The tragic death of director Tony Scott last year would seem to have put plans for a “Top Gun” sequel on hold. But that’s not the case according to Jerry Bruckheimer (“Pirates of the Caribbean”).

“For 30 years we’ve been trying to make a sequel and we’re not going to stop. We still want to do it with Tom [Cruise] and Paramount are still interested in making it,” Bruckheimer told Deadline.

Bruckheimer also said Tom Cruise is still passionate about a “Top Gun 2”. Are you?
