Well it seems as if the sequel maybe is now a go, top man of Paramount does say that Tom Cruise is on board to hit new heights as an ageing Maverick.
He let the big news slip during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter about a fifth Mission: Impossible film, stating,
”We’ll likely make a Top Gun sequel with Tom Cruise first. Jerry Bruckheimer would produce, with Tony Scott returning to direct.”
”All parties are moving ahead. We’ve hired Peter Craig to write the script.”
