Miles Teller to Star in ‘An Officer and a Gentleman’ Remake

Miles Teller is heading back to the armed forces.

The actor, who flew alongside Tom Cruise in Top Gun: Maverick, has enlisted to star in Paramount’s update of its 1982 romantic drama, An Officer and a Gentleman.

Temple Hill is producing. Dana Fox, who made a name for herself penning romantic comedies such as The Wedding Date and 27 Dresses in the aughts, wrote the most recent draft of remake. Matt Johnson wrote the original draft.

The original movie centered on a troubled young man, played by Richard Gere, who enters the aviation officer candidate school. There, he finds himself caught in the crosswinds of life paths, which include a romance with a girl from the wrong side of the tracks played by Debra Winger and the tutelage of a strict Marine sergeant, played by Louis Gossett Jr. Taylor Hackford directed the picture.

The movie proved to be a massive hit when released in 1982, grossing over $130 million at the domestic box office, an equivalent of around $420 million today. It also earned six Academy Award nominations, winning two: one of best original song (“Up Where We Belong”), one for best supporting actor, which went to Gossett.

He next stars with Anya Taylor-Joy in The Gorge, a romantic action thriller directed by Scott Derrickson which will hit Apple+ later this year.
