Joseph Kosinski develops a ‘beautiful’ story idea for Tom Cruise

Moviegoers had to wait 36 ​​years between “Top pistol‘ and ‘Top Gun: Maverick’, but the third film in the franchise may come much sooner. Paramount announced plans to move forward with “Top Gun 3” in January 2024. Tom Cruise is expected to return alongside Glen Powell and Miles Teller.

Cruise’s busy schedule, which includes a sequel to “Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning” and an untitled English-language feature film from Alejandro González Iñárritu, makes it unlikely that he can begin production on “Top Gun 3” in the near future . . But according to franchise producer Jerry Bruckheimer, director of ‘Maverick’ Joseph Kosinski‘s new script runs smoothly.

“It’s going to be Tom Cruise,” Bruckheimer said of the hypothetical third film in a recent interview with Screen Rant. “Tom is great. We spent time with him. We have a story. Joe Kosinski had a great story idea for it and he said, “I really like that,” so we’re developing it. But you never know when it will be made, because Tom is so busy. He’s currently doing ‘Mission: Impossible’, he has a photo behind it. Hopefully we get a scenario he likes and we’re back on the air.”

Speculation about “Top Gun 3” began almost immediately after the success of “Maverick,” but the supporting cast always acknowledged that a third film would ultimately rest on Cruise’s willingness to return and the team’s ability to tackle more deadly to do aerial stunts.

“So, will there be a ‘Top Gun 3’? If we can come up with more crazy stuff that has to do with airplanes or a story that’s compelling and emotional and adventurous and romantic and all those things, I’m sure Tom would be down,” Powell said in a 2022 interview with IndieWire. ‘But that’s above my pay grade. Maybe when you talk to him you can tell him!
