Sounds like Tom still feels the need, the need for speed!
After weeks of speculation, Tom Cruise finally revealed on Sunrise that there will be a sequel to Top Gun. The iconic film came out in 1986 – yep, 31 years ago! – but fans are more excited than ever about a second installment. When asked whether he could talk about rumors of a second film the actor, 54, replied, “It’s true.”
"You know what? I'm going to start filming it probably in the next year. I know, it's happening, it is definitely happening," he added. "You're the first people that I've really said it [to]. This is going to happen."

But the question everyone wants to know is which of the original stars will be returning for the sequel?
Unfortunately, we won’t get to see Goose (played by Anthony Edwards) and Maverick (Tom) take to the skies again. But, will Maverick’s rival, Iceman (Val Kilmer) make an appearance? We hope so!

Plot details haven’t been unveiled, but if we were to guess Tom will still be a super cool pilot and perhaps take on the role of a Top Gun instructor.

When asked whether he would serenade a woman like his Top Gun character, Maverick, Tom replied, "I would do that. Yes, I would. I am a romantic. I am definitely as a man, very much."
"I'm also a dreamer," he admitted.
Earlier this week, the father-of-three made an appearance on The Project to promote his latest flick The Mummy and revealed the secret behind that iconic dance scene in Risky Business.
“I tried to go across [the floor] at one point and it was too sticky. What I did was I dusted the floor and then put stick [tape] on the other side so I would get centre frame on that and wore the socks. And that’s how I finally did it — to figure out how to get that smooth, right on the beat kind of flow that got me there,” he said.
