Jerry Bruckheimer Says 'Top Gun 2' with Tom Cruise Still Possible

June 10, 2013

Top Gun

Last fall, the tragic death of director and producer Tony Scott shook Hollywood to the core. In addition to leaving behind a legacy of great films and influences on cinema, Scott also left behind some gestating projects. Perhaps the most high profile of which is the gestating Top Gun sequel with Tom Cruise still attached. Shortly after Scott's death, Paramount Pictures wasn't even sure of how to handle their 3D re-release of the original Top Gun, and plans for the sequel were in limbo. But at the Produced By conference this past weekend, Deadline reports that producer Jerry Bruckheimer still wants to make it.

Bruckheimer says, "For 30 years we’ve been trying to make a sequel and we’re not going to stop. We still want to do it with Tom [Cruise] and Paramount are still interested in making it." The producer also made sure to reiterate the enthusiasm Cruise has for the project saying, "What Tom tells me is that no matter where he goes in the world, people refer to him as Maverick. It’s something he is excited about so as long as he keeps his enthusiasm hopefully we’ll get it made." If anyone can get a project made, it's Tom Cruise (unless it's At the Mountains of Madness), so Top Gun fans should keep their fingers crossed.

You had to bring up Mountains didn't you? Hate you.

No Thanks, If they MUST they should have Cruise in the role Tom Skerritt. Cruise is to old to be a Top Gun fighter Pilot plane and simple.

I think that was the plan mentioned some time ago.

Well very good then. Maybe this could be fun

They're going to have him teaching a group of younger recruits at Top Gun, but the twist is that they're working with drones rather than actual pilots.

Seems logical but I feel that would be far less exciting than real pilots in real planes. Will have to wait and see.

Brian Sleider on Jun 10, 2013


I agree, but I'm sure that's the exact revelation all the pilots would have by the end of the film.

Cruise was born in 62 so too old to even portray a squadron CO

I loved the movie with him ! That's when I fell in love with him& found out his family was from Kentucky

Maryann Carter on Jun 10, 2013


Leave it be please. Without Tony Scott the film would not work. Tony was a great director and no one can replace him.

No one can replace Tony Scott
