After recently winning the film rights to the character from Tribune Co., the veteran actor and director revealed his plans for a follow-up to the 1990 project and it's home release.
Warren Beatty produced, directed, and starred in the original comic book adapted film, which features supporting roles from Al Pacino, Dustin Hoffman, Madonna, Glenne Headly, and Charlie Korsmo. Dick Tracy depicts the detective's his conflicts with crime boss Alphonse "Big Boy" Caprice as well as his love relationships with Breathless Mahoney and Tess Truehart and his upbringing of "The Kid".
At the LA Times Hero Complex Film Festival last night, Beatty revealed a few minor details about his plans to bring Dick Tracy back to audiences.
When asked if a sequel was on the way:
“I’m gonna make another one [but] I think it’s dumb to talk about movies before you make them. I just don’t do it. It gives you a perfect excuse to avoid making them. The more you talk about it, the longer it’s hidden."
If the sequel employ the same practical effects from the first film or go digital:
"That’s a conversation I have with my [production team] and the conversation goes on and on and on. I can tell you that the matte paintings [from the first film], they move me."
Beatty also confirmed that a remastered Blu-ray of the 1990 film is in the works, but didn't share anymore details about it.
