Hans Zimmer & Harold Faltermeyer to score ‘Top Gun: Maverick’.

 

Quote

Tom Cruise revealed in a video message at this yesterday’s Hollywood in Vienna concert that Hans Zimmer will be scoring the upcoming action drama Top Gun: Maverick. Hans-Zimmer.com has confirmed that the composer will be collaborating with Harold Faltermeyer, who composed the music for Tony Scott’s 1986 original film. Cruise has previously mentioned that Faltermeyer’s music will be featured in the sequel. Top Gun: Maverick is directed by Joseph Kosinski (Oblivion, Tron Legacy) and stars Cruise, alongside Miles Teller, Val Kilmer, Jon Hamm, Ed Harris, Jennifer Connelly, Glen Powell, Lewis Pullman, Charles Parnell, Jay Ellis, Bashir Salahuddin, Danny Ramirez and Monica Barbaro. Peter Craig (The Town), Justin Marks (The Jungle Book) and Eric Warren Singer (American Gustle) wrote the screenplay. Cruise is also producing the project with Jerry Bruckheimer (Pirates of the Caribbean, Armageddon) and David Ellison (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation). Zimmer has previously scored the Cruise-produced Mission: Impossible II and The Last Samurai, as well as numerous movies produced by Bruckheimer, including the Cruise-starring Days of Thunder. The sequel is set to be released on June 26, 2020 by Paramount Pictures.

Sounds like a perfect collaboration to me, although I wouldn't have objected to Faltermeyer doing it solo either.

 

At least we'll finally get a TOP GUN score release, even if it isn't the original we all crave. Hopefully, anyway.

My first introduction to Faltermeyer's music was not through one of his classic 80s movies, but through this horrendous remix featuring a bizarre frog with a dangling penis that inexplicably was a success on the mid-2000s:

 

 

Only years later I watched Beverly Hills Cop and recognized the theme.

Top Gun: Maverick Release Date Moved Up by Paramount

 

According to Deadline, Paramount Pictures has changed the release date for director Joseph Kosinski’s highly-anticipated aviation sequel Top Gun: Maverick. Originally set to debut on June 26, the Tom Cruise-led film will now hit the theaters on Wednesday, June 24. The film was previously scheduled to go up against Warner Bros. Pictures’ In the Heights film, but now Top Gun: Maverick will no longer have any competition on its new release date.

 

Top Gun: Maverick is set in a world of drone technology and fifth-generation fighters along with exploring the end of the era of dogfighting. Maverick (once again played by Tom Cruise) is now a flight instructor, who takes Bradley Bradshaw (played by Miles Teller), the son of Maverick’s late partner Nick “Goose” Bradshaw, under his wing. The film also stars Jon Hamm, Val Kilmer, Jennifer Connelly, Glen Powell and Ed Harris.

 

Joseph Kosinski, who previously directed Cruise in Oblivion, will helm the sequel, with Peter Craig, Justin Marks and Eric Warren Singer penning the script.
