Heat director can’t guarantee a sequel will ever be made


Heat director Michael Mann offered a little update on making a sequel to the 1995 crime flick. The director even released a novel serving as a prequel and sequel, but of course, fans want a new movie.

Speaking with Variety, the director seems to want to make Heat 2. However, he also is indifferent to if it never happens, using the fact that he got lost in the story of his upcoming biopic Ferarri as an example. This will be his first film since the critical and commercial blunder that was 2015’s Blackhat, and odds are dependent on the success of the movie, Heat 2 might seem more likely.

In its own way, Blackhat had an interesting story of two men on opposite sides of the law, but it evidently flopped. Heat, on the other hand, is considered the best of Mann’s library. It was even the first time that we got to see Al Pacino and Robert De Niro side by side.

The tie-in novel, meanwhile, allowed for some closure as it took place six years before the events of the movie, as well as after. It was a big hit, ending up as a New York Times best-seller.

It’s still possible that Heat 2 might happen, but it all might fall apart if Ferarri fails. We’ll have to wait and see how things go and hope for the best.
