Update – Director Joseph Kosinski has taken over the director’s seat following Tony Scott’s suicide.
Sounds like Paramount and producer Jerry Bruckheimer still want to develop a sequel to Top Gun. They hired a new screenwriter: Peter Craig, the chief screenwriter on The Town, is now in charge of the script.
Top Gun 2 is likely take into account the latest technologies used by the Air force, so I guess we may expect armchair pilots guiding drones rather than jet-fighter pilots.
Actor Tom Cruise who played the role of Maverick in the first film said he’d glad to show up in Top Gun 2, maybe for a cameo, but he won’t play the lead role.
