At the time, Cruise was busy shooting 'Mission: Impossible.'.

And I basically had 30 minutes to pitch this film, which I didn’t realize when we were flying over.

But when I got there, I found that Tom really didn’t want to make another ‘Top Gun.'

, Joseph Kosinski, 'Top Gun: Maverick' director, via 'New York Post'.

It’s one of those moments as a director, you have one on every film, where you’re on the spot to make a case for why this movie should be made.

I had 30 minutes to do it, Joseph Kosinski, 'Top Gun: Maverick' director, via 'New York Post'.

Afterwards, Cruise called the head of Paramount Pictures and said, "We're making another 'Top Gun.'".

Fans — and Paramount — have Kosinski to thank for that
