What's Popping: 'Top Gun 2,' '23 Jump Street,' 'Iron Man 4,' 'Real Steel 2,' 'Ted 2'

Iron Man

Top Gun 2 is back on at Paramount. The studio has hired Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li's Justin Marks to work on the script.

The 22 Jump Street sequel is a go, with Rodney Rothman writing the script. No word if Phil Lord and Christopher Miller will return to direct.

According to Robert Downey Jr., don't expect Iron Man 4 anytime soon. "No, there's no plan for a fourth Iron Man," he said.

Real Steel came out in 2011 and went on to gross nearly $300 million worldwide, so where's the sequel? It's still being worked on, according to director Shawn Levy.

Morgan Freeman is set to play "an iconic civil rights lawyer" in Seth MacFarlane's forthcoming comedy Ted 2.
