Tom Cruise confirms 'Top Gun' sequel on the way

Tom Cruise confirms 'Top Gun' sequel on the way

It's been more than 25 years since we last saw Maverick, Goose, Ice Man and the rest of the "Top Gun" gang fly the friendly skies, and rumors have persisted about a possible sequel.

Now, star Tom Cruise has confirmed his interest, and revealed that he's met with producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Tony Scott about the possibility.

The ultra-patriotic '80s hit features Cruise as a hotshot pilot codenamed Maverick, as he makes his way through an elite flight school, where he must get over a tragic accident in order to become the best of the best. It also features a popular soundtrack, including the ubiquitous Berlin ballad "Take My Breath Away." The film earned over $350 million worldwide.

While promoting his latest action sequel, "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol," Cruise talked about the idea. "I said to Tony (Scott), I want to make another movie with him... Tony and I and Jerry (Bruckheimer), we never thought that we would do it again. Then they started to come to us with these ideas of where it is now. I thought, 'Wow, that would be... what we could do now,'" Cruise told MTV.

1. So is Cruise going to be the new Burt Reynolds?
It shouldn't be long now.

4. As long as it doesn't bring Kenny Loggins back into the mainstream, I can deal with it

5. Do they bring back Goose?
The first movie went downhill after they killed off Goose.

7. But they got revenge by killing some Libyans right after that. "Top Gun - Goose Protocol"
Or maybe Goose will come back as a sparkling vampire zombie.

8. Or, like, they bring back Goose....
and we learn on double super secret background, Goose flipped to the dark forces and was employed by Gaddafi for the last three decades.

Although, after reflecting (or not, as in vampire) I have to admit sparkling vampire zombie angle has merit.

9. Interesting concept. Cruise is way to old to be a fighter pilot now.
Maybe he'll be the carrier captain.
