up. We’ve benefited from ‘Top Gun’ from all that knowledge.”

The film will finally hit theaters after a number of delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic and Bruckheimer can’t wait for audiences to see the pic on the big screen.

He said, “It’s really exciting that we’ve gotten to a place where theaters are now going to be dealing with people and being inside and enjoying this movie the way we want them to enjoy it.”
