Teller Goosed For TG2; Kirby Spins Fast, Maybe Even Furious
And in casting news today – Miles Teller has beat off (no, not like that!) Nicholas Hoult, Dylan O’Brien and Glen Powell to land the coveted role of “son of Goose” in Top Gun 2. The offspring of Maverick’s late best friend (the pilot formerly known as Anthony Edwards), Goose the younger will prove to be Tom’s er, maverick student in the long delayed sequel, which sees Tron Legacy’s Joseph Kosinski calling the shots, and which is now in production.
Going into production next month, is the first Fast spin-off. Another of Tom’s co-stars (see this month’s MI6) Vanessa Kirby has just joined the Rock-tastic Furious cast of Hobbs and Shaw, playing Jason Statham’s sister, who also happens to be an MI5 agent. Deadpool 2’s David Leitch is calling the shots on that one.
Both movies are opening next summer – Top Gun 2 on July 12 and Hobbs & Shaw two weeks later on July 26th
