Tom Cruise loves the thrill of the chase.

Well, when it comes to his love of motorbikes at least.

The Hollywood actor was in his element while filming scenes on Wednesday for the anticipated Top Gun: Maverick, a sequel to his 1986 breakout classic.

With the wind blowing through his hair, the 56-year-old actor hopped on a motorbike while chatting with directors on the San Diego set. Dressed in his characters iconic military jacket and sunglasses, the actor revved through what appeared to be a residential street.

Its been 32 years since the first Top Gun propelled Tom to superstardom but the actor hasnt aged a day, judging by the first look images.

Directed by Joseph Kosinski, Top Gun 2 will revisit Toms beloved character, Pete Maverick Mitchell, and how the pilot has adapted to modern life in the military.

Now, here in 2017, the Navys been at war for 20 years. Its just a different world now, so you cant remake the first movie. It has to adapt.

That being said, I certainly want to recreate the experience of that movie, which gives you a front-seat into the world of Naval aviation and what its like to be in a fighter jet. The approach is going to be appropriate for the times we live in.

In July, it emerged that Miles Teller had been cast to play the son of Goose, who was Mavericks right-hand man and now becomes the pilots protege.

Fans of the original will see some other familiar faces in Top Gun 2, with Val Kilmer confirmed to return while Jennifer Connelly has also been cast.

Top Gun: Maverick is slated for release on 26 June 2019.

Mark Medoff, who won a Tony Award for writing Children of a Lesser God and earned an Oscar nom for its movie adaptation, died Tuesday at Mesilla Valley Hospice in Las Cruces, NM. He was 79.

Children of a Lesser God won the 1980 Tony for Best Play and ran for more than two years and 880 performances at Broadways Longacre Theatre. The show about a hearing speech teacher at a school for the deaf who falls for a deaf custodian was turned into a 1986 feature directed by Randa Haines. The film starred William Hurt and Marlee Matlin, who won an Oscar and a Golden Globe for the role. Hurt and supporting actress Piper Laurie also scored Oscar noms, and the film was up for Best Picture but lost to Platoon.

A revival of Children of a Lesser God played on the Main Stem for six weeks last year. Medoff also penned Prymate, which had a brief Broadway run in 2004.

Medoffs other feature writing credits include The Outright Winner (2016), City of Joy (1992), Claras Heart (1988), Good Guys Wear Black (1978) and the 1979 adaptation of When You Comin Back, Red Ryder? — which was based on his play that won him the 1974 Drama Desk Awards for Outstanding New Playwright.

Born on March 18, 1940, in Mount Carmel, IL, Medoff also had roles in more than a half-dozen films, including his penned pics Claras Heart, Red Ryder? and Santa Fe (1997). He also produced a handful of features.

His final film is Walking with Herb, a faith-based drama starring Edward James Olmos, George Lopez and Mary McDonnell. Medoff wroRead More – Source
