Val Kilmer says, "Yes!" to Top Gun 2

11.17.2015

Earlier in the year, Tom Cruise stated that he was still keen on making TOP GUN 2 if they could do it without the use of computer generated jets. While I admire Tom's affinity for practical effects in today's cinematic world, it's the story I'm more concerned about. Drone warfare is said to be a factor, and now we may have confirmation of a possible returning character: Iceman. Val Kilmer took to his Facebook page to say a few words and was more than enthused!

Val Kilmer on TOP GUN 2:

I just got offered ‪#‎topgun2‬ - not often you get to say "yes" without reading the script...

"It's starring Gene Hackman..." "Yes"

"The director is Francis Coppola..." "Yes!"

They aren't involved in this production. These are examples of what an actor says yes to - like Jerry Bruckheimer and Tom Cruise!!! "Yes."

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!!! 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...

Initially, folks thought that Gene Hackman and Francis Ford Coppola were actually involved in the production of TOP GUN 2, but Kilmer edited his post to reflect what he really meant; that they were just some people he had to say, "yes" to. It looks as though Bruckheimer and Cruise are still feeling things out, but with a few of the original actors on-board this early on, it's hard not to get excited. That volleyball scene is going to be hard to top...

so he was offered a role in the film? I remember seeing an interview a few years ago where he said he would do it if offered a role, but at that time he had not been offered one. Hopefully he'll take it seriously and slim down for the role.

He's not fat at all

In fact Val Kilmer is so skinny that many people think he's sick right now. Hopefully he's not but if anything he'll actually have to put on some pounds and bulk up if he wants to get anywhere near his 80's body.

Great news. It would be nice to see Kilmer become relevant again and for him to maybe get back into shape.

Eh, it's not like Kilmer has done anything in the past 15 years...

I mean he was great in the 80s and 90s but he is in Seagal land with his weight and his D list movies...
