“Top Gun 2” In Development
During a press junket for Terminator: Genysis in Berlin, David Ellison CEO of Skydance, which is producing that movie, hinted at Top Gun 2.
Since the iconic film’s release back in 1986, there have been many rumours of a sequel, but Ellison finally confirmed that such a prospect is now actually in development.
The storyline , which is currently being written by Justin Marks, will apparently focus on the US Navy’s role in the 21st century – namely fifth generation fighters and drone technology. Ellison also promised that Tom Cruise would be reprising his role as Maverick, the original film’s star fighter pilot.
