Tom Cruise has confirmed that the long-mooted sequel to Top Gear is definitely happening.

Speaking to an Australian media portal, Tom said, "It is definitely happening".

Interviewed on the "Sunrise" show on Australia's Seven Network, Cruise said that "filming will begin probably within the next next year". "It's happening. ... You're the first people I've told". Bruckheimer reportedly has been planning a sequel for several years, even tweeting about a meeting with Cruise on the topic in early 2016.

Top Gun doesn't strike as a film that needs a sequel, but you're getting one anyway. Cruise played the conceded pilot, Maverick, who was a very talented military elite fighter pilot. Rumors that it could be happening first emerged when Bruckheimer tweeted previous year, saying: "Just got back from a weekend in New Orleans to see my old friend Tom Cruise and discuss a little Top Gun 2". Most recently, he hinted that Top Gun 2 was nearly a sure thing during an appearance on The Graham Norton Show in October 2016.

Later that year, fellow "Top Gun" star Val Kilmer confirmed that he would be in the sequel. "It's true", he said multiple times. The actor played the cocky pilot Maverick in the movie, one of the top students at a United States training camp for elite military fighter pilots. A year ago we we were treated to this lovely photo of Cruise and producer Jerry Bruckheimer together sharing that they were chatting about the film. The movie also snapped up an Oscar for Best Original Song.

Jerry Bruckheimer, producer of the original, had been dropping hints too.
