Reportedly, Kilmer’s slow return to the spotlight is due to the reason that the actor is all set to hit the big screen again in Top Gun: Maverick, a sequel to the 1986 classic.
It was last year when Tom Cruise gave an update on his friend and costar, saying it was “special” getting to work with Kilmer again.
“He’s doing really well,” Cruise told Extra.
Kilmer finally opened up about his cancer recovery to The Hollywood Reporter in an interview alongside his children with his ex-wife Joanne Whalley: Mercedes and Jack, in December 2017.
The article revealed about actor’s two-year fight with throat cancer had “taken its toll” on the family and noted that Kilmer had undergone a procedure on his trachea which made his voice raspy and left him short of breath.
