Tom Cruise’s Top Gun Sequel Planned Soon

Tom Cruise in Top GunTom Cruise is likely to film a Top Gun sequel before Mission: Impossible 5.

The iconic actor is reportedly close to signing a deal to appear in a follow-up to the 1986 movie about an elite flying school for fighter pilots with Paramount, and the studio's president Adam Goodman has confirmed wheels are in motion to create the film.

"We'll likely make a Top Gun sequel with Tom Cruise before the next Mission: Impossible. Jerry Bruckheimer will produce with Tony Scott returning to direct. All parties are moving ahead. We've hired Peter Craig to write the script," he told The Hollywood Reporter.

Speaking about the film previously, Tom confirmed it would have a similar "tone" to the first installment, but would not give away any details about the storyline: "We're working on it. I hope we can figure this out to go do it again. If we can find a story that we all want to do, we all want to make a film that is in the same kind of tone as the other one and shoot it in the same way we shot Top Gun."

It appears Tom Cruise and director Tony Scott will be reteaming for another flyby in theaters.

Approximately 25 years after making Top Gun together, the two are expected to reunite for the film’s sequel – a movie that will feature Pete 'Maverick' Mitchell, Cruise’s character from the 1986 film.

Although it was unclear what role – if any – Tom would play in the Paramount production, screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects, Valkyrie) told Vulture the film could not exist without the Navy pilot.

This Week on HD DVD and Blu-ray: October 2, 2007

Evil Dead 2 posterThis Tuesday brings the release of some great titles, new and old.  As expected, the studios are rolling out some Halloween-inspired classics, filled with zombies, vampires and serial killers; though sadly, only Blu-ray supporters seem to be taking advantage of the upcoming holiday.

HD DVD studios chose instead to use this week to re-release a bunch of titles that were previously only available in those obnoxious HD DVD/DVD Combo discs.  You know, the $40 releases that were appealing to neither the HD owners nor the standard-definition owners?  Those of you who rightly refused to make such a silly purchase can now have some great HD titles for a lower price, thanks to Warner Home Video coming to its senses.  Any of the following films with an asterisk (*) in the title are the re-released versions.

Check out this Tuesday’s HD DVD and Blu-ray releases after the jump.
