article image'Top Gun' Tom Cruise Back On the Radar

By Saikat Basu     Jul 22, 2008 in Entertainment
A report doing the rounds says that Tom Cruise is keen to reprise his role as 'Maverick' in a proposed sequel to the smash hit 'Top Gun'.
Would it be too much of a good thing? The grapevine is abuzz with reports that Tom Cruise may just don those fighter jackets and the emblematic 'Aviator' glasses again for a sequel to 1986 mega smash 'Top Gun'. Maverick could come back to reprise a role which made him the heartthrob of the world, but 22 years down the line the surefire cockiness could be replaced by a more mature approach.
The idea of the role is apparently to bring him back to the elite US Flying School as an instructor to a fresh batch of trainees. And now,he will be dealing with a female cocky trainee pilot. Probably an echo of the role he himself played in the first movie. The last film ended with him returning to the school as an instructor. A Hollywood insider said,
" The idea is Maverick is at the Top Gun school as an instructor – and this time it is he who has to deal with a cocky new female pilot."
The original film sent pulses racing for some of us and some to the nearest sunglass stores. Twenty two years down the line, hopefully the blast would be just as good.
