There are no two without three. The Paramount studio began working on the third part of the successful saga of Top Gun and, logically, he hopes to be able to add again to Tom Cruise for the leading role.
The co-screenwriter of Top Gun: MaverickEhren Kruger, is already “officially” working on this new project for which Paramount is still seeking to convince director Joe Kosinski, with the premise of reuniting Cruise with Miles Teller and Glen Powell.
Released in 2022, Top Gun: Maverick was super successful for Paramount, with a collection of almost 1.5 billion dollars in terms of international box office. Furthermore, this second part was nominated for an Oscar for best film last year.
For all this, Plan A is whether or not to find a way to convince Cruise to dress up as an aviator again.
The film with Tom Cruise
An agreement with another studio
The news of the third installment of Top Gun It was known just three days after an agreement between Cruise and the Warner Bros. Discovery studio was made public for the actor to produce, develop and star in new films or franchises starting this year, under an association described as “strategic” by both parties.
Within the framework of this contract, the American star will even have his own offices for his production company within the company’s facilities in Burbank, Los Angeles.
However, This new contract does not have exclusivity clausesso the actor can continue making films with other companies with which he already has a long history (in the case of Paramount itself), with whom, in addition to being able to make the third of Top Gunis also in negotiations for Mission: Impossible 8.
El film original
The Top Gun The original premiered in 1986. Four weeks after its release, the number of theaters showing it, contrary to what always happens, increased by 45%. Needless to say, the film was a great commercial success, grossing $356 million against an initial production budget that did not exceed $15 million.
In 2015, the United States Library of Congress selected it for preservation archives in the National Film Registry, finding it “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.” The sequel (Top Gun: Maverick) was released 36 years later, in 2022, with enormous commercial success.
This new step in the saga of Top Gun It is explained because the industry came to consider that the Maverick sequel had “saved the cinema” after the serious audience crisis caused by the pandemic. Now Top Gun 3 It will be a reality, although not in the short term.
The date for filming the franchise is still pending confirmation. The production of the film and the actor’s schedule are full of commitments, so the premiere of The new Maverick could only happen in 2026 or 2027.
