In 2016, Cruise addressed rumors about a sequel on the U.K.’s “The Graham Norton Show.” At the time, when host Norton asked, Cruise said “no.” When pressed further and asked about a tweet teasing “Top Gun 2” from “Top Gun” producer Jerry Bruckheimer, he said, “Yes, we’re discussing it.”
It looks like the discussions went well.
“Top Gun” celebrated its 31st anniversary in the U.S. May 16.
