Tom Cruise Is About To Start Filming The Biggest Sequel Of His Career
It sounds like the movie that launched Tom Cruise to superstardom is finally getting a sequel.
Just days after celebrating the 31st anniversary of the release of “Top Gun,” Cruise announced that they will begin filming “Top Gun 2” within the next year.
The leading actor revealed the news while talking to reporters on Wednesday, during which he said the long-awaited sequel is “definitely happening,” Fox News reports.
Cruise has dropped hints about a potential sequel to the high-flying action film before, but hadn’t made this positive of a declaration of it actually happening until now.
Cruise first played the role of the reckless fighter pilot who went by “Maverick” in his 20s, now he’ll reprise the role more than 30 years later at age 54.
It’s going to be near impossible to live up to the 1986 action/drama, but surely fans of the original will be excited to see them try to take their breath away once again.
