WHEN Top Gun: Maverick finally lands in cinemas all over the world on May 24, it will also play in a different way than planned.
Earlier this week, Twenty One Pilots singer Tyler Joseph told Los Angeles Radio Station KROQ that he was once involved in music.
He claimed that while he was writing a new song for the film, “Tom Cruise walked in and just fired everyone.”
Joseph explained: “You saw it again top Gun trailer has been out for like three years. There have been some revisions and I’ve been a part of them. “
However, Joseph said he hadn’t gone far in the production process, as he was brought in and shown a few scenes but didn’t start writing.
A source close to the production says Joseph’s comments are “just not true” and that Cruise has never seen any songs presented by the band.
The sequel to 1986 top Gunof which Cruise is a producer, has been delayed several times, at least in part due to the pandemic.
The first trailer was released in July 2019.
Just last week, Lady Gaga released a new song for the film, Hold my handwhich he described as “a love letter to the world during and after a very difficult time”.
He called the work with Cruise on the song and soundtrack for the film “a beautiful experience”.
Cruise also had positive things to say about the Oscar- and Grammy-winning artist’s song.
“It’s like that moment when things came together in such a beautiful way,” Cruise told James Corden this month during an appearance on The late show.
“His song that he wrote fit perfectly and really became the soundtrack and heartbeat of our film. Is fantastic.”
