That potential 'Top Gun' sequel you may have heard about? It's still in the works. During a press junket for 'Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol,' Tom Cruise revealed that the project is still a go. "We're working on it," he told MTV.
Back in October, two screenwriters -- Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz of 'X-Men: First Class' fame -- were hired to write the script. No word on whether Maverick (Cruise) would actually be in the movie ("we're working on it" could mean Cruise is just a producer), but Tom seems up for reprising his role.

I said to Tony [Scott, director of 'Top Gun'], I want to make another movie with him. He and I haven't made a film since 'Days of Thunder' ... Tony and I and Jerry [Bruckheimer], we never thought that we would do it again. Then they started to come to us with these ideas of where it is now. I thought, 'Wow, that would be ... what we could do now ... I hope we can figure this out to go do it again ... If we can find a story that we all want to do, we all want to make a film that is in the same kind of tone as the other one and shoot it in the same way as we shot 'Top Gun.'

For fans of the original 'Top Gun,' this news could either be awesome or absolutely horrifying. You can see Cruise in 'Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol' -- likely without a fighter jet -- when it opens in IMAX on Dec. 16; a nationwide rollout follows on Dec. 21.
