It’s actually happening.
Top Gun 2 with Tom Cruise!
I feel the need. The need for speed.
Cruise shared the first pick of Maverick on his social media accounts.
The original first aired more than 30 years ago in 1986.
Original producer Jerry Bruckheimer is back on board as well as Cruise, and Joe Kosinski (Tron, Oblivion) has signed up as director.
The release date is set for 12 July 2019.

The movie will delve into the modern military environment.
“The Navy is very different now than it was in 1986,” Kosinski told ComingSoon.net last year.
“Back then, they hadn’t been in any war for 15 or 20 years at that point.
“The tone of that movie and what those guys were doing was very different.
“Now, here in 2017, the Navy’s been at war for 20 years.
“It’s just a different world now, so you can’t remake the first movie. It has to adapt.”
