Since times have changed a lot and there are already many similar stories with different protagonists in other situations. That’s why he rejected all the previous projects, but in the end, the director Joseph Kosinski found the key for the actor to be interested in the project.
“I wanted it to be a rite of passage story like the first movie. Obviously, Maverick in that movie was in his early twenties and is now in his fifties. It had to be a different journey, but it was important that it be a journey for a man in a different part of his life. We think of Top Gun as an action movie, but I see it as a drama. It has some incredible action scenes, but there is drama at the center. “
“For me, the path to that was through this story of Rooster (Goose’s son), who is played by Miles Teller. That was what the story felt like where we could sink our hooks emotionally and what would make Tom excited to get back into this character. “
