The likes of Miles Teller and Glen Powell are all expected to return for the third instalment of the hit movie franchise. Although the news of a new Top Gun sequel has only just emerged, The Hollywood Reporter has said "the reality is this sequel has quietly been in development since late fall."
They also said that fans should not expect to see the new Top Gun movie in the near future, because the legendary action-movie actor is currently working on an 8th ‘Mission: Impossible movie’, "which will keep him occupied until at least its release, currently set for May 2025."
This comes after Cruise signed a deal to develop and produce theatrical films with Warner Bros. Discovery. The movies that he will work on will also star him, with the deal dubbed as a "strategic partnership".
