"You're the first people I've said it to, you asked me and so I'm telling you", the star added. "This is going to happen".

"We're discussing it. We're trying to figure it out", he said at the time.

"Top Gun" producer Jerry Bruckheimer tweeted a photo with Cruise last week, captioning it as the 31st anniversary of the opening day of "Top Gun".
