Taylor Lautner has openly expressed wanting to follow in Tom Cruise’s footsteps. Could the ‘Top Gun’ remake be his shot?
Tom Cruise is actively talking about a Top Gun remake or sequel and now everyone is dying to know if Taylor Lautner — who has been compared to the A-list action star since he came onto the scene as Jacob in Twilight — will be the next Maverick.
Early last year, rumors swirled that Taylor, 19, was in talks to do a remake of sorts. However, the buzz disappeared and didn’t resurface until his first major action film, Abduction, hit theaters in September. Unfortunately for Taylor, Abduction flopped — with both critics AND the box office.
Even though his film wasn’t a massive hit, we don’t think Taylor should be written off as a leading man just yet. Plus, now Tom has confirmed he’s seriously considering the remake, which means Taylor has some time to prove himself.
Do YOU think Taylor would be perfect for Top Gun?
