The actress also noted that she hasn’t “seen anything” yet when it comes to ‘Top Gun 3,’ though she’s discussed it with director Joseph Kosinski

Jennifer Connelly would love to return to the world of Top Gun again.

The Snowpiercer actress, 53, revealed in a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight that if she got the call to do a third movie in the popular franchise, she’d do it in a heartbeat.

“I’ll be there. I’m ready,” Connelly told the outlet.

She also pointed to her positive experience filming Top Gun: Maverick as the reason why she would return to the film series, saying, “We had such a great time shooting it. It was fun.”

Despite her enthusiasm for the potential project, the actress noted that she hasn’t been privy to “anything” in the works yet.

“I haven’t seen anything,” she said. “I had a casual chat with my friend, Joe Kosinski, who directed it, who I worked with twice now. I’m his biggest fan. I think he’s so great. [I talked to him] about the possibility of it, but I don’t know anything concrete.”

Her comments come a month after Jerry Bruckheimer, the producer behind both Top Gun movies, confirmed to PEOPLE “we’re working on” Top Gun 3.

“We pitched Tom [Cruise] a story he liked. But he’s a very in-demand actor and he’s got a lot of movies lined up, so we have to wait and see,” Bruckheimer, 80, shared of the potential for a third installment.

He noted that part of what makes the Mission Impossible actor, 61, so popular is his work ethic, saying, “A lot of actors, they finish the day, they get in their car and they go home. Tom stays around, talks to the other actors, looks at the film that they shot, wants to know what’s happening tomorrow. He’s really engaged in every part of the process.”

Reports initially circulated in January that a third installment of the Top Gun movie franchise was in the works. The Hollywood Reporter reported that the film’s co-writer Ehren Kruger had been writing a script for the film and that Kosinski would be tapped once again to direct.

Miles Teller, who plays Lt. Bradley “Rooster” Bradshaw in the film series, teased in July 2022 that he and Cruise had “been having some conversations” about the possibility of another movie. Though the actor, 36, noted at the time, “It’s all up to Tom.”

He and costar Glen Powell, 35, both shared that they would be open to returning to the franchise again as well.
