It's good news for those who have the need for speed: The 1986 hit, "Top Gun" will be converted to 3D and rereleased in theaters.

A four-minute clip of the updated film - the 'Danger Zone' aerial scene - premiered at the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) in Amsterdam on Monday.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Top Gun" is slotted for 3D release in early 2012, pending Tony Scott's approval.

The film is being converted by Legend3D. CEO Rob Hummel believes the flying flick is perfectly suited to the medium.

"We think there is great potential for catalog titles in 3D, but studios have had trouble justifying the expense, I think "Top Gun" lends itself to 3D due to the aerial flight," he said.
