Top Gun: Maverick (Miles Teller to Play Goose’s Son) (July 12, 2019)

Tom Cruise is getting ready to head back to the Danger Zone — and he’s bringing an old friend along for the ride.

Sources tell Variety that Joseph Kosinski — who directed Cruise in “Oblivion” — is the front-runner to direct “Top Gun 2” for Paramount and Skydance Pictures. While no official offer has been made, several insiders believe one is imminent.

Paramount had no comment.

Cruise met with potential helmers prior to and while filming “Mission Impossible: 6” in London to ensure the “Top Gun” sequel was ready to go after production wrapped. Even with Cruise and Kosinski having previously worked together on the 2013 sci-fi action film, sources say it was Kosinski’s vision the sequel’s direction that officially won him the job.

“Oblivion” was a huge hit for Cruise and Kosinski bringing in $286 million worldwide and only seemed like a matter of time before the two worked again.

Cruise recently confirmed to a British talk show that the sequel was moving forward and would hopefully shoot at the start of next year.
“Its happening,” the 54-year-old actor added. “You’re the first people I’ve told. It’s going to happen.”

The thought of making a follow-up to the 1986 pic that made him a bonafide star has been on Cruise’s agenda for some time. The project has gained momentum in recent years, especially after “Jungle Book” scribe Justin Marks was tapped to pen latest draft.

Skydance CEO David Ellison and Jerry Bruckheimer, who produced the original, will produce with Cruise.

This latest project will be set in a world of drone technology and fifth generation fighters and explore the end of an era of dogfighting which made the original film so exhilarating. Other plot details are vague but Val Kilmer has gone on record that he was asked to come back to reprise the role of Iceman opposite Cruise’s Maverick.

While Cruise has worked with a wide range of directors over the years, he’s never afraid of reteaming with past helmers if previous relationships work out. After a successful shoot on Universal’s sci-fi pic “Oblivion,” Cruise was close to joining Kosinski on his racing pic “Go Like Hell” at Fox as iconic car designer Carroll Shelby.

The film ultimately fell a part but Cruise made it clear of fond he was of working with Kosinski and was open to future ventures.

Kosinski’s recently wrapped the firefighter action pic “Granite Mountain” starring Miles Teller and Josh Brolin with Sony releasing this fall. Cruise can be seen next in “The Mummy” which bows on June 9.

In an interview with Access Hollywood, he said, “I didn’t want a number,” he said. “You don’t need a number.”

He also teased the film in the interview, saying, “Aviators are back, the need for speed. We’re going to have big, fast machines. It’s going to be a competition film, like the first one … but a progression for Maverick.”

Kilmer Returning for 'Top Gun: Maverick'
Val Kilmer is returning to one of his most iconic roles.

The actor will bring back skilled fighter pilot (and beach volleyball player) Iceman for Top Gun: Maverick, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

Tom Cruise is also returning for the sequel to 1986's Top Gun, the film that launched the actor as a global star. In the original film, Iceman (real name: Tom Kazansky) was a rival to Maverick, uttering such classic lines as, "I don't like you because you're dangerous," before the pair eventually became friends after earning each other's grudging respect.

Cruise recently tweeted a photo announcing that production had begun (see below) on the Top Gun: MaverickOblivion director Joseph Kosinski will helm the sequel, which follows fighter pilots dealing with a world in which drone technology is making their old style of flying obsolete.

Jerry Bruckheimer, producer Tony Scott-directed original, is producing Maverick with Cruise as well as Skydance's David Ellison. German composer Harold Faltermeyer, who created Top Gun's memorable synth score, is also returning to the production. The project has long been rumored, and Kilmer teased in 2015 that he had been offerred a role in the film shared his excitement, writing on Facebook that it's "not often you get to say 'yes' without reading the script."

Paramount is releasing Top Gun: Maverick on July 12, 2019.

Kilmer is known for Top Gun, as well as Batman Forever, Heat, Tombstone and other hits. Upcoming projects include the Iranian-American comedy 1st Born.

Kenny Loggins Will Re-Record Danger Zone for Top Gun 2
Top Gun 2 is heading back to the "Danger Zone" with Kenny Loggins. The long-awaited sequel to the 1986 Tom Cruise classic recently kicked off production. Cruise is back in the pilot's seat as Maverick, but one question on the minds of many fans was whether or not Loggins would return to help out with the movie's soundtrack. It sounds like that's going to happen, as he's going to put a new twist on "Danger Zone" with a younger artist.

