Val Kilmer posted on his Facebook wall that ‘Iceman’ will return for Top Gun 2.
“I just got offered Top Gun 2. 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!!!” said Kilmer.
Jerry Bruckheimer and David Ellison are producing the film. Peter Craig, Justin Marks, Ashley Miller, and Zack Stentz have all touched the script.
“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 to The Huffington Post.
No release date or director have been announced yet.
