Tom Cruise has confirmed he'll be in Top Gun 2, and while there aren't many 54-year-old Navy fighter pilots in the real world, Maverick is unlikely to spend the film on desk duty. Cruise told Aussie interviewers Tuesday he'll be appearing in a sequel to 1986's highest-grossing movie, USA Today reports. "It is definitely happening," he told Sunrise. "I'm going to start filming it probably in the next year." Cruise didn't reveal further details on the sequel, which had long been hinted at by producer Jerry Bruckheimer and co-star Val Kilmer, who played Iceman in the original, the Guardian reports.
