Cruise offered scant new details on the long-rumored sequel to the film in which America defeats the Russians with wicked guitar solos, basically, but he did confirm to MTV that he, director Tony Scott, and producer Jerry Bruckheimer are "working on it," and that he does hope to return to the role of young hotshot pilot Maverick, who would still be at least one of those things.

Cruise added, the power of his actualization skills accidentally scrambling a fleet of F-16s piloted by Cruise's sheer force of will, until they had to be shot down over Denver.
