Top Gun 2 Production Won’t Be Delayed despite Tom Cruise’s Injury

Mission Impossible 6’s production came to a halt earlier last month when Tom Cruise broke his ankle in two places during performance. The injury to the star delayed the shooting for at least three months which started rumors that another high-profile sequel, Top Gun 2’s production might be delayed to the actor’s latest injury. However, producer Jerry Bruckheimer revealed that there won’t be any kind of production delay for the movie despite the injury.

This latest announcement came during the producer’s recent interview with Yahoo Movies when he answered the questions related to the possible effect the actor’s injury might have on the Top Gun 2 production. Especially since the production is set to begin shortly after Mission Impossible 6 packs up, such claims weren’t particularly surprising. However, the producer replied that the production won’t face any problems. He said, “I think we’ll be OK. We weren’t planning on starting (filming) until January or February. I think he finishes his picture now in December so we should be OK.”

While it is good to know that there won’t be any production delay, not a lot of details regarding the plot is known so far. For instance, earlier Tom Cruise revealed that the studio is really happy in the way the upcoming sequel is going but rarely mentioned any detail. During his recent interview with Yahoo Movies, Jerry Bruckheimer played the same coy as he didn’t reveal any detail of the movie. At the time, Tom Cruise replied when asked about the movie’s title Top Gun: Maverick, “Aviators are back, the need for speed. We’re going to have big, fast machines. It’s going to be a competition film, like the first one … but a progression for Maverick.”

While there isn’t a lot of details regarding the movie, Eric warren Singer is currently working on the script of the upcoming movie. Given the success of the first movie, it won’t be surprising if the sequel lives up to expectations. However, we will need to wait few more months to find out more details about the upcoming movie.
