Just when you thought Quentin Tarantino's new movie Once Upon A Time In Hollywood couldn't cope with another A-lister, the director has now thrown Al Pacino into the mix.
Monday’s Today Show featured a reunion with the cast of the first two Godfather films. Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, James Caan, Robert Duvall, and Talia Shire all sat down with anchor Matt Lauer to reminisce and talked about their early jitters on the set. “It’s a great script,” Pacino insisted.
Michael Mann’s seminal crime thriller ‘Heat’ is getting a prequel. Mann, the writer-director of the 1995 “cops versus robbers” classic, has just signed a deal to create a new literary imprint for books based on his work, called Michael Mann Books, and a prequel to ‘Heat’ is at the top of their agenda. The ‘Heat’ prequel is said to explore the “formative years” of Al Pacino’s detective Vincent Hanna and Robert De Niro’s bank robber Neil McCauley and will feature other characters that appeared in the 1995 film including Val Kilmer’s Chris Shiherlis and Jon Voight’s Nate.
