Transformers 4 has brought on writer Ehren Kruger, Noah adds Saoirse Ronan, and Tom Cruise is close to signing for Top Gun 2.
The writer will write the film with Jerry Bruckheimer Films and Skydance Productions.
The actor says making another movie with director Tony Scott is what intrigued him about returning for a sequel to the 1986 aerial classic.
The X-Men: First Class duo are in talks to pen the script for Jerry Bruckheimer's aerial sequel.
The director didn't confirm if Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer will return as Maverick and Iceman.
Screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie sent out an update about his sequel that squashes rumors Maverick will only be making a cameo.
