Deadline reports that Teller plays the son of Maverick’s former partner Goose, who died in the 1986 original. The plot has been kept mostly under wraps, but it follows Cruise’s Pete Mitchell, who is now an instructor at the Top Gun school and has decided to take Teller under his wing. The roles for Harris and Hamm are unclear, but the addition of them to the cast adds even more star power to a pretty great looking film.
