Val Kilmer: Star Says Yes to Top Gun 2 on Facebook

Val Kilmer took to his Facebook page this morning to confirm that he has been asked back for the long-gestating Top Gun 2, in which he will reprise the role of “Iceman.”

“I just got offered ‪#‎topgun2‬ — not often you get to say ‘yes’ without reading the script…”, he wrote on his Facebook page on Tuesday.

He also confused fans by appearing to say he would be appearing alongside Gene Hackman and that Francis Ford Coppola would be directing it.

He followed up with a further post which said: “Francis Coppola and Gene Jackman are examples of what an actor says “yes” to. They are not involved. So sorry for the misunderstanding.”

Tony Scott, the British director of the original, committed suicide in 2012.

He then edited his original post to admit he had got a little overexcited: “This is a long way off so calm down. This has been talked about for a long long time and being offered a role is very different from doing a role.

“I jumped the gun with my post. I jumped the topgun … An innocent mistake. It was just such a wonderful phone call with my agent …”

Earlier this year it was revealed that a script for Top Gun 2 is being written with Cruise’s character, Maverick, in mind.

Chief executive of the Skydance production company David Ellison said: “It is very much a world we live in today where it’s drone technology and fifth generation fighters.”
