It has been reported that The Town screenwriter Peter Craig has been brought in by Paramount to work on a script for a sequel to the 1986 movie Top Gun. It is a busy time for Peter Craig, as he is also the guy in charge of writing Bad Boys 3 and with Tom Cruise and Jerry Bruckheimer seeming to be interested in returning for Top Gun 2, it could be an interesting few years for Peter.
Tom Cruise previously admitted that he would love to return to the role of Maverick, saying, “I hope we can figure this out to go do it again. 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. We’re working on it”
Meanwhile, Tony Scott revealed the general idea around Top Gun 2. He added, “These kids play war games in a trailer in Fallon, Nevada and if we ever went to war or were in the Middle East or the Far East or wherever it is, these guys can actually fly drones. They are unmanned aircraft. They operate them and then they party all night.” Let’s hope Peter Craig can get a good script together and we can have Top Gun 2 on the big screen sooner rather than later.
