Tom Cruise‘s Top Gun sequel has been grounded for another year!
On Wednesday, Paramount Pictures announced the release of Top Gun: Maverick will be pushed back from July 12, 2019 to June 26, 2020.
Via Page Six:
The extra time will give filmmakers the opportunity to work out the logistics of presenting flight sequences with new technology and planes.
The sequel will be set in a world of drone technology and will explore the end of the era of dogfighting, with Cruise portraying a flight instructor.
I am most excited about former “Insecure” star Jay Ellis joining the cast!
According to Deadline, Jay will play a pilot alongside Tom Cruise.
