Top Gun 2

When Tom Cruise posted an unexpected first look at Joseph Kosinski’s Top Gun: Maverick, something dawned on me. Had we heard any supporting cast announcements yet? Those actors who’d be given their wings and the opportunity to fly alongside one of cinema’s most daredevil pilot aces?

Now that Top Gun: Maverick is a reality, Loggins is working on recording a new version of the song for the sequel, and he might have company this time. Read More »
