The return of a masterful tale! Top Gun is back, and we are so excited! One of the most iconic movies in history is here and star Hollywood actor Tom Cruise has announced the name of the Top Gun sequel.
And the new title is super. Check this out: The actor revealed the title - Top Gun: Maverick - in a recent interview, saying "you don't need a number" in all sequel titles.
If you are a fan of the 1986 hit, then you'd remember that Maverick was Tom's character's nickname in the film in which he played hot and fearless Naval aviator Lt. Pete Mitchell.
Here are some sneak insights straight from the horses mouth : "Aviators are back, the need for speed. We're going to have big, fast machines. It's going to be a competition film, like the first one ... but a progression for Maverick," he told Access Hollywood. We can hardly wait as Cruise revealed that filming would start soon—middle of next year actually.
Tom would be working with new and old cast and crew members. He also said that Harold Faltermeyer will return to score the movie, which will be "stylistically" similar to the original.
Sci-fi action movie Oblivion director Joseph Kosinski is the top choice to direct the second installment.
Top Gun is the classic blockbuster that many believe made Tom Cruise a bona fide A list star.
