Jennifer Connelly will be seen — eventually — in the long-awaited sequel to the 1986 classic “Top Gun”, and when the movie finally does arrive in theatres she promises fans that it will have been worth the wait.
In a new interview with Extra, Connelly discussed what it was like to work with star Tom Cruise as he resurrected his most iconic film role more than 30 years later.
“I’ve never seen anyone work harder, be more committed to his work,” Connelly said of Cruise. “Every moment is an opportunity to do all that he can do to deliver the best thing that he can possibly deliver.”
Working with Cruise, she admitted, forced everyone involved to bring their best.
“I’ve never been more paranoid about knowing my lines,” Connelly said. “This is a tight ship. He’s so prepared. All the time.”
While the film’s release has been delayed to late 2020 — if not later — Connelly promises that when the movie finally debuts on the big screen, it will be worth the wait.
“Those flying sequences are going to be so extraordinary,” she said. “I think it is a movie that would be great to see on big screens if we can get there.”
