The 1986 movie Top Gun of Tom Cruise is getting a sequel and is learned to be releasing on 12 July 2019. It will be named Top Gun: Maverick and to feature drone technology.
However, about the title the Paramount Studies still list it as Top Gun, creating confusion whether the much awaited movie could be named as Top Gun 2.
The word ‘Maverick’ has been added in the sequel from Cruise’s character’s nickname in the original.
Tom Cruise, 54, played the role of Naval Aviator Lt. Pete Mitchell in Top Gun. Val Kilmer and Kelly McGillis too starred in the original directed by Tony Scott.
Joe Kosinski will be directing the new movie and producer Jerry Bruckheimer tweeted he is excited to announce the sequel.
Kosinski directed Cruise in the movie Oblivion in 2013.
Top Guj was a big hit 33 years earlier and grabbed over $350 million globally.
