Justin Marks, the writer of Disney’s upcoming film ‘The Jungle Book’, is reportedly in talks to pen the screenplay for sequel of the 1986 Tom Cruise ‘Top Gun’.

Cruise, 52, is slated to return as ace pilot Maverick in a story that aims to show the relevance of good old fashioned pilots in today’s high-tech, drone-centric war environment, said The Hollywood Reporter.

Peter Craig, the scribe who wrote Ben Affleck’s ‘The Town’, penned the previous draft a couple of years ago. The project was shelved when Tony Scott, the director of the original film and who was to direct the sequel, committed suicide in 2012.
