Michael originally wrote the script for Heat in 1979, which was used for a pilot that would become the 1989 television movie LA Takedown.

Heat was based on the criminal Neil McCauley and detective Chuck Adamson, which took place in the 1960s.

Five years later, he turned the script into a feature film and released the film on December 15, 1995.

Al and Robert made their first on-screen appearance together in Heat.

Michael previously mentioned his intention to adapt his Heat 2 novel into a sequel.

“It’s totally meant to be a movie. Is it a modest movie? No. Is it very expensive? [televisin]series? No. It’s going to be one big movie,” Michael said Empire in May.

It’s unlikely Al will return for the sequel, he told the outlet, as well as Robert and Val.

The reason why is due to their age, with the director explaining that they would be too old to portray their characters in the sequel in scenes prior to the events of the first film, according to the outlet.

Robert’s character was killed in the original film.
