Look out Lake Tahoe, Tom Cruise is in town shooting scenes for “Top Gun: Maverick”

Tom is known for doing a lot of his own stunts, and based on some of the leaked photos on TMZ, it appears some of those stunts are currently taking place in Tahoe.

Some of those action scenes have him sprinting through the forest. Meanwhile other show him riding a motorcycle on what appears to be the runway at the South Lake Tahoe airport.

According to TMZ, “Tom already shot scenes in San Diego and Nevada, but production in Tahoe sounds way more intense — with cameras suspended between trees to capture Tom booking it through the woods, and lots of military aircraft are landing at Lake Tahoe Airport for the shoot.”

Cruise will reportedly be in and around the area for two weeks. for filming. The movie is the much anticipated sequel to the 1986 hit “Top Gun.”  Additionally, Val Kilmer is back to reprise his role as Tom “Iceman” Kazansky.  Newcomers to the cast  include Miles Teller (playing the son of Nick “Goose” Bradshaw), Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm, Ed Harris and Jay Ellis.

“Top Gun: Maverick” premieres in theaters June 26, 2020.
