When we first heard the news about the new Top Gun movie we were pretty excited. And now we’ve heard there will probably be another volleyball scene? Well, let’s just say we need a little lie-down. Because it doesn’t get better than this.
Since the news broke, Top Gun star Tom Cruise has been inundated with questions surrounding Top Gun 2 – and finally, he gave us some answers worth celebrating. Talking to Entertainment Weekly, Cruise said,
There’s gonna be jets – very fast jets. There’s gonna be an aircraft carrier, maybe two. And a wide range of jets. It’s gonna have music…We have a soundtrack. There’s gonna be actors in it. [And a] motorcycle – definitely [a] motorcycle.
Don’t worry; he gets there in a minute.
[There] may be a volleyball scene. Maybe. We’ll see. I have not told anyone in the world as much as I’ve just told you right now.
We’re hoping Tom Cruise’s ‘maybe’ is a bit more definite than when our moms used to say ‘maybe’ when she really meant ‘no’.
But let’s be honest, the whole world wants another volleyball scene, right?
The new movie is set to start shooting sometime this year, although it’s yet to confirm its director. However, we’ve heard through the grapevine that Joseph Kosinski is in the running, and that producer Jerry Bruckheimer is all up for adding him to the team.
Just to make your day, here’s THAT volleyball scene from the 1986 Top Gun. You’re welcome:
