Top Gun to get a sequel
Hollywood superstar confirms the second part is 'definitely happening'
Tom Cruise has confirmed that a sequel to the 1986 classic Top Gun is “definitely happening.” When asked if he would consider working on Top Gun 2, the actor answered in the affirmative, and announced that he might start filming for the sequel as early as next year.
Top Gun producer Jerry Bruckheimer had teased a sequel last year, when he posted a picture of him with Cruise on his Twitter account and wrote, “Just got back from a weekend in New Orleans to see my old friend Tom Cruise and discuss a little Top Gun 2”.
The original movie was based on Cruise’s character Pilot Maverick, a student of the Top Gun Naval Fighter Weapons School, whose reckless attitude and cocky demeanour puts him at odds with the other pilots. The movie also starred Anthony Edwards, Kelly McGillis, Val Kilmer, Tom Kazansky and Meg Ryan.
