Tom Cruise confirmed to MTV that he is involved in Top Gun 2 saying "We're working on it.".
Christopher McQuarrie was previously hired to write the script for the sequel, but it doesn't sound like he will have time. "I don't think Chris [McQuarrie] is going to write it. Chris is directing 'One Shot' right now, which I'm acting in. We've got to go back in January and finish it," he said.
About reuniting with director Tony Scott and producer Jerry Bruckheimer for the possible sequel, Cruise said that "Tony and I and Jerry, 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 added: "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 as we shot 'Top Gun.'"
