The Rock of Ages star has said that he is keen to return in a sequel to his hit film.
"We're working on it," Cruise told MTV News.
"We'll see what happens, if I can figure out the script and we get it. It would be fun getting into those jets. I want to get in those jets!"
Cruise previously said that he would reprise his 1986 role as Maverick if the plot is right.
Val Kilmer has also said that he would be interested in returning for the sequel.
Paramount executive Adam Goodman has confirmed that Top Gun 2 is in development, with The Town writer Peter Craig working on the script.
Cruise will next be seen in Rock of Ages, which opens in UK cinemas on June 13 and in the US on June 15.
