    LOS ANGELES — Following the blockbuster success of "Top Gun: Maverick," sources close to the project have revealed that a third installment of the "Top Gun" series is potentially in development.

    The screenwriter of 2022's hit sequel is reportedly crafting a new script that aims to bring back Tom Cruise in his iconic role as Captain Pete 'Maverick' Mitchell, alongside co-stars Miles Teller and Glen Powell.

    While the project is still in its early stages and may face delays due to Cruise's current commitments, the prospect of a third "Top Gun" movie is generating significant buzz. "Top Gun: Maverick" not only surpassed a billion dollars at the box office but also became Cruise's highest-grossing film to date, setting high expectations for another sequel in the popular franchise.
