Virginiaeranet.com Jerry Bruckheimer has announced that there are no immediate plans to make a third Top Gun movie.
The 78-year-old film producer has been working on ‘Top Gun: Maverick’, the long-awaited sequel to Tom Cruise’s iconic action film, and says he wants to first savor the reactions to the blockbuster before looking ahead and beyond thinks about further strips.
Asked about the possibility of a third film, Jerry told ‘Deadline’: “Let’s ride this wave.” Fans have had to wait 36 years for a ‘Top Gun’ sequel, and Jerry revealed it was never close until director Joseph Kosinski Cruise proposed the film during a meeting in Paris.
Bruckheimer, who produced films like ‘Beverly Hills Cop’ and ‘National Treasure’, said: “It never really got that close, we never had a script, never an idea. Joe went to Paris where Tom was shooting ‘Mission: Impossible’; he had a look book and a poster. He wanted to make sure he got everything right, including filming on the jets with the actors. Tom […] called the head of Paramount and that got the ball rolling.” Jerry added that he’s not surprised that ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ is already popular around the world.
