The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Val Kilmer will star opposite Tom Cruise in "Top Gun: Maverick" which is now filming.

Val Kilmer is heading back to the skies - or at least to the role that brought him there.

In the original Top Gun, Cruise and Kilmer's characters, Maverick and Iceman, respectively, developed a tentative friendship after working out their fierce rivarly on screen.

American filmmaker, Joseph Kosinski, will direct the sequel, with a screenplay by Eric Warren Singer (Only the Brave), Peter Craig (The Hunger Games) and Justin Marks (The Jungle Book). The original film, directed by Tony Scott, featured Cruise as a young naval aviator Pete Maverick Mitchell aboard the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise. Iceman is making his return with Tom Cruise in Top Gun: Maverick. It also starred Kelly McGillis, Anthony Edwards, and Tom Skerritt in pivotal roles. New tech such as drones make the pilots' jobs obsolete, but Maverick and Iceman aren't regular pilots.

Woman catches foul ball in beer cup, then chugs the beer
A San Diego Padres fan became a ballpark favorite Tuesday night during the team's game against the Atlanta Braves . Everyone around her encouraged her to drain the beer, but do you really need to be told to do that?

Back in 2015, Val Kilmer took to Facebook saying that he "just got offered #topgun2 - not often you get to say "yes" without reading the script".

When Top Gun first came out, Kilmer had only two major film credits under his belt.

The film is being produced by Jerry Bruckheimer for Jerry Bruckheimer Films and David Ellison for Skydance, and is expected to release in July next year.

In 1986, Top Gun hit theaters and brought forth a collection of what would be some of the biggest stars in all of Hollywood.
