Rumours have swirled for years that he would revisit the 1986 movie that made him a household name, and Cruise finally spoke out while in Australia to promote his latest flick The Mummy.

Asked by a Channel Seven breakfast TV host about whether a second installment of the action drama was on the cards, he replied: "Yes, it's true."

"I'm going to start filming it probably in the next year.

"It's happening, it's definitely happening."

The original Top Gun, which also starred Val Kilmer, Kelly McGillis and Tim Robbins, received mixed reviews but was a huge commercial hit.

Directed by Tony Scott, Tom Cruise played hotshot US Navy pilot Pete "Maverick" Mitchell, who has a dangerous and reckless flying style.

He struggles to balance life, responsibility and a love affair while competing at the Navy's fighter-weapons school.
