Now Paramount Pictures have announced that the sequel "Top Gun: Maverick" will release on the 19th of July 2019.

In addition, Tron: Legacy filmmaker Joseph Kosinski will direct the film, EW has confirmed.

A follow-up to Tony Scott's 1986 hit has been in the works for quite some time with Tom Cruise interested in reprising his role as United States Naval Aviator Lieutenant Pete "Maverick" Mitchell.

Tom Cruise's Top Gun sequel is preparing for take-off.

No director has been tapped for the sequel as yet, but original producers David Ellison and Jerry Bruckheimer will be back on board to produce with Cruise for "Maverick".

In the movie, Tom plays a cocky aspiring pilot who falls in love with the lovely instructor Charlie Blackwood, played by McGillis. The film won an Academy Award for Best Original Song for "Take My Breath Away" performed by Berlin.

Thing is, Top Gun 2 has the minor problem that there's very few countries that the U.S. can feasibly dogfight with these days.

Tom Cruise was recently seen in a reboot of The Mummy franchise and the first film in the Dark Universe series - a shared universe of monster characters. July 12, 2019. So only an entire year to wait. So far no additional casting announcements have been made, but original cast member (and previous Batman Forever actor) Val Kilmer has expressed excitement about potentially returning. That puts it in theaters a week after the planned sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming.
