Tony Scott suggested the film would focus on younger pilots, a move that would seem to diminish the role of Tom Cruise’s famous character from the original film.
Regardless of whether Cruise stars in the film, we’ve yet to hear what role Anthony Edwards will play. Might I suggest "Moose," the lovable twin brother of "Goose," who meets Maverick while searching for a lost treasure map hidden in his dead brother’s helmet. It’s just a suggestion. Take it or leave it. (Vulture via /Film)
