Paramount Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer have today signed a three-year first-look deal, Deadline reports. Among the projects now being targeted for production are a sequel to the 1986 Tony Scott hit Top Gun.
The Top Gun followup has been in the works for some time with Tom Cruise interested in reprising his role as United States Naval Aviator Lieutenant Pete “Maverick” Mitchell. Scott was interested in returning to the director’s chair himself prior to his tragic passing last year.
Stay tuned for more.
