Actor Al Pacino has revealed that he would be happy to use the de-aging technology to star in the prequel of his 1995 hit film “Heat.” 

Speaking with The Independent, the 79-year-old actor and his co-star Robert De Niro noted that they would love to adopt the new technology to make an appearance in the film adaptation of the “Heat” prequel novel, which is being currently written by director Michael Mann.

When asked if he would love to do the “Heat” prequel when the movie gets made, the Academy Award-winning actor shared that it would be really amazing to see himself younger in the movie. De Niro, who was also present there during the interview, confirmed that he would love to do that.

Both the stars used the technology for their roles in the new Martin Scorsese movie “The Irishman.”

The “Donnie Brasco” star also admitted that this was the first time in his illustrated career he got ready for a movie by having the dots installed on him. Pacino further stated that the dots became a part of the “preparation” and a form of “makeup” on the set.

The esteemed actor told the publication that whenever they are making a movie, it is all about accepting whatever is going on. An actor can do anything to make the film relevant. He also explained that he liked using the new technology after a while and it became a “form of preparation.”

“We had little dots on us, which I got to like after a while. Putting them on became a form of preparation. It was my makeup,” he said.

In July, Mann revealed that the prequel novel is moving forward and is on schedule for a 2020 release. Taking it to Twitter, the “Dog Day Afternoon” helmer stated that author Reed Farrel Coleman will be assisting him in the novel.

Pacino is busy these days promoting his upcoming movie “The Irishman.” The movie has already generated a lot of buzz around the world after having its premiere at the 57th New York Film Festival. It has already been labeled as Scorsese’s best work in recent times.

The film has also garnered universal acclaim and currently has a 96 percent score on review site Rotten Tomatoes.

The “Scent of a Woman” star also received the Hollywood Supporting Actor Award for his performance as Jimmy Hoffa in Scorsese’s epic gangster movie and is considered to be one of the top contenders for a Best Supporting Actor nod at the 92nd Academy Awards.

The film will be streaming live on Netflix on Nov. 27, 2019.
