An Officer and a Gentleman is being revived with Miles Teller as its leading man

Love STILL lifts us up where we belong!

Love will continue to lift up fans of An Officer and a Gentleman, upon news that the eighties classic is being revived by Paramount.

Deadline announced in June that the film is being rebooted, with Miles Teller set to take on the role that catapulted Richard Gere to stardom.

The 1982 film featured Gere as Zack Mayo, an introvert who, amid his brutal Navy Officer training, finds love with local Paula Pokrifki (Debra Winger).

An Officer and a Gentleman was such a hit that it nabbed seven Academy Award nominations.

It ultimately won Best Original Song with Up Where We Belong. Meanwhile, Louis Gossett Jr nabbed Best Actor in a Supporting Role, making him the first Black person to do so.

Paramount eyed Miles Teller for lead role following Top Gun success

Teller rose to great acclaim as Bradley “Rooster” Bradshaw in Top Gun: Maverick upon its 2022 release.

As such, Paramount presidents were keen to lock in the heartthrob for their latest reboot, per Deadline.

Since the Top Gun sequel raked in $1.4 billion at the global office, the studio and the actor have reportedly “been in constant conversations over what that next project could be”.

And we absolutely love this pairing!

Most recently, Teller wrapped filming on two major projects, including Apple Studios’ The Gorge.

The second being the Michael Jackson biopic Michael, in which he stars as Jackson’s lawyer, John Branca.

There is no word yet as to when An Officer and a Gentleman will begin production.
