‘Top Gun: Maverick’ Flies To Summer 2020 With ‘A Quiet Place’ Sequel & More: Paramount Release Date Changes

15. 22 to Nov. Meanwhile, next November 2019, Paramount is moving two releases up by a week: Sonic the Hedgehog goes from Nov. 15 to Nov. 8, while Skydance's Untitled Terminator Project moves from Nov.
Jerry Bruckheimer is producing with Cruise and Skydance’s David Ellison. The script was written by Peter Craig, Justin Marks and Eric Warren Singer. The plot is mostly under wraps but it follows Cruise’s Pete Mitchell who is now an instructor at the Top Gun school and taking Teller under his wing. Teller plays the son of Maverick’s former partner Goose (played by Anthony Edwards), who met his in the 1986 original.
No director as of yet. Platinum Dunes is producing. In addition, Paramount has dated the sequel to A Quiet Place for May 15, 2020 which John Krasinski is writing.
Previous announced castings include Miles Teller, Glen Powell, Jennifer Connelly and former Top Gun alum Val Kilmer reprising his role as Iceman.
