This surely has to be THE greatest news ever in the history of Movies!
…well maybe not, but exciting none the less as news online today at variety that ‘The Town’screenwriter Peter Craig (great film, Ben Affleck, Jeremy Renner – check it out!) has been hired by Paramount to pen a script for Top Gun 2!
The fact that a script from Peter Craig is in the offing is great news indeed and may give any Top Gun sequel a real sharp edge when we consider he has also taken up writing duties on Bad Boys 3.
Sadly, no official news yet as to whether Tom Cruise will return as Maverick but I would put money on it. Let’s face it, a Top Gun sequel without him would not be the same and I suspect everyone involved will be trying very hard to make it happen, including Cruise himself.
It would be great if he returned as a ‘Top Gun’ flight instructor, what a fascinating role reversal that would be for the maverick, errr…Maverick!
