A long-awaited sequel to the 1986 movie Top Gun could be getting close and would involve star Tom Cruise showing that pilots are not obsolete at a time when drones increasingly rule the skies.

In an interview on HuffPost Live, Jerry Bruckheimer, one of the producers of the original movie, sounded hopeful about the chances of Top Gun 2 finally being made.

"I think we're getting closer and closer," he said.

(Top Gun director) "Tony Scott finally found a way in to do this, and we were on the road to make the picture, unfortunately he passed away (in 2012)," Bruckheimer said.

"The concept is, basically, are the pilots obsolete because of drones? Cruise is going to show them that they're not obsolete."

It was a matter of getting to a starting place to make Top Gun 2.

"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."

No director has yet been announced for the sequel.
