Hey movie fans, Tatiana Carrier here with news on the sequel to 1986's Top Gun. The film was a worldwide hit, bringing in $345M and launched star Tom Cruise's career into the stratosphere. Cruise revealed back in December that he would be reuniting with the film's director, Tony Scott and producer Jerry Bruckheimer on a sequel saying, "We never thought that we would do it again. Then they started to come to us with these ideas of where it is now. I thought, 'Wow, that would be ... what we could do now...If we can find a story that we all want to do, we all want to make a film that is in the same kind of tone as the other one and shoot it in the same way as we shot 'Top Gun.'"
Since then, not much on the sequel has been revealed. Until now. Paramount Pictures has confirmed that Peter Craig has been tapped to write the script for the sequel. Craig is best known for writing the 2010 hit The Town starring Ben Affleck and Jeremy Renner. With the hiring of Craig, it's clear that the sequel has become a priority for the studio. In addition to a potential sequel, it was announced back in September that a 3D conversion of the original film would be released sometime this year. No release date has been set, but producer Jerry Bruckheimer recently tweeted out that he, Cruise and director Scott had screened a version of the 3D film, so we're expecting a release date for the film to be announced soon.
