Val Kilmer will star in upcoming sequel "Top Gun: Maverick," which will also feature Tom Cruise in the lead role.
The actor has been spotted around the San Diego hotel Paramount has been using since production began last week, The Wrap reported.
Kilmer famously portrayed skilled fighter pilot Iceman, a rival to Cruise's Maverick, in the original 1986 "Top Gun" film.
Joseph Kosinski, who worked with Cruise on "Oblivion," is directing the film with Jerry Bruckheimer returning to produce.
"Top Gun: Maverick," set for release on July 12, 2019, will follow Maverick in the present day as he deals with the rise of drone technology that is making his style of jet fighter flying obsolete.
