A 3D version of Top Gun, starring Tom Cruise, will be released in selected Imax cinemas on 8 February next year.

Paramount announced on Tuesday that the 1986 classic had been re-mastered from high-resolution original negative scans.

The painstaking conversion of the movie, which has earned more than $350m worldwide, was overseen by Tony Scott.

The late director, who died in August, had been looking into a Top Gun sequel with Cruise and Paramount.

Together with Jerry Bruckheimer, they were scouting locations for Top Gun 2 before Scott's suicide. According to a report in the New York Times, plans have since been shelved.

Top Gun in 3D will run in cinemas for six days ahead of the film's debut on Blu-ray.
