Perhaps it’s due to the financial success of the pro-military film “Act of Valor” or that after “Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol” megastar Tom Cruise has shed his years-long negative public image to become a top box office draw all over again, but something has gotten the wheels turning over at Paramount for “Top Gun 2." News on the sequel to the 1986 hit has been few and far apart, with original helmer Tony Scott confirmed to return back in October of 2010, followed by a flurry of news about a 3D revamp of the original and word of Cruise's desire for the sequel to stay true to the tone of the first movie. Then this past October word came that “X-Men: First Class” writing duo Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz were going to pen the script, but what interested us about that news was that it had no mention of previous writing work done by Cruise’s go-to screenwriter for hire Christopher McQuarie. And now another writer looks to be riding into the danger zone.
