Quentin Tarantino was a longtime admirer of Hollywood director Tony Scott. The couple had the chance to work together when the latter realized true romance in 1993, whose screenplay was written by the former.

With the visionary sequel now a reality, Tarantino couldn’t contain his excitement at its unprecedented brilliance. He claimed,

Tarantino vehemently enjoyed Joseph Kosinski’s directorial debut, Top Gun: Maverick saying it was as close as it gets to a real Tony Scott movie. As for Kosinski, it was a touch scenario when the director approached his protagonist for the sequel role.

However, a 30-minute pitch from the director gave Cruise the impetus to land his Palme d’Or winning role. Kosinski’s vision for the film was incredibly revering for Tony Scott. And that was evident in its cinematography which it played down to the roots to match a film directed by Scott while still staying true to the narrative that the original Superior gun overwhelmed the audience.

About the director of Top Gun: MaverickQuentin Tarantino had as much to say as the classic sequel itself.

“[Director Joseph Kosinski] does a great job. The respect and love for Tony was in every picture. It was almost in every decision. It was consciously just there, but in this really cool way that was really respectful. And I think it was in every decision Tom [Cruise] done in the movie.
