After numerous collaborations together, it comes as little surprise that writer-director Christopher McQuarrie will once again team with Tom Cruise for the upcoming “Top Gun” sequel.
Cruise has confirmed in a new interview with Empire that McQuarrie will be doing some script polishing work on the follow-up to the 1986 action feature which Cruise’s “Oblivion” director Joseph Kosinski is helming.
The scenario here is similar to what happened with both “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol” and “Edge of Tomorrow” where McQuarrie was brought in to do some polishing work on the script right before and during production.
Peter Craig, Justin Marks and Eric Warren Singer are expected to remain the credited screenwriters on “Top Gun 2” which also stars Val Kilmer, Jennifer Connelly, Miles Teller, Jon Hamm, Ed Harris, Glen Powell, Manny Jacinto, Lewis Pullman, and Thomasin McKenzie.
Filming is currently underway for a June 26th 2020 release.
