The Iceman Cometh - Val Kilmer Joins Tom Cruise on Top Gun Sequel

The original, starring Tom Cruise, Kelly McGillis and Val Kilmer, grossed over US$353 million (RM1.4 billion) worldwide. But it appears Cruise and producer Jerry Bruckheimer were passionate about getting Top Gun 2 off the ground regardless, and Cruise's Oblivion filmmaker Joseph Kosinski is in the director's chair. In the original, Kilmer's Tom "Iceman" Kazansky and Cruise's Pete "Maverick" Mitchell were rivals (with Iceman telling Maverick "I don't like you because you're dangerous") but eventually begrudgingly earned each other's respect. Iceman's famous line to Maverick was: "I don't like you because you're risky". Kilmer's involvement with the sequel isn't a surprise, as he announced his desire to return as soon as it was offered to him three years ago. "It's true", he said on Australia's Sunrise morning show. "It's happening. It is definitely happening". However, Kilmer later updated his Facebook post, saying he "jumped the topgun" in making the announcement. Still got the moves! Though the two of them ended the 1986 movie on good terms, it's possible that old tensions could resurface in the follow-up, seeing how star Tom Cruise has described the upcoming actioner as "a competition film, like the first one". "So I think we would like to see what happened to Maverick for the last 30 years".
