With Top Gun 2 – a.k.a. Top Gun: Maverick – finally looking like it’s set to become a reality, with talk of production taking place next year, Tom Cruise has spent much of the promotional campaign for The Mummy talking about the sequel to the 1986 cult classic. And, during an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the star has revealed that the sequel will retain many of the original’s hallmarks, and even perhaps another volleyball scene!
“There’s gonna be jets – very fast jets. There’s gonna be an aircraft carrier, maybe two. And a wide range of jets. It’s gonna have music… We have a soundtrack. There’s gonna be actors in it. [And a] motorcycle – definitely [a] motorcycle. [There] may be a volleyball scene. Maybe. We’ll see. I have not told anyone in the world as much as I’ve just told you right now.”
If rumours are to be believed, Oblivion director Joseph Kosinski is front runner to helm Top Gun: Maverick, which will reportedly explore the dying jet fighter program and the rise of drone technology.
