Perfect news for a Friday when remakes of 'Footloose' and 'The Thing' are unspooling at your local multiplex: Variety reports that the sequel for 'Top Gun' you don't necessarily want has found two screenwriters. Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz, two of the six credited writers on 'X-Men: First Class,' will handle scripting duties for 'Top Gun 2,' which Jerry Bruckheimer and David Ellison are producing. No word yet whether Tony Scott and Tom Cruise will be involved in the sequel, but with or without them, it looks like Paramount is moving forward with the project. The original 'Top Gun' grossed over $350 million worldwide when it was released in May of 1986.
