27 July 2015 4:44 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Tom Cruise has flirted with sequels over the course of his career. He.s currently dancing around the possibility of Top Gun 2. And studios have tried to get him back in the saddle for follow-ups to his biggest hits. But so far, the only franchise Cruise has ever returned to, time after time, is the Mission: Impossible series, and I wanted to find out why. This past weekend, I was lucky enough to attend the world premiere of Christopher McQuarrie.s Mission: Impossible . Rogue Nation, and speak with Tom Cruise on the event.s red carpet. After pointing out that Ethan Hunt is the only character in his body of work that he has chosen to develop and return to, I asked Cruise if there was another character he had played in his past who he wants to continue playing, to see where their story goes. He told me: »

Tom Cruise Has a Very Specific 'Top Gun 2' Demand

27 July 2015 4:40 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"Top Gun 2," a sequel to Tom Cruise's 1986 hit, is now being written with what's been called "an amazing role" for Cruise as Maverick. Tommy boy is now 53, but he's still known for performing his own (extreme) stunts -- as in his new movie "Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation."

While in London for the premiere of "Rogue Nation," Cruise addressed the "Top Gun 2" talk with Reuters:

It would be fun. I would like to get back into those jets."

However, he does have a specific demand:

It would have to be practical. I don't want any CGI jets. I want to shoot it like how we shot the first one."

There's the Maverick we know and love!

Last month, Skydance CEO David Ellison talked to Collider about "Top Gun 2," and it sounds like he and Cruise may have already had that no-cgi conversation:

'Top Gun 2' Will Have Real Jets, No CGI Says Tom Cruise

24 July 2015 12:55 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's been awhile since we've heard about any movement on Top Gun 2. But with Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation opening next weekend, Tom Cruise is back on the press circuit, and sure enough, the subject came up. The actor had some interesting things to say about the potential sequel that will make fans very happy. Speaking with Extra, he assures eager audiences worldwide that the movie will not be filled with CGI fighter jets.

Tom Cruise is still very much interested in reprising his iconic role as Maverick in a sequel to the 1986 action drama Top Gun. It certainly changed the landscape of summer movies, for both better and worse. But it's most notable for its use of real aircrafts and military sanctioned sea faring vessels. Producers also had assistance from the Us Navy in helping to insure the film was accurate in its depiction of United States Naval Aviators. »

'Top Gun 2' Script in Works With 'Amazing Role' for Tom Cruise's Maverick

29 June 2015 3:10 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"Top Gun 2" feels no need for speed. The original came out in May 1986 and we've been talking about a sequel for years. But it sounds like stuff is finally in motion on Maverick's (Tom Cruise) second round, with Skydance CEO David Ellison giving Collider an update during press day for "Terminator Genisys" in Berlin.

Way back in 2010, Tony Scott was being considered to direct, with Christopher McQuarrie charged with writing the script. Sadly, much has changed -- Scott died in 2012 and it sounds like McQuarrie is no longer on board for the script. Here's the latest from Ellison:

Justin Marks is writing the screenplay right now. He has a phenomenal take to really update that world for what fighter pilots in the Navy has turned into today. There is an amazing role for Maverick in the movie and there is no Top Gun without Maverick, and it is going to be Maverick playing Maverick. »
