Glamovie.com – “Top Gun: Maverick” has started the production process since the beginning of July. Therefore, it is not surprising that Paramount Pictures continues to add to the list of players who will accompany Tom Cruise in this “Top Gun” sequel.
Previously, two actors had been confirmed to join this sequel project. Both are Val Kilmer who was involved in the previous series, and Miles Teller who surprisingly managed to get an important role in this sequel.
Miles will play the son of Goose, previously played by Anthony Edwards.
Goose is Pete’s “Maverick” Mitchell (Tom Cruise) friend in his first series. However, because the character of Goose is said to have died in the film “Top Gun”, then Miles will certainly try to revive the legacy of the glory of the father in this sequel.
Now, Paramount Pictures also announced a row of other actors and actresses who are preparing to show the quality of their acting in “Top Gun: Maverick”.
Reported by Deadline on Friday (24/8), the players confirmed to join this project are Thomasin McKenzie, Charles Parnell, Jay Ellis, Bashir Salahuddin, Danny Ramirez, and Monica Barbaro. In addition, there are also Jon Hamm, Ed Harris and Lewis Pullman who joined the project.
But the characters they will play are still mysterious.
“Top Gun: Maverick” is a sequel to “Top Gun” which was released in 1986, under the direction of director Tony Scott. At that time, “Top Gun” successfully generated revenues of US $ 357 million globally.
The film also recorded winning a number of prestigious awards.
But unfortunately, the sudden death of Tony Scott on August 19, 2012 made the film’s sequel plan always delayed. Until finally, Tom now collaborated with Joseph Kosinski in “Top Gun: Maverick”.
Joseph Kosinski is known after directing a number of popular films such as “Only the Brave” and “Oblivion”.
Just like the first series, this film will again raise the theme of jet airplanes and adventure in space. But this time, “Top Gun: Maverick” will be set in a modern world that has been “mastered” by advanced technology.
This project will certainly bring back the nostalgia of the film about the action of fighter pilots.
Because it is set in a modern world, the Maverick figure played by Tom is unlikely to be behind the cockpit of a fighter again. The reason is, he has become an instructor at a special flight school that prepares young pilots.
Meanwhile, besides being a cast, Tom Cruise will also sit in the producer chair with Jerry Bruckheimer and David Ellison. While the screenplay was written by Christopher McQuarrie, Peter Craig, Ashley Miller, Zack Stentz and Justin Marks.
The plan, “Top Gun: Maverick” will begin to be released on July 12, 2019. (Glamovie).
