Al Pacino suggests Timothée Chalamet to play his role in “Heat 2″

The actor (82 years old) said, between jokes and truth, that he would like the young Timothée Chalamet (26 years old) to play the policeman Vincent Hanna, a role he gave life to in the movie “Heat” in 1995, if he ever gets to do a second part, because he believes that he is a “wonderful” and “very good-looking” actor.

Pacino, who along with Robert De Niro presented the 4K version of the police tape at the Tribeca festival, thus responded to a question from the moderator of a colloquium, and then specified that the idea of ​​having to choose his replacement seemed like a strange request.

He even asked the public that filled the seats of the New York theater in United Place to give their suggestions, before which, surprisingly, the proposal that was shouted loudest was the English singer Harry Styles (28 years old).

At the moment, a continuation of “Heat” has not been announced. -a film that did not receive any major award nominations, but which has become an icon in its genre-, but on August 9, director Michael Mann will publish the novel “Heat 2″.

A book that, according to the person in charge of moderating the panel, the journalist Bilge Ebiri, is both a sequel and a prequel that follows the life of the thief Neil McCauley (De Niro) and that of the detective who chased him throughout Los Angeles.

Mann, who wrote the original script for “Heat” in 1979, was unable to attend this almost hour-long talk dedicated to the film, but sent a video in which he explained that he was confined in Italy, after testing positive for COVID-19 .

One of the most iconic scenes in the almost 3-hour film is when the criminal and the lawman meet face to face for coffee and say goodbye, promising each other that if they meet again they will kill each other.

Both De Niro, who is 78 years old, and Pacino pointed out that they did not rehearse that scene – which was recorded with three cameras: two above the actors’ shoulders and one in profile – to make it “purer”.

Also, Pacino likened acting with De Niro to “playing tennis,” as the actor is always on the lookout to respond and, with his great performance, forces no “ball to hit the net.”

In this scene of more than six minutes, It was the first time that the two interpreters acted opposite each other, almost two decades after “The Godfather II”, a film starring both, but in which they never shared any scene.
