A small step forward perhaps, but maybe a notable one in the ongoing development of Top Gun 2. The last we heard on the project was when Val Kilmer posted he'd agreed to a role in the movie. That said, there's been little sign of the movie getting in front of cameras anytime soon.
Producer Jerry Bruckheimer, who of late has been working on Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, has given the latest update. And it's a simple one, confirming that he and Cruise have met up to discuss the Top Gun sequel. »
Such was the surprising success of Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman: The Secret Service that it not only spawned a budding new series at Fox, but its sequel has taken priority on the schedule of one Taron Egerton. Tentatively slated for a release in 2017, the actor’s involvement in Kingsman 2 has effectively placed Lionsgate’s medieval reboot Robin Hood: Origins on the back-burner.
There’s good reason for that slight delay, rest assured. In keeping with the true ‘bigger, bolder, darker’ spirit of movie sequels, Egerton himself recently teased that Kingsman 2 will take the successful, bloodthirsty template of the original sleeper hit and expand it across an international scope.
In attendance at the Sundance Film Festival to promote his role in sports dramedy Eddie the Eagle, Collider quizzed the actor regarding the status of Fox’s follow-up, which is currently eyeing a start date this summer – hence the decision to postpone Robin Hood. »

Over the course of his lengthy career, which somehow reaches all the way back to 1981 (seriously, the dude does not age like the rest of us), Tom Cruise has battled aliens multiple times, sucked blood as a vampire, and even belted out rock anthems onscreen. Though his resume is pretty light on horror, he.s helping to bring one of Universal.s genre classics back to the big screen with The Mummy, and now we know when we.ll see it for ourselves. Things are coming together for Universal.s latest attempt to revamp their back catalog of classic monster movies. Now that Tom Cruise, one of the biggest movie stars in the world, is solidly entrenched in the lead (there was some earlier back and forth about whether or not he was going to be involved), Variety reports that the studio has even set a release date.

Last month, we reported that Universal Pictures had entered talks with both Tom Cruise and Sofia Boutella to star in their long-awaited Untitled Mummy Reboot. Today we have a new report from Variety, which reveals that both Tom Cruise and Sofia Boutella have officially signed on, with Universal Pictures also setting a new release date of June 9, 2017, pushing it up three months from March 24, 2017. This upcoming adventure will now go up against Paramount's World War Z 2 and Lionsgate's The Divergent Series: Ascendant, while it would have only faced Lionsgate's Power Rangers in its old March 24, 2017 date.
No plot details have been confirmed yet, but the movie is set in present day, marking the first full adventure in Universal's shared monster universe. It was confirmed in 2014 that Dracula Untold's end credit scene, where Luke Evans' title character was seen in present day, serves as a prologue to the entire series, »
According to Collider, Cruise will indeed star in The Mummy along with Boutella, who made quite an impression as the slice-and-dice killer Gazelle in Kingsman: The Secret Service. Neither of their roles have been revealed, but it's believed that Boutella will play The Mummy, with Cruise rumored to portray an ex-Navy Seal.
Originally slated to come out on March 24th, 2017, The Mummy is now set to hit theaters on June 9th, 2017—the same release date as World War Z 2.

Something must be in the water over in Hollywood, because movie release dates are being shifted around left and right. First yesterday, there was news that "Star Wars Episode VIII" was pushed from May to December of 2017, and then there was news that the new "Spider-Man" flick will be dropped 21 days ahead of the previous scheduled date.
Now THR is reporting that the upcoming "Mummy" reboot, starring Tom Cruise and "Kingsman" star Sofia Boutella, has been pushed back from March 24, 2017 to June 9 of the same year, about two and a half months later.
As of right now, there doesn't seem to be any clear reason for the move, apart from maybe needing a bit more time to get things into motion. The only other film that was also set to release on March 24 of 2017 was the "Power Rangers" movie, and now that "The Mummy" is set to release on June »
