Tom Cruise has unveiled the title for the long-awaited sequel to Top Gun.
Plans for the sequel hit the news last week when Tom Cruise revealed that it would be getting underway in the next year and the star has now revealed the title.
Speaking to Access Hollywood, Cruise said that the new movie will be titled Top Gun: Maverick.
Joseph Kosinski, best known for director Tron: Legacy, is expected to take charge of the sequel, which will reportedly be set in a world of drone technology and fifth generation fighters and will explore the end of an era of dogfighting, a key feature of the original film.
Top Gun was released in 1986 and starred Cruise, Val Kilmer and Kelly McGillis and told the story of a group of students at the United States Navy's elite fighter weapons school, who compete to be best in the class.
