Tom Cruise admits it will be "fun" to do 'Top Gun 2'.
The 51-year-old actor - who starred as LT Pete 'Maverick' Mitchell in the original action film - admits there are "stumbling blocks" which need to be tackled before they confirm a sequel to 1986's hit movie.
He told Sky News: "With movies, they each have their time - when it's ready to be made. If we can get over some stumbling blocks it will be fun to do."
This comes after producer Jerry Bruckheimer revealed they are getting "closer" to a 'Top Gun' follow-up.
He previously told the Huffington Post: "We've been trying to get that movie made for 30 years, and I think we're getting closer and closer.
"Don (Simpson, Bruckheimer's late producing partner) and I tried to develop something, we didn't succeed. Tom Cruise took over, and he tried to develop something, and he didn't succeed. Now we're back at it."
Cruise was honoured for his success in the film industry at Jameson Empire Awards in London on Sunday (30.03.14) where he picked up the Legend of Our Lifetime accolade, presented to him by his 'Jack Reacher' co-star Rosamund Pike.
He took to the stage to collect his award, and said: "Thank you so much. I feel really fortunate because it was my dream to be able to make films in life.
"It's been a pretty incredible life. I have a rich life because of the incredible people I've worked with. There are too many people to thank. We would be here for hours, maybe days."
