'Top Gun 2': Director Joseph Kosinski Circling Tom Cruise Sequel

1 hour ago

Joseph Kosinski could be re-teaming with Tom Cruise on a sequel to Top Gun.

The director, who worked with the star in 2013's Oblivion, is circling the director's chair for the Paramount sequel to the 1986 action film about a class of hot-headed fighter pilots, who love aviator sunglasses and volleyball equally.

The sequel will be set in modern day, with the original fighter pilots grappling with new drone technologies that are making their old style of flying obsolete.
