Top Gun 3 In Works at Paramount

Top Gun 3: A new “Top Gun” film is said to be in development, and this time, Paramount Pictures isn’t making fans wait as long as they did for the last one.

Following the success of “Top Gun: Maverick,” Paramount is reportedly in the early stages of developing a third installment in the popular franchise. Tom Cruise, Miles Teller, Glen Powell, and “Maverick” director Joseph Kosinski are all rumored to be potential returnees for the new project.

Reports of a new “Top Gun” movie come from Puck, a digital-media startup known for credible reporting on influential areas like Washington, D.C. and Hollywood. Paramount representatives have chosen not to comment on the report.

In recent years, Tom Cruise has been working on a movie with scenes filmed aboard the International Space Station, aiming to make it the first film shot in space. However, Russian filmmakers accomplished this feat before him. Cruise has also signed a deal with Warner Bros. to create movie franchises but is still free to work on projects outside of this deal. Currently, he is involved in another Paramount franchise film, “Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part Two,” and has been the star of Paramount’s Jack Reacher movie series.

“Top Gun: Maverick” proved to be a major success for Tom Cruise and Paramount Pictures, receiving critical acclaim and achieving commercial success. It became Cruise’s highest-grossing film and the studio’s second-highest grossing film, trailing only behind the 1997 blockbuster “Titanic.” Similar to “Titanic,” “Maverick” received a nomination for Best Picture at the 95th Academy Awards but lost to “Everything, Everywhere, All at Once.” The film also earned nominations in several other categories, including Best Sound (which it won), Best Adapted Screenplay, Original Song, Editing, and Visual Effects.

The prospect of a new “Top Gun” movie is likely to bring joy to the U.S. military. While the widely circulated claim that the original “Top Gun” film in 1986 led to a 500% increase in Navy recruits has been debunked, the movie did contribute to a notable rise in interest. Enlistments in the Navy saw an 8% increase in the year of the film’s release. Considering the ongoing recruiting challenges faced by the U.S. military, achieving an 8% boost in new recruits would be a significant and welcome outcome for the Navy and other branches.
