Dean sold his on-spec script last year to Skydance, though the project really started to gain traction this summer when Teller envisioned the project as a follow-up to Top Gun: Maverick.

Taylor-Joy signed on recently, with Apple locking down distribution soon after, which wasn’t too surprising considering Apple has a first-time deal with Skydance.
