Tom Cruise confirmed on an Australian morning show that there will be a sequel to Top Gun, adding, "I'm gonna start filming it in the next year."

It is definitely happening," he told them. "You're the first people I've said this to... I'm here, you asked me, it's going to happen." Here's the clip:

Jerry Bruckheimer is also attached, and hinted at a Top Gun 2 last year, when he met the actor and tweeted this below photo. The original movie was produced by Bruckheimer, and directed by Tony Scott, who committed suicide in 2013.

Top Gun came out over 30 years ago, in 1986, when Cruise was just around 24-years-old.
