There's No 'Top Gun 2' Without Maverick
Christopher McQuarrie, the proposed screenwriter for Top Gun 2, says there will be no sequel in which Maverick is not in the starring role. The comments come just days after director 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)
