Tom Cruise and F-35 to co-star in 'Top Gun II'

Tom Cruise reportedly is going to play an F-35 test pilot in a sequel to Top Gun.

Stephen Trimble of the  Dew Line blog reports that Lockheed Martin executive Tom Burbage shared the news at a National Aeronautics Association lunch meetings in Washington D.C. two weeks ago.

Lockheed’s Fort Worth, Texas, factory and flight test center will host production crew in the “next month or so” to start filming, Burbage told the NAA luncheon crowd.

Burbage also confirmed that Cruise will not just make a cameo; he will be the star, and he is playing the role of a Lockheed F-35 test pilot.

In other words, I feel the need, the need for some F-35 speed.
