Paramount Pictures has hired screenwriters Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz (Thor, X-Men: First Class) to write Top Gun 2, which Jerry Bruckheimer is producing.

No plot details have been officially released yet, but director Tony Scott indicated last year that the sequel will revolve around a group of young Air Force pilots, who fly remote-controlled drone planes from a command center. The story was inspired by a chance meeting the director had with one of these young pilots on a commercial flight.

There is still no word if Tom Cruise or Val Kilmer will reprise their roles as Maverick and Iceman. It isn't known when production will begin on Top Gun 2, but it seems to be moving in the right direction.
