Jerry Bruckheimer, producer of the 80s mega-hit Top Gun, which made Tom Cruise into a huge movie star, tweeted this yesterday, and fans and media are getting hyped:(These men are 53 and 72, fyi)
While this isn't a confirmation of the film actually being done, it seems between this and Val Kilmer's excitement
several months ago, this is getting a bit closer to reality. The project has been in development for nearly thirty years, and Cruise has said he needs to see a script and there has to be NO CGI
Early word of TG2 has Maverick training a female
top gun, hopefully they keep that narrative.
In less news from 1988, frequent Cruise-collaborator Christopher McQuarrie, writer of the latest Mission Impossible and Edge of Tomorrow, tweeted this cryptic response to someone inquiring about a sequel to EoT:
Way back during Rogue Nation promo, McQuarrie said Tom Cruise said he had an idea for the sequel for Edge of Tomorrow, and recently, Emily Blunt has stated she HAS seen the spec for the film. Obviously, nothing's happening until Cruise gets his other films out and Blunt gets her films- and her new baby- out, or McQuarrie is just being vague about how he's not writing the script, so who knows.

I personally am sick of the reboots, remakes, and sequels craze but I guess if anyone can make it entertaining, it's Tom Cruise. Let's talk these two films!
