'Top Gun 2' Starts Production; Tom Cruise Tweets Photo Tease

Fans were overjoyed to hear filming had finally started on the project, as Cruise suffered a significant ankle injury while filming a stunt for Mission: Impossible 6 in 2017 that set the schedule back for both films.

Tom Cruise appears to have revealed that filming has begun on the much anticipated Top Gun sequel.

Star Cruise, 55, posted an image across his social media Thursday showing himself in a full-body shot as his character, Lt. Pete Mitchell, in a Navy flight uniform and holding a red-white-and-blue crash helmet with the nickname "Maverick" emblazoned on it.

Tom Cruise feels the need - the need for speed.

Check it out below.


United States entertainment trade daily Variety has reported that the sequel has the title Top Gun: Maverick and focuses on drone technology. Tony Scott's original film may not have been a masterpiece, but it left one hell of an impression that still has us humming that "You've Lost that Lovin' Feelin.'" Presumably, Top Gun 2 will be breaking out an unchained melody or two of its own.

Maybe they have a great script that has a real story to tell, but I do wonder if Top Gun 2 is about 20 years too late arriving? This won't be the first time Kosinski has brought a popular '80s movie property back to the big screen either; he also directed the Tron reboot Tron Legacy in 2010.

So far the plot of the sequel's been kept under wraps and, other than Tom, no casting's been announced.

In the 1986 film, Goose died after hitting his head when he and Maverick were forced to eject from their F-14 in a scene that left most cinema-goers in bits.
