Well, it’s really happening… we’ve been telling you for a while, but now it’s confirmed!

Top Gun producer Jerry Bruckheimer tweeted (see below) an image of himself and Tom Cruise together and revealed: “Just got back from a weekend in New Orleans to see my old friend @TomCruise and discuss a little Top Gun 2”

How’s that for a slice of fried gold?!

After the death of Tony Scott it was feared that the movie wouldn’t happen but as star Val Kilmer said: “We will all miss Tony Scott one of the kindest gentlemen I’ve ever met in the film biz, but let’s fire up some fighter jets again!!!”

The movie will apparently focus on drone warfare and how it effects the real pilots in fighter jets. Skydance Productions CEO and producer David Ellison said: “Justin Marks is writing the screenplay right now. He has a phenomenal take to really update that world for what fighter pilots in the navy have turned into today. There is an amazing role for Maverick in the movie and there is no Top Gun without Maverick. It is going to be Maverick playing Maverick. I don’t think it is what people are going to expect, and we are very, very hopeful that we get to make the movie very soon. But like all things, it all comes down to the script, and Justin is writing as we speak.”

Are you excited to see Maverick and Ice Man back up on the big screen? Hell, yes, you are!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
