The actor shared what appears to be a teaser for Top Gun 2 to his social media channels in the early hours of Thursday morning.

Tom Cruise has had a need for speed for more than 30 years.

"Feel the need", the epic post on Instagram and Twitter says, along with the hashtag #Day1.

Back in January 2016, legendary producer Jerry Bruckheimer revealed that he had been talking to Tom Cruise about a potential sequel to the 1986 blockbuster Top Gun.

The image shows hotshot pilot Pete "Maverick" Mitchell, with his familiar calls ign on his flight helmet, preparing to take to the skies in a Navy fighter.

Of course, the original had Cruise with costar Val Kilmer as Iceman, Anthony Edwards as Goose, Tom Skerritt as Viper and Kelly McGillis as Charlie.

Top Gun was a seminal 80's classic, and whilst a sequel fits right in with Hollywood's obsession with reboots and sequels. He has experience leading a long-awaited sequel, having directed Tron: Legacy, and he has also worked with Cruise before in Oblivion.

Top Gun 2, which likely will have the title of Top Gun: Maverick, is officially happening over at Paramount. After all, that wouldn't make the movie about drones in the way that Kosinski was saying, but they would still be part of the story as these pilots have to deal with the evolution of their industry. Production just started for its July 2019 release in theaters.
