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