For quite a few years there’s been talks of a second Top Gun movie. Indeed, it looked like it was nearing production with the director of the original, Tony Scott, at the helm. However, when Scott died the whole project got delayed.
Now though Tom Cruise is back on set for Top Gun: Maverick and to prove it he’s shared the first image from the movie, taken on the first day of shooting. Not much is known about the plot of the film, although there has been talk about it being another competition film, possibly between the new generation of drones and the old school fighter pilots like Cruise’s Maverick.
We should hear a lot more about it before it’s released in cinemas in July 2019. Joseph Kosinski (Tron: Legacy) is directing the movie.
