Alden Ehrenreich Cast as the Young Han Solo for the 2018 "Star Wars" Anthology Film
If you thought the Top Gun franchise’s goose was cooked, you were wrong. Paramount Pictures is prepping a sequel to the 1986 aviation flick with Tom Cruise expected to return as Maverick, albeit in a smaller role.
Vulture reports that offers have been made to producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Tony Scott for the Top Gun sequel, with The Usual Suspects screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie taking a crack at the script. Cruise, a friend of McQuarrie’s, has apparently agreed to take on a smaller role in the sequel, as long as it’s “not too ‘obvious’ a part” — as in, don’t expect Maverick to become a grizzled old flight instructor.
Hey, as long as Maverick is still singing awful impromptu love songs in a bar packed with air force officers, I’m there!
