Miles Teller (“Fantastic Four,” “Divergent”) is set to star opposite Tom Cruise in the “Top Gun” sequel which is currently filming. Cruise is reprising his role as the hot-shot pilot who goes by the call sign ‘Maverick’.
Teller beat out the likes of Nicholas Hoult, Glen Powell and Dylan O’Brien for the key role of the son of ‘Goose’ (Anthony Edwards), Maverick’s former wingman whose accidental death partway through the first film becomes a major character motivator.
Joseph Kosinski (“Oblivion”) is directing the film which also sees Val Kilmer’s rival pilot Iceman return. The film is expected to be released sometime next year.
