Tom Cruise working on Top Gun sequel

14 Dec 2011
It may have been a quarter of a century since the original, but Tom Cruise has confirmed that a sequel for hit movie Top Gun is finally in the works. While speaking to MTV News on the promotional circuit for his brand new Mission: Impossible: Ghost Protocol, Cruise decided it was time to fess up to Top Gun 2 plans.

"We're working on it.We never thought that we would do it again. Then they started to come to us with these ideas and I thought 'Wow, that would be what we could do now'.I hope we can figure this out, to do it again.We all want to make a film that is in the same kind of tone as the other one and shoot it in the same way as we shot Top Gun."the star said.

There have been whispers mounting about a sequel for the best part of a year now, however this is the first concrete signal that something is on the way. Given the success of their previous partnerships, including the original Top Gun and race flick Days of Thunder, Cruise has confirmed that he would like director Jerry Bruckheimer to be involved in the project.

Those of you who may not be able to wait the few years it will likely take for the sequel can ensure you get your Top Gun fix when the original gets a rerelease in glorious 3D next summer!
