Top Gun 3, Miles Teller, Tom Cruise

It may have taken well over thirty years for Top Gun: Maverick to follow in the footsteps of the original movie, but one actor is hoping that it won’t take quite so long for Top Gun 3.

While it remains to be seen whether we’ll be returning to the Top Gun universe for another installment, you have to believe that Tom Cruise and Paramount Pictures are looking long and hard at Top Gun: Maverick‘s $1.1 billion box-office. While speaking with Entertainment Tonight‘s Kevin Frazier, Top Gun: Maverick star Miles Teller said that he’s had conversations with Tom Cruise about Top Gun 3, but at the end of the day, it’s all up to Cruise.

That would be great, but that’s all up to TC. It’s all up to Tom. I’ve been having some conversations with him about it. We’ll see.

Top Gun: Maverick director Joseph Kosinski echoed that statement prior to the sequel’s release. “It’s all about the story for Tom, and if we can figure out a way to tell what Maverick’s up to next, who knows,” Kosinski told Entertainment Weekly. Given the blockbusters that Tom Cruise has starred in throughout his career, it’s somewhat surprising that Top Gun: Maverick is actually his first billion-dollar movie, and that’s something that Miles Teller is hoping to use to his advantage. “That’s definitely what my team has been saying for these future negotiations,” Teller joked.

The official synopsis for Top Gun: Maverick:

After more than thirty years of service as one of the Navy’s top aviators, Pete “Maverick” Mitchell (Tom Cruise) is where he belongs, pushing the envelope as a courageous test pilot and dodging the advancement in rank that would ground him. When he finds himself training a detachment of TOPGUN graduates for a specialized mission the likes of which no living pilot has ever seen, Maverick encounters Lt. Bradley Bradshaw (Miles Teller), call sign: “Rooster,” the son of Maverick’s late friend and Radar Intercept Officer Lt. Nick Bradshaw, aka “Goose.” Facing an uncertain future and confronting the ghosts of his past, Maverick is drawn into a confrontation with his own deepest fears, culminating in a mission that demands the ultimate sacrifice from those who will be chosen to fly it.
