Los Angeles: Paramount Pictures has made offers to producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Tony Scott for a sequel to their 1986 feature `Top Gun`, with Christopher McQuarrie eyed to update the script, New York magazine`s Vulture blog reported.
Tom Cruise is expected to make an appearance as Maverick, the report said.
David Ellison, the 27-year-old son of Oracle founder Larry Ellison, a trained aerobatic pilot, is a key driver of the project, according to Vulture.
He recently raised $350 million to finance films and struck a first-look deal with Paramount. The first of their film collaborations will be "Mission: Impossible IV," starring Cruise.
