Paul Mescal has no time for IP adaptations other than Top Gun.
The Aftersun actor and Normal People breakout star firmly planted his desire to join the Top Gun cinematic universe.
When asked what film franchise he would like to join, Mescal replied, "I'll be a happy man." It's like that. It's a fantastic film.
John Boyega, a Star Wars alum, has shut down speculation that he might join the MCU, saying, "I want to do nuanced things." I want to donate my services to original independent films that come with fresh ideas, because I know it's really difficult to beat Iron Man in that universe."
Mescal isnt the only Hollywood icon to ponder the magic of Top Gun: Maverick. Quentin Tarantino claimed he loves the film, calling it a true cinematic spectacle, the sort that I'd almost dreamed of not seeing again.
Luca Guadagnino, the director of Bones and All, gave an endorsement for the Top Gun sequel starring Tom Cruise and Miles Teller.
Guadagnino said the sequel to Top Gun: Maverick, which is a film that mixes nostalgia and repetition, has the added benefit of happening  years later. Because now, even if the movie has deep nostalgia in the audience, you are there for the ride of Tom Cruises Maverick, who is no longer a boy.
Mescal might get his chance to star in the rumored Top Gun trilogy with the growth of follow-ups to 80s movies on the way, including the highly anticipated Dirty Dancing sequel, the fourth Beverly Hills Cop film, Mel Gibsons Lethal Weapon 5, and a Roadhouse remake featuring Jake Gyllenhaal.
