Top Gun’s Jerry Bruckheimer Throws Back To ’86 When Asked About The Possibility Of A Tom Cruise Threequel

ytsfreeSeptember 7, 2022

Fresh off slugging it with Spider-Man: No Way Home over Labor Day weekend, Top Gun: Maverick has been riding high after crushing Titanic’s box office record. Its success has led to fans calling for a Top Gun threequel. With voices getting louder for a Maverick follow-up, Top Gun producer Jerry Bruckheimer heard the online chatter. Bruckheimer gave a brilliant throwback to 1986 when asked about a possible Tom Cruise threequel.

The Top Gun sequel was no small feat as the legendary Hollywood producer recalled the film being stuck in developmental hell for years following the tragic death of original director Tony Scott. But things came together after all the important pieces (including Tom Cruise) came through with an exciting story for new and old fans. Despite the sequel chatter, Jerry Bruckheimer was honest with Radio Times about how close (or not) moviegoers are to getting a much-talked-about threequel.

I can’t tell you what the future is going to bring. If you’d asked me in ’86, ‘Do you think you’ll have a sequel out in a few years?’ I’d have said maybe. But it took 30-something years to do it!
