Three great movie production companies, Paramount Pictures, Skydance, and Jerry Bruckheimer Films are preparing the second part of the cult movie Top Gun! We will see again women's heartbreaker Maverick, but a little bit older in his great airplane performances, betting against all odds as always. Legendary director Tony Scott, who has done the first part, was preparing this sequel as his next project, but unfortunately, the day when he supposed to meet with Tom Cruise to discuss it, he committed suicide. :(
The storyline of the movie is still unknown, but there are rumors that it would be about drone wars, but also involving fighter jets, the specialty of Maverick. Also, as we can see from the official trailer, the main character will probably go against some dirty officials...
