Amer­i­can ac­tor Val Kilmer (above), who is known for play­ing the role of Ice­man in the 1986 clas­sic Top Gun, took to Face­book and an­nounced some ma­jor names who will be join­ing the se­quel to the Amer­i­can ac­tion drama film. “Just got of­fered Top Gun 2 not of­ten you get to say ‘yes’ with­out read­ing the script... It’s star­ring Gene Hack­man… ‘Yes’. The di­rec­tor is Fran­cis Cop­pola... ‘Yes!’ 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!”, he wrote on his Face­book pro­file (inset). Af­ter his post went vi­ral, a few hours later, the 55-year-old star again took to the so­cial net­work­ing plat­form and apol­o­gised for mis­lead­ing Top Gun fans. “Fran­cis Cop­pola and Gene Jackman are ex­am­ples of what an ac­tor says ‘yes’ to. They are not in­volved. So sorry for the mis­un­der­stand­ing,” he wrote. Kilmer went on to ex­plain fur­ther: “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,” he wrote.
