The film Dick Tracy hit theaters in 1990 and had an all star cast that included Warren Beatty, Al Pacino, and Madonna.
Twenty one years later, Beatty, who still owns the character rights is set to reprise the role of the famous detective.
The film opened last weekend’s L.A. Times Hero Complex Film Festival and Beatty attended the festival to talk about the film.
The 74 year old actor/director held a 90 minute Q&A at the event where he said he would most definitely be doing a sequel to Dick Tracy.
In March, Beatty won a court battle allowing him to retain rights to the character which he has held since 1985 when he acquired them from Tribune Media Services.
The LA Times’ Geoff Boucher brought up the sequel and Beatty said “I’m gonna make another one.”
“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,” he continued.
So when exactly is the Dick Tracy sequel going to hit the big screen? Well, no one actually knows. Hopefully it will be made before Beatty turns 90, because really, who wants to see a comic book detective wearing Depends Undergarments?
