Tom Cruise returns as hotshot pilot Pete “Maverick” Mitchell for the sequel to the 1986 hit, which is expected to deal with the culture of unmanned drones and their rendering traditional pilots obsolete. Kilmer – who played “Iceman” in the Tony Scott original – had previously been spotted on the set of the production, but has now been officially confirmed to be a returning cast member.
Oblivion director Joseph Kosinski helms the sequel from a script by Peter Craig, Justin Marks and Eric Warren Singer. A release is set for July 12th 2019.
