Paramount has delayed its upcoming sequel to 1986's "Top Gun" titled "Top Gun: Maverick" to June 26, 2020.
Paramount says the delay is to give filmmakers more time to work out the logistics of presenting flight sequences using new technology and planes.
"Top Gun: Maverick," directed by Joseph Kosinski, entered into production in May with Cruise posting on social media a photo of himself in full pilot gear as he looked on at a F-14A Tomcat.
Cruise will be joined by Miles Teller as the son of original character Goose, Val Kilmer reprising his role as Iceman, Jennifer Connelly, Glen Powell, Monica Barbaro, Jon Hamm and Ed Harris.
Cruise's character will also be seen taking Teller under his wing as a new protege.
Paramount also announced a May 15, 2020 release date for a sequel to "A Quiet Place." Original star and director John Krasinski is penning the sequel.
