Jerry Bruckheimer has finalized a new three-year first-look deal with Paramount Pictures, with the sequels Top Gun 2 and Beverly Hills Cop 4 among the first projects he plans on getting off the ground. We reported in September that the producer is not renewing his deal with Disney, which expires next year. His deal with Paramount begins in April 2014.
Top Gun 2 has been in development for quite some time, but we haven't heard anything about the sequel since director Tony Scott committed suicide last August. Tom Cruise is attached to star, reprising his role as Pete "Maverick" Mitchell from the original Top Gun. Peter Craig (The Town) signed on to write the script last March, but it isn't known if he is still involved.
