Val Kilmer Has Idea for 'Heat' Sequel Where He'd Kiss Natalie Portman

Val Kilmer has at last figured out how to make a Heat sequel without Robert De Niro. And, as with making a Batman sequel without Michael Keaton, turns out the key to cracking that nut is just adding more Val Kilmer.

Recently asked by Larry King what actor he'd most like to work with, Kilmer somehow found a way to answer with "I have an idea for a sequel to Heat."

"Here's my pitch," Kilmer continued, because no one stopped him. "You remember Natalie Portman in it? She's Pacino's adopted daughter, so she comes home and says, 'Daddy, daddy, I want you to meet my fiancé.' And it's me, because he's retired, and I come to Chicago where he's retired back to, and I'm gonna torture him, and then I'm gonna kill him. So, it's a mind game."

Kilmer went on to say he would "like that" Michael Mann return to direct the sequel, even if that desire is partially out of necessity, as "[Heat 2] can't get made without him." Just another example of the broken Hollywood system that won't even hand a director's genre-defining classic over to Val Kilmer, so that he might explore the delicate mind game of torturing Al Pacino to death.
