It's official! Top Gun 2 is definitely in the works, and a screenwriter has just signed on the dotted line to pen the project. So, now that it's been given the green light, the obviously next question is this: Will Tom Cruise reprise his role as Maverick?
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Tom has previously mentioned he would like to make a sequel to the 1986 hit. That said, it hasn't been announced yet if he's on board with the sequel now that it's actually happening.
Peter Craig, the same scribe who wrote The Town, starring Ben Affleck, has signed on to write Top Gun 2. He also rewrote the script for Horse Soldiers, a movie about soldiers who battled on horseback against the Taliban after 9/11.
Stay tuned for casting news as the sequel takes shape. Or rather, takes flight!
