While details about the production, including which other actors will return, the film will have the soundtrack composed by Harold Faltermeyer, who wrote the iconic 1986 soundtrack with Giorgio Moroder. Check it out below.

Cruise, 55, captioned the post with the hashtag #Day1, hinting that the crew has begun filming on the long-awaited sequel.

Top Gun was a seminal 80's classic, and whilst a sequel fits right in with Hollywood's obsession with reboots and sequels. But let's break down what we know about the sequel so far.

The 1986 action-drama "Top Gun" centered on Cruise's cocky F-14 Tomcat pilot and his romance with Charlotte "Charlie" Blackwood (Kelly McGillis), his astrophysics instructor at the Navy's elite Fighter Weapons School. For awhile, it was expected that Tony Scott would get back behind the camera, but the filmmaker tragically died in 2012, meaning the reins had to be passed to a new filmmaker.
