The 82-year-old Hollywood icon described the young star as a “wonderful actor” with “great looks” during a recent interview at the Tribeca Film Festival.

And while a prequel for the fan-favorite film is not in the works just yet, writer and director Michael Mann previously confirmed that he would publish ‘Heat 2,’ which is now set to be released August 9 and has been said to be a prequel/sequel novel.

The writer declared that the upcoming book will include events surrounding the characters before and after the events of the film. “It’s been my intention for a long time to do the further stories of Heat,” Deadline reported, “There was always a rich history or back-story about the events in these people’s lives before 1995 in Heat and projection of where their lives would take them after.”
