Writer hired for Top Gun 2
Tom Cruise’s return to the big screen as Maverick might have just got a little closer, as Top Gun 2 takes a step forward…
When the latest rumours about a Top Gun sequel started circling a year or so back, most of us were happy to file the project in the drawer marked ‘believe it if we see it’. We may, however, have been a little hasty.
Firstly, there was the not-insignificant matter of Tom Cruise admitting that he’d chatted to original director Tony Scott about making the new film. Then there was Scott himself, reportedly keen to be involved. And now? Paramount Pictures is looking to push the movie forwards, as it’s hired a screenwriter to put a script together.
The man charged with bringing Maverick back to the big screen? That’d be Peter Craig, perhaps best known thus far for penning The Town.
It’s unclear, thus far, just what angle Craig will be taking with the film. But we’ll keep you posted.
