Nobody outside of the production - let alone the writing process - even knows if Cruise's Maverick or Kilmer's Iceman will utter any of their famous phrases, like "I feel the need for speed" and "I don't like you because you're unsafe".

A follow-up to Tony Scott's 1986 hit has been in the works for quite some time, with Tom Cruise interested in reprising his role as United States Naval Aviator Lieutenant Pete "Maverick" Mitchell.

Well, guess what? Val Kilmer has been roped in for the second edition of the film as well which has been titled as "Top Gun: Maverick". Kilmer will reprise his role as Iceman (real name: Tom Karzansky), a rival to Cruise's Maverick, in the sequel to the 1986 blockbuster.

Kilmer was previously rumored to be joining the cast with a Facebook post writing, "not often you get to say "yes" without reading the script". I jumped the topgun...

"It is very much a world we live in today where it's drone technology, and fifth-generation fighters are really what the United States Navy is calling the last man-made fighter that we're actually going to produce, so it's really [about] exploring the "end of an era" of dogfighting and fighter pilots and what that culture is today".

It will be led by Discovery's Alex Kaplan, president and general manager of the new Discovery and PGA Tour venture. Since 2007, the PGA TOUR has negotiated all of its non-U.S. broadcast rights deals on its own.

Val Kilmer feels the need, the need for speed again. Kosinski also directed 2010's Tron: Legacy.

Top Gun: Maverick is now slated to hit theaters July 12, 2019.

"Listen, it's an iconic character that [Cruise] helped create", the film's producer, Jerry Bruckheimer, told ET past year.

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