Tom Cruise to make Top Gun II?

Get excited: Tom Cruise in talks to star in Top Gun II

It seems Tom Cruise is jumping on the Eighties-remake bandwagon – and is reprising his beloved role as Maverick for a star turn in Top Gun II.

Following the success of Rocky, Rambo and Indiana Jones sequels, movie bosses are keen to create the mega-hit 1986 movie, which sky-rocketed Tom to worldwide success and grossed over $350 million at the box office.

Tom is in talks with studio bosses to reprise his role as the cocky Lt. Pete ‘Maverick’ Mitchell – who fell in love with his flight instructor Charlie Blackwood, played by Kelly McGillis – in a hugely-anticipated follow up.

One insider tells The Sun: ‘The idea is Maverick is at the Top Gun school as an instructor – and this time it is he who has to deal with a cocky new female pilot.’

If plans for the remake go ahead, it’s sure to be another box office smash-hit – and we, for one, can’t wait!
