Report: Paramount considers 'Top Gun' sequel

LOS ANGELES 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.
