The sequel is reported to be a story set in the current time that will be dealing with very modern warfare. It will be exciting to see Cruise soar the skies yet again reprising his character Pete “Maverick” Mitchell.
Joseph Kosinski, ‘Oblivion’ director, will be directing the sequel of the 1986 hit. Jerry Bruckheimer is returning to produce the sequel, along with Skydance’s David Ellison and Cruise. Legendary German composer Harold Faltermeyer, who created the memorable synth score of Top Gun, is also joining the production team. Top Gun: Maverick is scheduled to be released on 12 July 2019.
But way before that, Cruise’s next film Mission: Impossible Fallout is all set to hit theaters on July 27.
