Strap in and lock and load because the Top Gun sequel is set to fly its way into cinemas in Summer 2019. The film, titled Top Gun: Maverick, will see Tom Cruise reprise his role as the ace-fighter pilot.
However no news yet on when production of the film will start. No director has been named as yet for the film either. It remains to be seen if any of the original cast members will return to the sequel. Top Gun also starred Kelly McGillis, Val Kilmer, Tom Skerritt and Michael Ironside.
Top Gun is considered one of the best action movies of the 80s. A cult classic in its own right, the film centred on US Air Force pilots who had to contend for the top spot in fighter pilot school.
At present no indication on where Top Gun: Maverick might pick up although it’s been three decades since the original film. There were numerous rumours revolving around the project, one which suggested that the sequel will be set within the confines of drone technology.
But all the same, let’s wait for this one to jet its way into cinemas in summer 2019.
