According to sources, movie bosses are considering bringing Tom Cruise back for a sequel to his 1986 hit Top Gun.
The original film’s producer, Jerry Bruckheimer, has confirmed he’s been approached with plans to resurrect Cruise’s character, Lieutenant Pete ‘Maverick’ Mitchell, for a follow-up to the naval aviation drama. Bruckheimer admits movie executives have “kicked around some ideas” but they are still a long way from giving the project the green light.
He tells MTV.com, “We were recently approached again to start talking about it but, you know, nothing yet. We kicked around some ideas because the aviation community has completely changed since we made the movie a long time ago. So we have to find a way in and how to incorporate the Maverick character into it.”
Top Gun is the latest in a long line of popular movies which are rumored to be heading back to the big screen, including Jurassic Park and Ghostbusters.
