Los Angeles, June 27 (IANS) “Top Gun 2” will be “very much a world we live in today where it’s drone technology” and will see actor Tom Cruise reprising his role as Maverick in the sequel to the 1986 film, says Skydance CEO David Ellison.

“Justin Marks is writing the screenplay right now. He has a phenomenal take to really update that world for what fighter pilots in the Navy has turned into today,” said Ellison, reports variety.com.

“It is very much a world we live in today where it’s drone technology and fifth generation fighters…It’s really exploring the end of an era of dogfighting and fighter pilots and what that culture is today,” he added.

Ellison also hinted that Cruise will reprise his role.

“There is an amazing role for Maverick in the movie, and there is no ‘Top Gun’ without Maverick, and it is going to be Maverick playing Maverick,” Ellison said.
