Kick the tires, and light the fires! It appears Tom Cruise's character Maverick's need for speed will be fulfilled once again in Top Gun 2.
There were talks of a sequel to the incredible 1986 film around 2010. Tom Cruise was attached to the project, but not much more was known. In 2012, he and Top Gun director Tony Scott scouted locations for the sequel. In August of that year, Scott died at age 68.
Cruise has not commented about Top Gun 2. It is unclear if fellow past co-stars such as Val Kilmer or Kelly McGillis, who played Cruise's love interest, will reprise their roles. In 2014, co-producer Jerry Bruckheimer talked about the movie and how it will incorporate more advanced military aircraft, so it is likely they will be way more up to date with this movie and it won't be a direct continuation.
Look forward to more information on the movie soon.
