The most anticipated movie of all time Top Gun is finally in the works, In an interview with The Huffington Post last week, Bruckheimer expressed how determined he is to make a follow-up to the 1986 classic, and hinted at what themes the movie will explore.
In the sequel, Tom Cruise will reprise his role as Pete “Maverick” Mitchell, and face off against drones to prove just how essential fighter pilot he is ( Well Mr.Cruise might not be cruising in this age, No offense.)
During the interview on HuffPost Live, Bruckheimer said he thinks “we’re getting closer and closer” to making the sequel a reality.
Talk about the movie has been bubbling for years, especially after Paramount tapped Bruckheimer and director Tony Scott to return for another outing in 2010. The Pirates of the Caribbean producer said that Scott had figured out a way to tell the story right but his suicide in 2012 almost scuttled the project.
“The concept is, basically, are the pilots obsolete because of drones,” said Bruckheimer. “Cruise is going to show them that they’re not obsolete. They’re here to stay.”
There is no signing from Tom Cruise or any director involved with the project it is hard to say when it will become a reality but an announcement of production in works is a good sign indeed.
