Heck yeah! Top Gun 2 is coming! Tom Cruise, mega action film super star and star of the original movie, confirmed the long rumored sequel on Wednesday:
Shooting would probably begin in the next year…..YESSSSSS! It is definitely happening! Love me some Tom Cruise and Top Gun is one of my all time favorite movies!
The first “Top Gun,” from 1986, stars Mr. Cruise as Maverick, a cocky Navy pilot who heads to flight school and falls for Charlotte Blackwood, known as Charlie, an instructor who is also an astrophysicist. Mr. Cruise’s star turn, a few years after his appearance in the 1983 movie “Risky Business,” helped catapult him to superstardom. The film’s director,Tony Scott tragically killed himself in 2012.
The movie earned several Oscar nominations and won best original song for the love ballad “Take My Breath Away,” performed by the band Berlin.
No release date as of yet but I will definitively keep you posted! Everything old is new again!
