A sequel to the 1986 original which looks at Maverick in his later years.
It's been awhile since we've heard about any movement on Top Gun 2. But with Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation opening next weekend, Tom Cruise is back on the press circuit, and sure enough, the subject came up. The actor had some interesting things to say about the potential sequel that will make fans very happy. Speaking with Extra, he assures eager audiences worldwide that the movie will not be filled with CGI fighter jets.
Top Gun 2 was starting to move full steam ahead back in 2012, and would have probably been in theaters last year, had not a terrible tragedy befallen the project. Original Top Gun director Tony Scott was set to return, and in the few interviews he gave about the sequel, seemed genuinely excited about it. The director took his own life in August of 2012, though. He jumped off the Vincent Thomas Bridge in the San Pedro port district of Los Angeles, California. Production on Top Gun 2 was halted at the time of his suicide. And no new director has ever been announced.Read More
Nine months after we reported the highly-anticipated sequel Top Gun 2 is back in development at Paramount Pictures, the studio has brought on Justin Marks (The Jungle Book) to write the screenplay.
Peter Craig (The Town) signed on to write the script back in March 2012, but that was when original Top Gun director Tony Scott was still attached to the project, before his tragic suicide later that year. We reported in November 2012 that the sequel was in limbo following his death, before Paramount revived the project after producer Jerry Bruckheimer signed a first look deal with the studio.Read More

The Hollywood community was rocked in August when famed director Tony Scott committed suicide at the age of 68. The filmmaker's shocking death has halted plans for Top Gun 2, and has Paramount executives questioning whether or not they should release a 3D-converted version of the original Top Gun in theaters.
We first reported on the Top Gun 3D conversion last September, which Paramount had originally hoped to use to get fans excited for the impending sequel. Now that Top Gun 2 isn't happening, the studio doesn't want to seem insensitive or exploitative by releasing Top Gun in 3D. Insiders claim that Tony Scott responded positively to Top Gun's 3D conversion in the weeks leading up to his death.Read More