TMZ caught up with Kenny Loggins at the airport recently and asked him about potentially revisiting his classic 80s hit for the upcoming sequel. Loggins played it coy at first saying, "I certainly hope so," but then proceeded to dish some additional details. Here's what he had to say about it.

"I met Tom Cruise on Fallon and I asked him that question. He said 'Of course we have to use Danger Zone.' So I'd probably do it maybe as a duet with a young act. I'd like to work with, well there's young and then there's young...we have some feelers out there. Some pretty cool rock acts. The rockers that I'm interested in are male."

To be clear, Kenny Loggins wasn't saying he isn't interested in female rockers, but it's just that the ones being looked at to possibly collaborate with for this new take on Danger Zone are male. The singer/songwriter added, "Maybe do it his way or their way, depending on if its a band or a solo artist. So we'll reinvent the song, to a point. That's what I'm hoping to do." He wouldn't reveal any of the artists they're reaching out to right now, so it's really anyone's guess as to what contemporary act may be putting their stamp on Top Gun 2.

Danger Zone anchored the original Top Gun soundtrack when it was released in 1986. The single reached number two on the Billboard singles chart and the Top Gun soundtrack went on to become the highest selling soundtrack of the 80s and remains one of the highest selling movie soundtracks ever to this day. It's synonymous with the movie and it would be tough to imagine them doing the sequel without featuring the song in some way. Fans can only hope this new version turns out better than the Fall Out Boy Ghostbusters theme did.

Production on the sequel, officially titled Top Gun: Maverick, just got underway last week, with Tom Cruise sharing the first photo on social media to announce that filming was underway. The movie is being helmed by director Joseph Kosinski, who previously collaborated with Cruise on Oblivion and also is known for directing Tron: Legacy. So he has some experience bringing classic movies from the 80s back to life. Kenny Loggins also said, "I'd also love to do a walk on in the movie but that probably won't happen." Certainly someone could make that happen, right? Top Gun: Maverick arrives in theaters on July 12, 2019. This news comes to us courtesy of TMZ.

This part of the article annoyed me. What’s wrong with saying he isnt interested in working with female singers for this collaboration? People are so fucking sensitive these days.

“BOYCOTT KENNY LOGGINS AND TOM CRUISE AND TOP GUN. THEY HATE WOMEN. #METOO #IMRETARDED

No, assholes, he has an artistic vision for his god damn song and that vision includes a male singer. He doesn’t hate women. People are stupid these days. And you know that is why that explanation is in the article. It is to prevent retarded folks from jumping to conclusions.

It's probably cause two dudes serenading each other on a ballad about riding together into the danger zone sounds like gay code for meeting in a men's public toilet. Using a powerful woman of rock's voice someone like a Lzzy Hale would make the song not so fucking gay but gay is what they've committed to and there's no going back.

The female vocalist I thought of was Charlotte Wessels from Delain. Not exactly rock, though.

I would like to add: gay innuendo in a song is okay. Being gay is okay!

Miles Teller to Play Goose’s Son in ‘Top Gun: Maverick’
Tom Cruise has found his co-pilot.

Sources tell Variety that “Only the Brave” star Miles Teller has been tapped to play the son of Goose and Maverick’s new protege in Paramount and Skydance’s “Top Gun: Maverick,” the sequel to the 1986 Cruise classic. In the original pic, Goose, played by Anthony Edwards, was the co-pilot to Cruise’s Maverick.

Last week, it was reported that Cruise tested with Teller, Glen Powell and Nicholas Hoult for the role.

“Oblivion” helmer Joe Kosinski is directing the film. Jerry Bruckheimer, who produced the first film, will produce with Cruise and Skydance CEO David Ellison.

This latest project will be set in a world of drone technology and fifth generation fighters, and will explore the end of the era of dogfighting. Val Kilmer will reprise his role as Tom “Iceman” Kazansky in the sequel, which is set to release on July 12, 2019.

Teller, who received a BAFTA nomination for Damien Chazelle’s “Whiplash,” is also known for his roles in “Project X,” “That Awkward Moment,” and “War Dogs.” He most recently starred in the dramas “Thank You For Your Service” and “Only The Brave.” Teller just finished shooting the Amazon series “Too Old to Die Young” with “Drive” helmer Nic Refn directing.
