He describes the plot...
In an interview with The Huffington Post to promote his new book (Jerry Bruckheimer: When Lightning Strikes, Four Decades of Filmmaking), producer Jerry Bruckheimer revealed some plot details about Top Gun 2. He revealed that Tony Scott came up with the story idea before his death in 2012.
He said: "We've been trying to get that movie made for 30 years, and I think we're getting closer and closer. Don [Simpson] and I tried to develop something, we didn't succeed. [Tom] Cruise took over, and he tried to develop something, and he didn't succeed. Now we're back at it. The concept is, basically, are the pilots obsolete because of drones. Cruise is going to show them that they're not obsolete. They're here to stay. It's just getting to the starting place. Fortunately for Tom, he's very busy, so you have to find a slot he can fit into and get a budget that Paramount feels they can make the picture."
Scott was set to direct the film before his passing. A new director has not been found.
