Tom Cruise's 'Top Gun' getting 3-D makeover for exclusive IMAX run
By Pamela McClintock ,  The Hollywood Reporter

The Hollywood Reporter -- Tom Cruise's 1986 classic "Top Gun" will be released in select Imax theaters on Feb. 8, after being converted to 3-D, Paramount said Tuesday.

The six-day exclusive run precedes the film's debut on Blu-ray.

Under the supervision of the late Tony Scott, who directed the film, "Top Gun" was remastered from high-resolution original negative scans and painstakingly converted to 3-D by Legend3D.

Produced by Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer, "Top Gun" grossed more than $350 million worldwide. It also stars Kelly McGillis, Val Kilmer, Anthony Edwards and Meg Ryan.

Before Scott's death in August, he and Cruise were pursuing a "Top Gun" sequel for Paramount.
