There has been a lot of talk and a lot of hinting around this one.  Most of it has been coming from Cruise himself and Jerry Bruckheimer.  Deadline accumulated a list of those hints, including Bruckheimer’s visit to the set of Jack Reacher: Never Go Back to discuss plot lines for the sequel, Cruise’s alluding to the possibility on The Graham Norton Show and now, the seemingly spontaneous confirmation.  

There are no details on what exactly the plot will be, or who Maverick will be taking on this time.  The hope is that now, the flood gates will open and perhaps the details will flow.  

We’ll keep you updated on developments.  It’s an incredibly charming interview that Cruise gave.  Check it out here.
