Top Gun sequel is 'moving ahead'

Press Association26 April 2012

A Top Gun sequel is officially in development, with Tom Cruise set to star.

Paramount executive Adam Goodman told The Hollywood Reporter that the film was a priority and that Tom, who played daredevil pilot Maverick in the first movie, was close to signing the deal.

Asked about making another Mission: Impossible, he said: "We'll likely make a Top Gun sequel with Tom Cruise first.

"Jerry Bruckheimer would produce, with Tony Scott returning to direct. All parties are moving ahead."

Adam said that Peter Craig, who penned the screenplay for The Town, had been hired to write the script.

Last year, Tom, who shot into the spotlight after starring in the 1986 action drama, was quoted as saying he "really" wanted to work on another Top Gun film.

"I really want to work with them again, so it'll be fun, if we can figure it out it'll be fun," he said.
