In 1986 Paramount took us on a journey to The Top Gun Fighter Weapons School in the classic film Top Gun. Here the hotshot overconfident fighter pilot Maverick played by Tom Cruise is sent to the school alongside his partner Goose played by Anthony Edwards and his rival Iceman played by Val Kilmer to train and refine their elite flying skills, only to be thrown into a dangerous real-world dogfight.
After 30 years Maverick will once again hit the big screen on July 12, 2019. With the release date set, Omega Underground is reporting that Top Gun 2 is looking to start filming this summer in July. This sequel is going to explore Maverick’s role in a modern-day military. The film will be directed by Joseph Kosinksi.
This shooting schedule could be one of the reasons that Cruise did not land the secondary male lead role in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. It is also scheduled to shoot in the summer at the same time as Top Gun 2. Tarantino had announced recently that Brad Pitt had landed that role.
Top Gun is one of my favorite classic films, it will be interesting to see how they adapt that concept for modern days. Are you looking forward to the Top Gun sequel? Let us know in the comment section below!
Paramount’s Top Gun 2 is set to fly into theaters July 12, 2019.
