Robert De Niro once expressed his desire to punch Donald Trump in the face, so it stands to reason that he would wholeheartedly approve of his old chum Meryl Streep’s message during her Golden Globes speech on Sunday night. In fact, De Niro sent Streep a letter following her withering takedown of the president-elect’s behaviour, as she received the Cecil B. DeMille Award – a gong De Niro himself won in 2011.

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.
