A sequel to the cult action film Top Gun is in the works, with filming set to begin next year.
The word comes from Maverick himself, actor Tom Cruise couldn't hold his breath and broke the news live while on a promotional tour for his new monster movie The Mummy.
"It's true. It's true," he told an Australian morning show presenter when asked about rumours of a possible follow-up.
"I'm going to start filming it probably in the next year," he added.
"It's happening, it's definitely happening."
The original Top Gun, produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and directed by the late Tony Scott, received mixed reviews but was a huge commercial hit and eventually became a cult classic.
The film catapulted Cruise to the ranks of Hollywood's elite and has since, according to die hard fans, warranted a sequel.
Rumours that it could be happening first emerged when Bruckheimer tweeted a photo of himself with Cruise in January last year, saying: "Just got back from a weekend in New Orleans to see my old friend Tom Cruise and discuss a little Top Gun 2".
When asked about it, Cruise simply said the two were "trying to figure it out".
Now that it is "definitely happening", fans are starting to wonder what the plot will involve.
With Scott dead, Anthony Edwards' Goose out of the picture and Val Kilmer recovering from cancer, will the movie be basically "Maverick staring at a monitor showing the feed from a drone camera"?
"Top Gun 2 is about Maverick returning to the Navy because he's the only one who can get an old version of powerpoint to work," one user wrote on Twitter.
"Tom Cruise battles rude United Airlines flight attendants on a cross country flight," wrote another.
"Tom Cruise is now a teacher at Top Gun school and all the students are drones. he's the only actor in the movie," said LA Times correspondent Matt Pearce.
Others just expressed their wishes to see the iconic volleyball scene return but this time with "grumpy old men".
Whatever Bruckheimer and Cruise are cooking up, just "remember, boys... no points for second place".
