Jerry Bruckheimer has taken to Twitter to reveal to the world he and Tom Cruise have met up to discuss the upcoming 'Top Gun' sequel
Tom Cruise has met Jerry Bruckheimer to discuss 'Top Gun 2'.
The action star is set to reprise his role as Lieutenant Pete 'Maverick' Mitchell from the 1986 film about fighter pilots at America's combat flying school in Miramar.
Producer Bruckheimer has revealed he and Cruise met up at the weekend in New Orleans to discuss plans for the action blockbuster, which was confirmed last June to be in development.
Taking to his Twitter account, Jerry uploaded a photograph of the pair smiling together and captioned it: "Just got back from a weekend in New Orleans to see my old friend @TomCruise and discuss a little Top Gun 2 (sic)"
The original 'Top Gun' was a big box office success and has gone on to achieve classic status amongst film fans due to its high octane jet fights, quotable lines which include "I feel the need ... the need for speed" and the love story between Cruise's Maverick and Kelly McGillis, who played Charlie Blackwood.
The film's soundtrack was also lauded and Berlin's track 'Take My Breath Away' - written by Giorgio Moroder and Tom Whitlock - went on to win the Academy Award for Best Original Song.
A date for shooting on the sequel has not been confirmed, and Cruise is currently filming 'Jack Reacher: Never Go Back' and thriller 'Mena'.
