Top Gun 2 has been in the works for an extended period of time, and because of this, the buzz has dwindled – until now. In a Terminator Genisys press event in Berlin, CEO of Skydance, David Ellison made comments about the progression of the film. He revealed that Justin Marks (Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li) is currently writing the screenplay, and the film will feature modern pilot warfare and today’s culture, in the difference from the original film released in 1986.
“There is no ‘Top Gun’ without Maverick” Ellison stated, revealing that Tom Cruise will reprise his role as the cocky young pilot from the original movie. How he reprises this role, nearly thirty years since Top Gun’s release, will remain a mystery for now. Ellison also revealed that the film will be released in 3D and IMAX, yet still no talk of a rough release estimate.
