The Mission: Impossible star said people were insisting he make a sequel to the 1986 classic.
“Everywhere I went, people would be like: ‘Do Top Gun‘, and I’m like: ‘Guys, I don’t know how to do it’,” he explained. “I don’t know what the story is. I don’t make movies just to make movies. I was like: ‘Jerry [Bruckheimer], it’s never going to happen’ I honestly never thought I would make it.
“We just started talking. And I realised that there were things that we could accomplish cinematically. And I started getting excited about this big challenge of ‘How do we do it?’ So I said to Jerry: ‘I’ll do it if…’ meaning, I’m not going to do the CGI stuff.”
