Cruise in conflict with drones in `Top Gun 2`?

Los Angeles: `Top Gun 2` is still happening, says producer Jerry Bruckheimer, and the plot of the sequel to the 1986 Tom Cruise starrer is modern.

"We`ve been trying to get that movie made for 30 years, and I think we`re getting closer and closer," Bruckheimer was quoted as saying.

"Don (Simpson co-producer of `Top Gun`) and I tried to develop something, we didn`t succeed. (Tom) Cruise took over, and he tried to develop something, and he didn`t succeed. Now, we`re back at it," he added.

Bruckheimer said that it was Tony Scott, the film`s original director, who was able to crack the story before his death in 2012.

"The concept is, basically, are the pilots obsolete because of drones. Cruise is going to show them that they`re not obsolete. They`re here to stay," Bruckheimer said.

"It`s just getting to the starting place. Fortunately for Tom, he`s very busy, so you have to find a slot he can fit into and get a budget that Paramount feels they can make the picture," he added.
