Following the success of “Top Gun: Maverick,” another sequel is reportedly in the works.
Paramount has reportedly tapped the co-writer Ehren Kruger of “Top Gun: Maverick” to write a script for a sequel, an insider told Variety. Paramount is hoping that the director of “Top Gun: Maverick,” Joseph Kosinski will also be on board along with Miles Teller and Glen Powell. And of course, Tom Cruise.
The news comes after Cruise reportedly announced that he had signed a non-exclusive deal with Warner Bros. to develop original movies and franchises, according to Variety. This deal would still give Cruise the ability to work with Paramount and Universal.
“Top Gun: Maverick” was the highest-grossing film of Cruise’s career with $1.49 billion, Deadline reported. It also won an Oscar for Best Sound. It was also nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Picture.
Cruise is currently shooting “Mission: Impossible 8,” according to Deadline.
