Looks like they are all out of good ideas, or he's just in need of a paycheck!
Reports are surfacing that 22 years after the release of Top Gun, they've decided to make a sequel.
Tom Cruise is said to be in talks to reprise his role of Lt. Pete "Maverick" Mitchell.
Yea, that's what we want to see. A 46 year-old Maverick.
An inside source says, "The idea is Maverick is at the Top Gun school as an instructor - and this time it is he who has to deal with a cocky new female pilot."
Let's hope they don't cast Katie Holmes as the cocky new pilot.
Cruise hasn't had much success at the box office lately, with Mission Impossible III performing below expectations and brining in less money than the first film.
Not to mention his last film, Lions for Lambs , which was released last year and attacked by critics.
Looks like it's time for Cruise to retire.
