Our long national nightmare of a world without a sequel to Top Gun is nearly over. While doing the rounds to promote his role in the upcoming reboot of The Mummy, Tom Cruise confirmed that a sequel is indeed happening and will be shooting next year.
When the film celebrated its thirtieth anniversary last year, producer Jerry Bruckheimer announced that a sequel was imminent. Val Kilmer later confirmed this news, but we hadn't heard a peep from Cruise, the man without whom there really is no Top Gun. Now that he's chimed in, it seems that nothing short of Xenu's return will stop this gravy train from rolling into theaters at some point in the future.
There's no denying that the news of a Top Gun sequel, however belated, is music to the ears of fans of homoerotic volleyball playing everywhere. Whatever excuse they use to get the gang back together is going to be ridiculous, but not anywhere near as ridiculous as anything in that first film. And remember gang, Kelly McGillis may have come out of the closet, but as Quentin Tarantino reminds us, she's still probably only the fourth or fifth gayest thing in that movie...
