How about "Top Gun"? The 1986 action-drama was one of the early hot roles for Cruise, and it has long been the subject of sequel talk. MTV's Josh Horowitz asked producer Jerry Bruckheimer what the possibilities might be at the weekend junket for "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" and it sounds as though folks behind the scenes are still talking about it.
"We tried to develop [a sequel] and we couldn't do it-- I was with my partner Don Simpson," Bruckheimer explained. "And then Tom took it over and he tried to develop something and it never quite happened." That's all in the past though. It turns out that "Top Gun" has been the subject of much more recent sequel discussions as well.
