Plans for a sequel to â€œTop Gunâ€ will have Tom Cruise grappling with a new kind of aerial warfare, one that is more reliant on drones, the veteran producer said during an interview this week with Bloomberg TV's Jon Erlichman. â€œTechnology has changed, obviously, since we made the first one,â€ Bruckheimer said. â€œSo I think we're going to take advantage of what the world is like today with the drones really taking over in a lot of our wars.â€ That may mean that Cruise's Maverick and his â€œneed for speedâ€ will have to get the old adrenaline fix in fresh ways. â€œIs the pilot obsolete?â€ Bruckheimer asked. â€œAre those guys, those jet jockeys, are they gone from now? No I don't think soâ€¦because you still have to make quick decisions.â€ â€œWe're hopefully going to highlight both worlds,â€ he promised. Bruckheimer said that drone concept was cooked up by Tony Scott, the director of the first film who committed suicide in 2012.
