Paramount has set the release date for its Top Gun sequel as July 12, 2019, according to The Hollywood Reporter

The sequel is titled ?Top Gun: Maverick?.

Maverick is the character Cruise played in the original movie.

Joseph Kosinski, known for directing Cruise in 2013’s Oblivion, will be at the helm, which follows fighter pilots as they grapple with drone tech that is making their old style of flying obsolete.

In May, the 54-year-old-actor confirmed that a sequel to the 1986 classic ‘Top Gun’ is happening and might start filming “probably in the next year.”

Despite mixed reviews, the original Top Gun was a massive success at the box office - earning more than $450 million worldwide against a budget of less than $30 million.
