The 54-year-old actor said talks on the follow-up of the Top Gun have come to an end, and he is sure he will soon get into the cinema and start filming. The announcement made it in the Australian television “Sunrise” morning news broadcast, saying shooting would probably start early next year and stressing that “it will definitely happen.”
The original film, directed by Tony Scott, talks about the love affair between a reckless pilot and his trainer.
Maverick (Tom Cruise) is a fearless pilot who uses his instinct and is always willing to violate all rules. When the opportunity is given to attend the Navy elected pilot school, Maverick goes determined to win the title of the best graduate in his class.
Cruz, in previous interviews, has said that discussions about the film are in progress, and that there are strong indications of this, but it has never been so clear. But one of the producers of the first film, Jerry Brookheimer, in his interviews had suggested that there would be continuity of the Top Gun.
Indeed, on May 16th, the 31st anniversary of the release of the film, he uploaded his photo to Twitter with Tom Cruise. The song “Take My Breath Away,” in the music of Giorgio Moroner and Tom Witlock with the Berlin band, won the Academy Award for best original song and became famous.
