He said, “Youknow what, you gotta go pitch this to Tom directly”.’The director flew to Paris to meet Cruise on a movie set where he was shooting one of his Mission: Impossible films and was given a 30-minute window to convince the actor to return to Fightertown.He had a challenge on his hands because he found Tom wasn’t impressed at first.Kosinki added to Polygon: ‘We flew to Paris, where Tom was shooting Mission: Impossible, we got about a half hour of his time between setups.‘And I basically had 30 minutes to pitch this film, which I didn’t realise when we were flying over.

He is also a producer on the blockbuster.Speaking in a new interview, Cruise said he had always dreamt of being a pilot or an actor growing up, and when he was able to combine both careers in the original Top Gun, it was a “life-changing” moment for him.“All I ever wanted to be was a pilot or an actor, so Top Gun was a huge moment in so many respects, including my passion for aviation,” he told HELLO! magazine (via Contact Music). “It was life-changing for me.”He continued: “I got to actually fly in an F-14 jet which was a dream come true, and play a character I loved in Maverick.”Cruise then went on to explain that for Top Gun: Maverick he got to do more plane stunts than ever before.“The P-51 Mustang you see in the movie is actually my plane, so I got to pilot in those sequences, he said. “I also got to be in the jet fighter a lot more this time, which was thrilling. It was something I had been working up to.”Meanwhile, Twenty One Pilots singer Tyler Joseph has claimed that he was asked to write a song for the Top Gun: Maverick soundtrack before Tom Cruise rescinded the offer.“I was working with the music placement person for the new Top Gun on writing a new song for them and then I believe Tom Cruise just came in and just fired everyone,” Joseph told Californian radio station KROQ [via MusicNews].
