According to a new report from Deadline, Whiplash star Miles Teller will be joining the Top Gun: Maverick. In the original film, Goose (played by Anthony Edwards) was Maverick's co-pilot before tragically dying.
Top Gun: Maverick will come to theaters on July 12, 2019. Kosinski also worked with Teller on the firefighter film Only the courageous, where Teller starred alongside Josh Brolin, so it makes sense that Teller would be joining his latest production. The long in development sequel is said to have a plot revolving around drone technology as it explores the end of an era for dogfighting and fighter pilots. As for who else is in the cast, it was previously revealed that Val Kilmer would be returning to reprise his role as Maverick's arch-nemesis, Tom "Iceman" Kazansky. Although the title Top Gun: Maverick floated around briefly, the film is now without an official title.
How excited you'll be about all this will depend on how excited you are about Miles Teller in general, or the idea of a Top Gun sequel.More news: Walmart's impeach Trump clothing draws social media outrage

"Day 1", he captioned the snap. Do you think he fits the bill as a son of Goose, and do you see this as a natural progression of the story? "Nothing. Not even the midterms", one Top Gun fan wrote.
Miles also took to Twitter after the casting decision was made. "What the actual nope".
Actors Glen Powell and Nicholas Hoult had been up for the much sought-after part, but Teller won out. Two for symmetry. Okay, the posters are staying, ' Glen tweeted along with a link to the article. He just finished shooting the Amazon series "Too Old to Die Young" with "Drive" director Nic Refn directing.
