Written across the snap is one of the original film's most recognizable catchphrases: "Feel the need".

Once again, Tom Cruise is feeling the need.

Filming has begun on the long-delayed Top Gun sequel, tentatively titled Top Gun: Maverick, with Tom Cruise reprising the role that made him an global superstar. The image shows the Syracuse-born actor in a pilot suit, holding a helmet that says Maverick on it, and looking at a fighter jet. The story is believed to center around Cruise's character - Pete "Maverick" Mitchell - who is now a flight instructor at the famed Top Gun school.

U.S. entertainment trade daily Variety has reported that the sequel has the title Top Gun: Maverick and focuses on drone technology. Now, Maverick is back for a sequel three decades later.

The news comes via Cruise himself, who celebrated day one of the movie's production with a new tweet. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the sequel will follow Maverick and his crew as they deal with new technology.
