Producer Jerry Bruckheimer says the “Top Gun” sequel that director Tony Scott was prepping at the time of his sad passing is still very much on; further, it mightn’t be too much longer before it goes before the cameras.

 ‘We’ve been trying to get that movie made for 30 years, and I think we’re getting closer and closer,’ the “Pirates of the Caribbean” producer tells The Huffington Post.

‘Don (Simpson, Bruckheimer’s late producing partner) 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.’

Bruckheimer says it isn’t so much a problem of finding a script or story now – they’ve got one – but more Cruise’s availability.

“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 explained.

At the Empire Awards in London, Cruise was also quizzed about the sequel.

“With movies, they each have their time – when it’s ready to be made”, the actor tells Sky News. “If we can get over some stumbling blocks it will be fun to do,’ he said of the long-gestating sequel. ”

The film will again see Cruise play Lt Pete ‘Maverick’ Mitchell.

“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.”
