Sounds Like Val Kilmer's Returning For The TOP GUN Sequel, After All

Iceman's famous line to Maverick was: "I don't like you because you're risky". The original, starring Tom Cruise, Kelly McGillis and Val Kilmer, grossed over US$353 million (RM1.4 billion) worldwide. The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Val Kilmer will star opposite Tom Cruise in "Top Gun: Maverick" which is now filming.

Tom Cruise has found a familiar wingman for Top Gun 2.

Joseph Kosinski is set to direct Top Gun 2 from a scriupt by Peter Craig, Justin Marks and Eric Warren Singer.

In Top Gun: Maverick, Pete "Maverick" Mitchell is back in action as an instructor at the Top Gun training base.

The film was later parodied in the 1991 spoof Hot Shots! with Charlie Sheen and Cary Elwes as his rival.

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer has stated that the Top Gun sequel would have Cruise returning to his role as Maverick and having to deal with a very big problem. Harold Faltermeyer, the composer who created Top Gun's legendary theme music, is also returning to the production. With Kilmer set to return, the only question that still remains is whether or not the soundtrack will once again feature the music of Kenny Loggins. There's no word if other cast members from the 1986 film will join the sequel. Kilmer also more-or-less confirmed this particular rumor on Facebook months ago, only to offer a halfhearted retraction after setting off a firestorm of excitement among Top Gun megafans. The much awaited film is slated to hit the screens on July 12, 2019.
