Val Kilmer is coming back in the top seat, Today he revealed on his Facebook page confirming that he has been asked back for Top Gun 2, in which he will reprise the role of “Iceman.” This is best news I have heard about the movie so far, It will be a blast from the past moment for me. He was brilliant in the Top Gun and seeing him after a long time on the big screen will be a glorious moment.
“I just got offered Top Gun 2,” he writes. “Not often you get to say “yes” without reading the script… We will all miss Tony Scott one of the kindest gentlemen I’ve ever met in the film biz, but let’s fire up some fighter jets again!!!”
Producer Jerry Bruckheimer previously outlined that the film will deal with the rise of unmanned drones and pilots becoming a thing of the past.
“The concept is, basically, are the pilots obsolete because of drones? [Tom Cruise as Maverick] is going to show them that they’re not obsolete. They’re here to stay,”Bruckheimer said.
No release date has been set yet.
