Will Tom Cruise Reprise his ‘Top Gun’ Role?
Tom Cruise may be heading into the Danger Zone again.
Rumor has it that Cruise will reprise his wildly-talked about role as Maverick in Top Gun.
Skydance CEO David Ellison recently shared that preparations are underway for the new project.
He said, “Justin Marks is writing the screenplay right now. He has a phenomenal take to really update that world for what fighter pilots in the Navy has turned into today. It is very much a world we live in today where it’s drone technology and fifth generation fighters … It’s really exploring the end of an era of dogfighting and fighter pilots and what that culture is today. There is an amazing role for Maverick in the movie, and there is no Top Gun without Maverick, and it is going to be Maverick playing Maverick.”
