When we had our Jerry Bruckheimer exclusive interview a few months ago, he hinted at the fact that Top Gun 2 was a possibility and that whatever they did had to be top notch to match the decades of anticipation.

Now with the hiring of Marks (who is the writer of the Jon Favreau live action The Jungle Book), he has scored the job of a lifetime putting words in Maverick’s mouth.

More on this highly anticipated sequel as details emerge, and until then watch Top Gun online and see why there’s such a buzz about seeing Tom Cruise fly again.
