Dick Tracy Sequel in the Works

10 June 2011 10:12 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Actor/director Warren Beatty screened his 1990 comic strip adaptation Dick Tracy last night in Hollywood, where he revealed a sequel is still in motion. Here's what he had to say at the Q&A session following the movie.

"When you're really doing good work is when you don't know you're working, and when something just occurs to you, and you go, 'Oh, of course.' I think it's dumb to talk about movies before you make them. I just don't do it. It gives you a reason to avoid making them.""

Warren Beatty declined to provide any plot details, casting possibilities, or a timeline when we might see a Dick Tracy sequel go into production. He also said a new remastered Blu-ray of Dick Tracy is in motion, although he wouldn't say when that would hit the shelves.

Actor Warren Beatty prevailed in his ongoing legal battle with Tribune Co. over the movie rights to the Dick Tracy comic strip.

Warren Beatty obtained the rights to Dick Tracy in 1985 from Tribune Co., which he used to star in, direct and produce the 1990 Dick Tracy movie. There is a clause in Warren Beatty's agreement with Tribune that the rights would revert back to Tribune if he wasn't using them for a movie or TV project.

At issue was the 2009 TV special which featured Warren Beatty dressed in character as Dick Tracy, answering questions from film critic Leonard Maltin. The judge ruled this special provided adequate cause for Warren Beatty to retain the rights, even though the special only aired once on the Turner Classic Movies channel in July 2009.
