The superstar actor/director Tom Cruise, with his huge success in the film department, started his journey with a military thriller ‘Top Gun‘ which was a really great success for his career. The movie, produced in 1986, had its sequel in development since 2000, but for some reasons it was not able to be done, and now, in 2015, producers have confirmed that we’ll finally be getting a sequel for this amazing movie.
Skydance CEO David Ellison confirmed a sequel script as well as the return of Cruise at a press junket in Berlin. “Justin Marks is writing the screenplay right now,” Ellison confirmed. “He has a phenomenal take to really update that world for what fighter pilots in the Navy has turned into today.”
Rather than being a repeat of the original, the sequel will focus on the modern day situations in he military field. Its not been confirmed whether Kelly McGills would be starring alongside Tom Cruise.
“It is very much a world we live in today where it’s drone technology and fifth generation fighters … It’s really exploring the end of an era of dog fighting and fighter pilots and what that culture is today.” Ellison added.
The “Top Gun” sequel has been in the works for a long time. Last year, it was announced Tom Cruise would reprise his role as Maverick. Producer Jerry Bruckheimer revealed the late “Top Gun” director Tony Scott was the one who came up with the premise.
“There is an amazing role for Maverick in the movie, and there is no Top Gun without Maverick, and it is going to be Maverick playing Maverick.” Ellison told The Daily Mail.
