"We've been trying to get that movie made for 30 years, and I think we're getting closer and closer. Don Simpson and I tried to develop something, we didn't succeed. Tom Cruise took over, and he tried to develop something, and he didn't succeed. Now we're back at it," Jerry said.
Jerry, 70, also said that it was the director of the original movie, Tony Scott, who came up with the storyline of the sequel before he passed away in 2012.
"The concept is, basically, are the pilots obsolete because of drones. Cruise is going to show them that they're not obsolete. They're here to stay," he added.
