A Top Gun Sequel Has Been Confirmed By The Maverick Himself

With all the sequels and reboots happening every year, it's not too much of a surprise when a new one is announced, but this one caught us off guard! Are you ready to take the highway to the danger zone...again?

Tom Cruise was on an Australian morning show and announced that the Top Gun sequel was officially happening.

"It's true, it's true. I'm going to start filming it probably in the next year. It's happening, it's definitely happening." Tom Cruise said to the reporter.

Jerry Bruckheimer produced the original and back in January 2016 he tweeted out a picture with Tom Cruise saying they were discussing it but when no news came out of it we all let it go.

But now, both are back and they are trying to figure out the plot. The original was directed by the late Tony Scott, and there is no word on who plans on filling in. Also up in the air is whether Val Kilmer would come back as he is recovering from cancer, but people have a lot of questions of what the sequel would actually be.

A lot has changed in the world since this movie came out, so people have some thoughts of what they should expect.

Do you think you'll watch the new version? Or are you happy sticking with the original?

Let us know in the comments!

'Murphy Brown' Revival Reveals Who They've Cast As Her Son But We're Still A Little Nervous

It was just a couple of months ago that we all got both excited and a little nervous for the Murphy Brown reboot. Sure, we loved the show when it originally aired, but as a rule, reboots are never as good as we want them to be. The show was unlike any others of its time. First of all, the lead character was a woman. Second of all, she was a woman with a controversial history. The recovering alcoholic was a career-focused woman, but she also made huge breakthroughs for women on television. She was a single mother, one who


Gene Wilder Had A Lot Of Demands Before Becoming Willy Wonka And We're So Happy He Did

There are few actors who seem to care as much as Gene Wilder did. The iconic actor was an absolute treasure and the effort he put into his roles was clearly evident. Watching Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory was always a pretty big moment for people when they were kids. You honestly don't know fear until you watch the creepy boat tunnel scene and experience a type of terror that makes no sense. But even though Willy Wonka kind of frightened us, we still loved his goofy nature and his outlandish attitude. Wilder had many hit movies, but it's


'Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory' Star Returns To TV And Everyone Was Freaking Out

Watching Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory as a kid was basically a requirement. Pretty much everyone had to watch it, otherwise everyone else would think you were crazy. Seeing all those bratty kids roam around the chocolate factory, demanding Wonka explain all of his eccentric genius is one of those things that I think was supposed to make me think Wonka was being mean, but really it just made me hate those kids - even Charlie. I know he was technically the hero of the story, but even he broke off from the group and invaded a space he

'Top Gun' Sequel Gets A Release Date And A Title And We're On The Highway To The Danger Zone

Tom Cruise was easily the definitive star of the 80s and 90s. He had a lot of huge hits, but few were as amazing and iconic as Top Gun. Watching them fly their planes and play beach volleyball was super entertaining, and because it's 2018, of course they are planning to bring it back in some way. Nothing is safe from a reboot, remake or sequel, especially if Tom Cruise has a say. The Mission Impossible franchise is on its sixth movie now, with Cruise happily performing his own stunts and continuing to defy danger, but apparently that's not enough.
