Rumor: Tom Cruise working on Days of Thunder 2

Not to be outdone by Brad Pitt and Lewis Hamilton making a big F1 movie with Apple, rumor has it that Tom Cruise and Top Gun: Maverick director Joseph Kosinski are collaborating once more on Days of Thunder 2.

In the 1990 film, Tom Cruise plays the talented, but green, racer Cole Trickle who finds himself intimidated by everything about NASCAR when he’s first recruited by wealthy race team owner Tim Daland (Randy Quaid). Cole’s crew chief Harry Hogge (Robert Duvall) mentors him, and the seasoned champion Rowdy (Michael Rooker) becomes Trickle’s first rival.

After both Rowdy and Cole wind up in the hospital after a race, the latter falls head over heels for his neurosurgeon Dr. Claire Lewicki (Nicole Kidman).

Along with the talent already mentioned, Days of Thunder starred Cary Elwes (The Princess Bride) as antagonist Russ Wheeler, John C. Reilly (Boogie Nights) as Cole’s car chief Buck, and the late Fred Thompson (The Hunt for Red October) as NASCAR president Big John.

With Days of Thunder 2 still in development, there’s no word on which, if any, of Tom Cruise’s surviving Days of Thunder co-stars might join him for the sequel. When we know, we’ll make sure you know.

Cruise recently made a big appearance at the Miami GP F1 race.
