news culture The sequel to the heist movie that inspired the famous GTA 4 mission “Three Leaf Cover” is coming!

If it won no Oscar or Golden Globes, Michael Mann’s heist film Heat, released in 1995, quickly became cult. Featuring Al Pacino, Robert de Niro, Val Kilmer and even Tom Sizemore, it has inspired many directors, including those of GTA!

HEAT: the sequel to the cult film is coming… in a novel!

This makes already 27 years since the public was able to follow the adventures of the robbers in HEAT, with fantastic direction and memorable performances from true Hollywood monsters. Produced by Warner Bros, HEAT generated no less than $187 million at the global box office. While it has, over the years, earned cult action movie status, the reviews at the time were only good, nothing more.

But time has done its work and HEAT often makes the list moviegoers who evoke action films with robberies, chases, and drama. He has in particular inspired by Christopher Nolan for The Dark Knight, Alexandre Astier in an episode of Kaamelott titled HEAT, but also Rockstar Gameswhich clearly references the film in Grand Theft Auto IV with the mission Three Leaf Cover.

So when Michael Mann announced a sequel several months ago, the public was immediately inflamed! The expectation is slightly rfell when the director announced that it was a novel, serving as both a prequel and sequel to the film. Expectations gradually increased with the publications of Michael Mann, who did not hesitate to tickle the curiosity of the fans. Co-written with Meg Garner, this book will be published by HarperCollins, and we won’t have to wait very long since Michael Mann teased the release of the book just a few days agoaccompanying the publication of a photo of the masked robbers aboard the truck of the film.

HEAT 2 is coming soon

We now know that HEAT 2 will be published in English on August 9thbut the publication of the director questions as much as it excites the public.

The sequel to the heist movie that inspired the famous GTA 4 mission "Three Leaf Cover" is coming!

Soon the movie HEAT 2?

The latter having already spoken at length about the work, has he also implied the fact that his adaptation in the cinema will happen in the near future? Hard to say at this time since no announcement has been made, but Michael Mann has already announced its intention to carry out the adaptation film of the work during an interview granted to Empire at the beginning of July:

It’s totally planned to be made into a movie. Will it be a modest film? No. Will it be a very expensive series? No. It will be a great movie! (…) Heat is supported in popular culture. He is known. I could be wrong in thinking that the whole world knows about it, but when you see its success in the VOD universe for more than 20 years, you can see that this thing has its back. People are still watching it, people are still talking about it. It’s a brand. There is a kind of Heat universe, in a way. And that certainly justifies making a big, ambitious new movie.

Al Pacino has also given his opinion on this possible and probable adaptation of HEAT 2indicating that Timothée Chalamet (DUNE) would be perfect to embody his young character in flashback scenes. Al Pacino has indeed declared that Chalamet was a marvelous actorxx, and that he had “a great look!”. We can therefore say that the question is not to know IF HEAT2 will arrive in cinemas, but when! To date, no official announcement has been made to this effect. So be patient.
