This film has been a very long time coming. Top Gun was released in 1986 so it's taken over 30 years to put this sequel together. I know, hard to believe given how sequel happy Hollywood is these days.

We don't know a lot about it but we do know the casting looks pretty great: Jennifer Connelly, Ed Harris, Jon Hamm and Miles Taylor are joining Tom and Val Kilmer. It's in post production now and will be released next year.

If they really can capture the essence of the original without Tony Scott remains to be seen, but seems like they're off to a fair start with those flying sequences.
