Since producer Jerry Bruckheimer has gotten back together with Paramount, the first thing they would like to shove down our throats are the long-discussed and speculated follow-ups to iconic 80's films Beverly Hills Cop and Top Gun. Brett Ratner will be directing the fourth Beverly Hills Cop installment, which comes as little surprise, considering he's become BFF's with Eddie Murphy, apparently since Tower Heist, which must have been a strange set to kindle a friendship on.

Anyway, on the Top Gun front, it's being reported that Tom Cruise is on board, which is something we've whispers of before, but Deadline is reporting it for reals this time, and they wouldn't lie to us.

It's a good time to live in the past!
