Paramount Confirms That The ‘Top Gun’ Sequel Is On The Way


Back in December we learned that Tom Cruise has expressed interest in returning to the role of Maverick in a rumored sequel to Top Gun. Today, we are hearing from Paramount Studios that Top Gun 2 is very likely going to become a reality. Speaking about the movies that will be coming from the studio in the next few years, Adam Goodman confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that plans are definitely in the works for a Top Gun sequel. Do you feel the need, the need for speed again? Get ready, ‘cuz you’re gonna get another Top Gun fix soon.

When asked about the possibility of another Mission: Impossible film, Goodman replied: “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. We’ve hired Peter Craig to write the script.”

In the interview, the Top Gun sequel question wasn’t even asked … Goodman offered that information himself out of the blue. This tells me that by going on the record, he wants to put the word out there that the Top Gun sequel is on the way. I honestly don’t know how I feel about this. As a big fan of 80s nostalgia, I think I *may* enjoy a sequel. But it’ll have to be done properly. I know Tom Cruise is no fool … he will not appear in a film that he doesn’t believe will be a success. I guess we’ll have to learn more as plans move forward but … it looks like Top Gun 2 is a serious go. Are you excited … or scared?

    i saw “the innkeepers” the other day… poor kelly mcgillis, time has not been kind

    she can play the grandmother of the new character

  • I actually don’t believe that any Top Gun movie could be made today. It is so a part of the 80’s that if a sequel were to ever have been made it should have been made in the 80’s or VERY early 90’s (90 or 91 at BEST). Tom Cruise looks alright for the part now if they MUST do one but I agree that Kelly McGillis looks horrendous as compared to what she looked like in 86. Someone else would have to play that role now. Overall I say that this movie should never see the light of day.

    After reading these comments I had to google Kelly McGillis… I did the “kevin” face from home alone.. what the hell happened to her? Was she hooked on the bad stuff at some point?

      i had to google too…and im pretty sure i made the same face.

  • kat :)

    Yeah, how are they going to make a sequel now? Is it going to be them 30 years later??? Or with a whole new group?

  • c

    The whole cast is way to old to do this again

  • Rolltideguy77

    Well Tom has had enough plastic surgery to keep him looking 30 forever while Kelly came out of the closet as a lesbian.

      Don’t forget the fact that Val Kilmer is fat as a house now. Have you seen him lately? Yikes.

    • Vicky

      What does her being a lesbian have to do with anything? There are some super hot lesbians out there…

  • Vicky

    They could just have Tom come back as an instructor to a new crop of pilots and leave the others out of it. Val Could have a cameo or something, but they would probably have to get someone else to play Kelly’s role if they were going to have that character take part in the movie.
