LOS ANGELES: The sequel to actor Tom Cruises 1986 action drama film "Top Gun" has been slated for a release on July 12, 2019.

The sequel will release almost 33 years after the release of the original film, reports variety.com.

Filmmaker Joseph Kosinski, who earlier directed Cruise in the 2013 film "Oblivion", has been roped in to helm "Top Gun: Maverick".

The film will be set in a world of drone technology and fifth generation fighters along with exploring the end of the era of dogfighting.

Cruise earlier said that the title for the second film would be "Top Gun: Maverick" although Paramount Studios listed the title on Friday only as "Top Gun".

Maverick was Cruise's character's nickname in the film in which he played Naval Aviator Lt. Pete Mitchell.
