These rumors had generated significant buzz within the industry and among fans, fueling anticipation for Driver's potential involvement in the project. “Maybe. We're not talking about it yet. Let me put it this way – Adam and I got along great at Ferrari.

We have the same work ethic, which is pretty intense. We are good with each other and we had a great time collaborating". said by Mann "Heat 2" intricately weaves a narrative that functions as both a prequel and a sequel to its predecessor.

The storyline primarily delves into the lives of Neil McAuley, Chris Shiherlis (originally portrayed by Val Kilmer), and Vincent Hanna (originally embodied by Al Pacino) during the years leading up to the events of the first film.

Simultaneously, it offers a gripping portrayal of the fates and destinies of the characters who managed to survive the intense and dramatic events of the original movie.
