The rumors about a sequel to the film, which Tom Cruise also Val Kilmer played a major role, are quite persistent. There is already talk about it since 2010, but the suicide of director Tony Scott made sure then that the second film didn’t come. Also in 2013, when producer Jerry Bruckheimer to Paramount Pictures moved, there was a second part.
In January last year tweette Bruckheimer a photo of a meeting between him and Tom Cruise. Saturday he again confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that there is a script klaarlag and that the preparations for the sequel could start as soon as all noses in the same direction were’.
