Top Gun: Maverick–Jon Hamm and Ed Harris Join Tom Cruise’s Sequel

Jon Hamm, Ed Harris, and Lewis Pullman have joined the cast of Tom Cruise’s Top Gun: Maverick.

Joe Kosinski (“Oblivion”) is directing the Paramount film, a sequel to the 1986 “Top Gun,” from a script by Peter Craig, Justin Marks and Eric Warren Singer.

Jerry Bruckheimer, who produced the first film with the late Don Simpson, will produce with Cruise and Skydance CEO David Ellison.

This feature is set in a world of drone technology, exploring the end of the era of dogfighting, with Cruise portraying a flight instructor. Cruise posted a photo of himself in front of a Boeing F/A-18 Super Hornet.

Variety reported on Miles Teller (“Only the Brave”) plays the son of the Goose character and Maverick’s new protege. Goose, the co-pilot to Cruise’s Maverick character in the original, was played by Anthony Edwards.
