In the summer of 2019, Tom Cruise will once again feel the need for speed.

On last Friday, Paramount announced that the long-gestating Top Gun sequel will fly into theaters on July 12, 2019.

Released in 1986, the Tony Scott-directed film raced to over $350 million at the worldwide box office.

In addition, Tron: Legacy filmmaker Joseph Kosinski will direct the film, EW has confirmed. Kosinski and Cruise previously worked together on the 2013 sci-fi drama Oblivion.

Earlier this month, Cruise revealed that he didn’t want the new film to have a number in the title, so it will be called Top Gun : Maverick , after his character’s code name.

“Aviators are back, the need for speed,” Cruise told Access Hollywood. “We’re going to have big, fast machines… It’s going to be a competition film, like the first one, but a progression for Maverick,” Cruise teased.

The plot has yet to be unveiled, but many have suggested that drones will be involved in some way. Others maintain that Cruise will play an instructor at Fightertown USA in Miramar and he has to try to bridle a young hot shot pilot… possibly Goose’s son? Will Val Kilmer be in it? Will there be beach volleyball? So many questions... Let us know what you think in comments section.
