Filming dates : what’s happening this summer

K.T Simpson



Summer in the North, Winter in the South – either way, there’s a bunch of films getting production going in the middle of the year. Let’s see what’s up!

Top Gun: Maverick

The long-awaited “Top Gun 2” is getting underway this July, with director Joseph Kosinski at the helm. Omega Underground has the scoop, reporting that Paramount/Skydance will get the project rolling mid year, with a release date of July 12th, 2019. Further casting news is still yet to be seen, but the film is said to explore Maverick’s role in modern military.

The Expendables 4

The fourth instalment of the “Expendables” franchise is said to start production in August, according to The Arnold Fans, who note a comment from co-star Randy Couture:

“I’m excited about Expendables 4. Right now, we’re scheduled to start filming in August and hopefully we’re able to stay on schedule. It sounds like we’re coming back to Bulgaria, which is exciting. I’ve spend a lot of time in Sofia and Varna and I’m excited to come back. I love the people (there), I love the food and I’m excited to come back.”

Franchise-veteran Sylvester Stallone will return for the flick, though the remaining cast have a big fat question mark over their heads.

Terminator 6

The same site has a comment from Arnold Schwarzenegger, from their interview with the “Terminator” star, regarding the 6th film:

“We are starting to shoot Terminator 6 in June to the middle of October, so I am in that. I am looking forward to coming back as the T-800 model. It’s gonna be great with Tim Miller as the director and Jim Cameron is kind of supervising the whole thing.”

Paramount is yet to announce an official release date for the film, which originally was slated for July 26, 2019.

Sonic the Hedgehog

Moving away from the super action films, the “Sonic the Hedgehog” live-action film will get rolling in July in Atlanta, Georgia, Omega Underground reports. The film was recently given a release date of November 15, 2019, just in time for a very Sonic-y Christmas.

Jeff Fowler is set to direct the film, and let’s hope some casting news comes soon. I wanna know who gets the title role! (I’m available for Tails, fyi).
