Top Cruise hopeful of Top Gun sequel

June 14th, 2012

Tom Cruise has confirmed he ''hopes'' to make 'Top Gun 2'.

The 'Rock of Ages' actor admits he is keen to reprise his role as United States Naval Aviator Lieutenant Pete 'Maverick' Mitchell in a follow-up to the classic 1986 movie but will only sign on if the script is right.

He said: ''You know what, if we can get the script right, then we'll do it. And that's what we hope to do.''

Also currently at the planning stages is a fifth installment of the 'Mission: Impossible' franchise and Tom admits it is again dependent on the quality of the submitted script.

He told 'Access Hollywood': ''Again, yeah, if I could get the script right, we're going to do it. We're going to do our best.''

Tom has appeared in almost 40 movies but can't choose which of his work represents him the best.

Asked which film shows ''the real Tom'', he said: ''That is too difficult. That's like asking which one, you know, is your favourite child! I mean, each one, I put so much into them.''
