"Top Gun 2" is one of those potential sequels that has movie writers threatening to eat their shoes. Yet the film appears closer to take-off (groan, but ding!) than even the next "Mission: Impossible" movie. That's the word from Paramount Film Group president Adam Goodman, who told THR in a recent interview that "Top Gun 2" is coming soon.

When asked about another "Mission: Impossible" feature, Goldman allowed that it wasn't on the front-burner at the moment.

"We'll likely make a 'Top Gun' sequel with Tom Cruise first. Jerry Bruckheimer would produce, with Tony Scott returning to direct," he said. "All parties are moving ahead. We've hired Peter Craig to write the script."

Craig was hired back in March to replace the hired-in-October-of-2011 duo of Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz ("X-Men: First Class"). Miller and Stentz were too busy with other projects to focus on "Top Gun 2." Christopher McQuarrie, who worked with Cruise on "Valkyrie," was also initially attached to write the script.

In December of last year, Cruise said he was hopeful that "Top Gun 2" would get off the ground (can't help myself).

"I hope we can figure this out to go do it again," he said to MTV. "If we can find a story that we all want to do, we all want to make a film that is in the same kind of tone as the other one and shoot it in the same way as we shot 'Top Gun.'"

Justin Marks, the writer behind Disney’s upcoming live-action version of The Jungle Book, in negotiations to work on Top Gun 2, the sequel to the 1980s Tom Cruise classic that is being made by Paramount and Skydance.

The move will goose up the long-in-the-works sequel and comes after the recent Paramount arrival of producer Jerry Bruckheimer. After years with a studio deal at Disney, Bruckheimer moved to the Melrose Avenue-based studio lot in April.

David Ellison of Skydance is also producing. Skydance's Dana Goldberg is exec producing.

Cruise is slated to return as ace pilot Maverick in a story that aims to show the relevance of good old fashioned pilots in today’s high-tech, drone-centric war environment.

Peter Craig, the scribe who wrote Ben Affleck’s The Town, wrote the previous draft a couple of years ago. The project lost some jet fuel when Tony Scott, the director of the 1986 original and who was to direct the sequel, committed suicide in 2012.

Marks’s script for Jungle Book attracted Jon Favreau and the movie is now in production with Bill Murray, Scarlett Johansson and Idris Elba among the actors doing the voicework.
