"I'd like to get back in those jets"
Speaking to Access Hollywood, Tom Cruise has revealed that their still is ongoing plans to bring a Top Gun sequel to the screen!
Currently on his press tour, Tom was quizzed about 'Top Gun 2' at the “Edge of Tomorrow” NYC premiere. Here's what he had to say;
“Jerry [Bruckheimer] and I, we’re working on it, if we can figure it out it’ll be a lot of fun, I’d like to get back in those jets if we could figure the story out,”
Jerry Bruckheimer, speaking to the huffington post, elaborated on the difficulty he and others went through in the attempts to craft a sequel. As Bruckheimer noted, it was Tony Scott, the film's original director, who was able to crack the story before his death in 2012.
"We've been trying to get that movie made for 30 years, and I think we're getting closer and closer, Don [Simpson] and I tried to develop something, we didn't succeed. [Tom] Cruise took over, and he tried to develop something, and he didn't succeed. Now we're back at it."
He also revealed details about the plot, so read no further if you would like to avoid spoilers for the films plot!
"The concept is, basically, are the pilots obsolete because of drones. Cruise is going to show them that they're not obsolete. They're here to stay, it's just getting to the starting place. Fortunately for Tom, he's very busy, so you have to find a slot he can fit into and get a budget that Paramount feels they can make the picture."
