Top Gun 2 Gets Miles Teller As The Son of Goose!
Although the shooting is already underway on the upcoming Top Gun sequel, the cast is only now being finalized. Today, Miles Teller has been cast in the film as the son of Anthony Edwards' character Goose. Teller reportedly beat out actors Nicholas Hoult and Glen Powell for the role. Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer are both returning as Maverick and Iceman, and Joseph Kosinski is directing the film after having worked with Tim Cruise on the underrated sci-fi thriller Oblivion in 2013. Harold Faltermeyer is also returning to compose the score for the film, but no word on whether or not Kenny Loggins will record any new music for the movie. Top Gun: Maverick is scheduled for release into theaters on July 12, 2019.
The original film from director Tony Scott has young hot-shot ace pilot Maverick and his co-pilot Goose competing in the top flight academy in the country. Med Ryan also starred as the wife of Goose and Kelly McGillis played the love interest of Maverick. The movie was a huge hit grossing over $350 million at the worldwide box office. The film was also well-received by critics. The sequel will come out 33 years after the original debuted. The new film is rumored to follow young pilots being trained by Maverick and Iceman against very highly advanced robotic aerial drones.
