Top Gun sequel still ‘long way away’

Fans of the classic action film 'Top Gun' may have to wait a while for a sequel, Jerry Bruckheimer has revealed.

The original movie starring Tom Cruise as daredevil pilot ‘Maverick’ was produced by Jerry in 1986 and was a huge success worldwide.

Jerry has admitted that even though producers and writers have been plotting a second film since the first one hit the big screen over 24 years ago, nothing has yet been forthcoming.

"You know, it's a long ways away," Jerry said. "We've been talking about it since the movie came out and it was a big hit.”

He revealed Hollywood star Tom had attempted to get a sequel to the film rolling a long time ago, but not even the good-looking 48-year-old managed to get it off the ground.

Jerry said that although Tom had struggled to make it happen the pair haven’t given up all hope yet.

"Tom Cruise took a run at it many years ago and we just couldn't crack it. So we'll see what happens now," Jerry said.
