Paramount Pictures has set the Top Gun sequel release date for July 12, 2019. In case you don't remember Top Gun-go rewatch it, already-Goose, played by Anthony Edwards, was Maverick's co-pilot, though he died during the events of the film. Teller won the part over fellow casting finalists Nicholas Hoult and Glen Powell who all screen tested opposite Cruise last week.

Interest in Tom Cruise's long-promised Top Gun sequel, now titled Top Gun: Maverick, ballooned in early June when it was revealed that Val Kilmer would be reprising the role of of Iceman from the original film. Cruise is reprising his role as Maverick in the sequel. The plot is rumored to revolve around fifth-generation aerial fighters in the world of drone technology at the tail end of the dogfighting era. While the Hollywood star kept details about where we'll see his character pick up all these years later, he did reveal the film is "a progression for Maverick".

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.

"We can do nothing to stop this. What the actual nope". Two for symmetry. Okay, the posters are staying.

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.
