ET's Denny Directo spoke with Top Gun producer Jerry Bruckheimer at the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales junket on Saturday, where he played coy on whether the movie was in the works, but revealed the story would show "what happened to Maverick for the last 30 years."
"[Cruise and I] talked a little bit about Top Gun. He's excited, he'd love to do it, and Paramount, of course, would like to do it. So once we get all the ducks in a row, hopefully we'll bring it to the screen."
"Listen, it's an iconic character that [Cruise] helped create, so I think we would like to see what happened to Maverick for the last 30 years."
