Tom Cruise could reprise his role of Maverick from his 1986 classic Top Gun.

Top Gun producer Jerry Bruckheimer and 47-year-old Cruise have already tried to follow up the 1986 hit, reports The Daily Star.

'We were recently approached again to start talking about it but, you know, nothing yet,' Bruckheimer said.

'We kicked around some ideas because the aviation community has completely changed since we made the movie. So we have to find a way in and how to incorporate the Maverick character into it,' he added.

Twilight Saga: Eclipse star Robert Pattinson has formed a rock band with fellow actors from the movie.

New Twilight hunk Xavier Samuel has revealed how he and Pattinson have formed the world's hottest guitar band.

The 26-year-old Australian, who plays bad boy Riley in Twilight: Eclipse, said that he plays guitar with co-stars Pattinson and Jackson Rathbone.

But the boys have no plans of starting a band.

'We do play together when we get the chance. Especially Jackson and Rob,' Xavier said.

'They play the guitar but we're not going to start a boy band or anything like that,' he added.

Xavier sang with local band Hyatus, and then called Degrees of Freedom but he said that he had no plans of ending up in a band, reports The Daily Star.

'I don't have any aspirations of becoming a musician or a rock star but I take the guitar with me because it helps me wind down,' Xavier said.

'Because I'm a new addition to the saga, I can observe the other members of the cast and they are all down-to-earth people. I just take a leaf out of their book,' he added.

Michael Jackson's mother Katherine has reportedly struck a business deal to produce and distribute movies about the life of the late King of Pop.

According to TMZ, Jackson's mother has hundreds of hours of video, including the family's move from Gary, Indiana to Los Angeles after The Jackson 5 signed with Mowtown in 1968.

Howard Mann, who co-authored a book called Never Can Say Goodbye with Katherine, is reported to have bought the rights to more videos of the King of Pop owned by his friend and business partner Marc Shaffel, reports the New York Post.

Katherine, 80, is reportedly involved in a business deal to produce and distribute several movies about the life of the legendary singer.

However, the late singer's estate has the exclusive right to market the Michael's name and image, which could put the movie plans in a tricky legal position, TMZ reported
