Tom Cruise Reveals that TOP GUN 2 Has Begun Production!

"The 55-year-old star simply wrote "#Day1" in the caption. The need for speed.

Thirty-two years after he achieved Hollywood superstardom with his lead turn in Tony Scott's Top Gun, Tom Cruise is returning to the cockpit for a long-awaited follow-up dubbed Top Gun: Maverick.

First off, Tom Cruise's Twitter bio reading "Running in movies since 1981." may be my favorite discovery of the week. The image, that marks the beginning of filming and production work, shows U.S. Navy pilot Capt. Pete Mitchell, wearing the flight suit with a TOPGUN patch on his shoulder and what appears to be an F/A-18F Super Hornet in the background. We know this ... it's still Top Gun school, so there will definitely be fighter jets - and we're absolutely positive any Goose scenes will have to be flashbacks.

Tom Cruise on the set of the original 1986 "Top Gun" movie. The sequel is thought to be titled Top Gun: Maverick, with Cruise returning in that titular role, while Oblivion director Joseph Kosinski is stepping behind the camera (in slow motion, against a hazy orange sunset).

Cruise has been talking about this sequel forever.

The Navy says this week it gave Paramount Pictures access to Naval Air Station North Island, here in San Diego, to support the production of 'Top Gun: Maverick'. After all, that wouldn't make the movie about drones in the way that Kosinski was saying, but they would still be part of the story as these pilots have to deal with the evolution of their industry. It's unclear if the original release date, July 12, 2019, will also be moved back.
