Joseph claimed the project came to a halt when Tom Cruise “fired everyone”.
“You know, I was working with the – I don’t even know if I’m even supposed to say this, whatever – I was working with the music placement manager for the new ‘Top Gun’ on writing a new song for them ,” Joseph told radio station KROQ.
“And then I think Tom Cruise came along and kicked everybody out.”

Joseph noted that there were a few “revisions” throughout filming, saying, “The trailer’s been out for about three years, so there were a few revisions, and I was one of them. They have moved on.”
“Top Gun: Maverick” will premiere on May 24 after delays due to the coronavirus pandemic. Cruise recently showed up at the world premiere in a helicopter.
Although Joseph saw some scenes, he hadn’t actually started writing music for the soundtrack when he was “fired”.

“I saw a few scenes,” he explained. “They brought me in to show me scenes and stuff. I actually don’t think I started writing.”
“It was actually pretty soon after they brought me in to show me parts of the movie and what they were looking for and stuff that I learned there was like a big swap. “
A representative for Cruise did not respond to Fox News Digital’s immediate request for comment.
