‘X-Men: First Class’ Writers Chosen To Pen ‘Top Gun’ Sequel
  |  @   |  

Paramount Pictures along with Skydance Productions is moving forward with their planned sequel to the 1986 action hit, Top Gun, which starred Tom Cruise as a cocky and talented young fighter pilot.

It’s being reported that Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz have been chosen to write the screenplay for the planned sequel, and that the duo are currently in negotiations on a deal.

Miller and Stentz have recently made splashes in the comic book movie relams, penning the scripts for both Thor and X–Men: First Class for Marvel. They’ve also worked together as writers and producers on Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and Fringe.

It’s not yet known exactly where the sequel will go in terms of story and as a continuation of the original movie, nor is it known whether Tony Scott, who directed the first, or Cruise will be coming back in some capacity or not.
