October 15, 2010 12:00:00 AM PDT
Hollywood apparently feels "the need for speed" again. Paramount Pictures is reportedly considering a sequel to "Top Gun."The 1986 movie, and "the need for speed" line, helped turn Tom Cruise into a superstar.

New York Magazine reports that Paramount Pictures has made offers to the original "Top Gun" producer and director Jerry Bruckheimer and Tony Scott to make a sequel.

Cruise is expected to make a return as the character Maverick, but it's not clear how big a role he would have in the new movie.

It's 24 years later, so Maverick should have moved up the military ladder.
