Warren Beatty Resolves Dick Tracy Lawsuit

| Filed under: Film FlickersLegal Matters

warren beatty wins dick tracy lawsuit

Waaaaay back in November 09, we learned that Hollywood legend Warren Beatty was suing Tribune Co. over Dick Tracy, because they were claiming that Beatty's "hold on the detective" had lapsed, after he had bought the rights to the franchise back in the eighties.

Now, U.S. District Judge Dean Pregerson has FINALLY reached a decision in the case in favor of Beatty!

Tribune Co. has been "stopped from reclaiming the television and movie rights to comic-strip detective Dick Tracy from Warren Beatty."

The rights are now completely Warren's, and he can do with them what he will.

Congratulations, Warren! Tread wisely as you choose what to do next with the franchise.

…And make sure Madonna is involved again if you move forward with another Dick Tracy movie. Thanks!

What do U think Warren Beatty should do with Dick Tracy? Movie? TV Show? Nothing at all?

    Madonna's character died, idiot.



  2. 2

    Warren who?



  3. 3

    The music was the best part of that movie imho. As far as what to do next with the franchise hop the Comic / Super Hero movie bandwagon with a younger cast in general.

    Beatty's Dick Tracy flick was a bomb. Its even more unwatchable now. Sad, because the franchise has a lot of potential.



  5. 5

    WB has had the rights to Dick Tracy for over 20 years. He hasn't acted or directed since 2001 uhhh when exactly was he planning on doing this?

    Make the remake, and star Adam Lambert, and some young hollywood starlet. Great way to make it
    new and exciting. Maybe Amanda Seyfried.
