Is Tom Cruise really feeling the need for speed...again?
The actor's Maverick presence is desired, of course, for a proposed Top Gun sequel being developed at Paramount. But whether or not he wants to pull a Gordon Gekko and reprise one of the most iconic film roles of the 1980s in the oughts remains to be seen.
A rep for Cruise tells E! News that a definite yay or nay on this one is going to take some time.
David Ellison, son of Oracle billionaire Larry Ellison and a licensed aerobatic pilot, has a first-look deal with Paramount and is said to be the driving force (besides all the jet fuel, that is) behind the project. However, a source close to Cruise tells E! News, "There is talk of a sequel, all else that has been written is false."
