Film fans are rejoicing after news emerged that a sequel to Top Gun is in the works.
The original film made a megastar out of Tom Cruise, and while it has been years since the original, and Cruise’s career has gone from strength to strength, making him a blockbuster star, he is reportedly set to star in the follow up film.
His original character, Maverick will be the main focus of the sequel, and despite the character being 30 odd years older, it seems there is still a place for him on the big screen.
CEO of Skydance, Dave Ellison claimed:
There is an amazing role for Maverick in the movie, and there is no Top Gun without Maverick, and it is going to be Maverick playing Maverick
The original film cost $15 million to make back in 1986 and raked in an estimated $353,816,701 worldwide – with expectations for the follow up just as high.
While Cruise is set to return, there is no word on love interest Kelly McGillis, but we can’t imagine she would want to turn a chance like this down.
