"I feel the need..."

It's been nearly 32 years since Tom Cruise donned his Naval Aviator jumpsuit, but Top Gun is finally getting a sequel

The actor shared a poster confirming that filming has begun on the long awaited Top Gun 2.

Posting a teaser picture with a famous quote from the original movie, he captioned it "Day 1", implying that the first day of shooting has started.

Cruise also tagged producer Jerry Bruckheimer and Skydance Media, who are assumed to be behind the sequel.

The film is thought to be called Top Gun: Maverick, and will be set in a world of drone technology.

The Hollywood actor told Australian show Sunrise last year: “It’s true. I’m going to start probably in the next year. I know, it’s happening. It’s definitely happening. You’re the first people I’ve said it to – you asked me and so I’m telling you.”

Expect to see everyone dressing as wingmen once again before you know it.
