Tom Cruise And Top Gun 2 In Flight

Tom Cruise will star in a much anticipated sequel for Top Gun next year. Top Gun 2 is in the works and will apparently be a reality. The news of the sequel comes directly from the biggest star of the original.

 

Original producer Jerry Bruckheimer tweeted a subtle hint with Cruise concerning the sequel back in January. Cruise took it one step further by confirming the existence of the movie on the Australian morning show Sunrise.

Cruise said the movie is definitely “happening.”

 

That means fans of the original flick will get to see a sequel three decades after. Top Gun was released in 1986. It starred Cruise, Kelly McGillis, Anthony Edwards and Val Kilmer. The original movie propelled Cruise into bigger stardom. His military haircut and trademark sunglasses were staples of the movie.

 

Cruise plays renegade pilot Pete Mitchell. Mitchell learns about flying and love during his training with the United States Navy. His nickname “Maverick” stood for his rebellious nature and courage to go against the system. His co-pilot and friend “Goose” was killed during the original film.

 

The original involved several iconic scenes worth watching. Cruise sings karaoke to McGillis to win his flight instructor over. The song is “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling.”

 

Cruise will next star in “The Mummy” on the big screen in June.
