Warren Beatty will argue in a forthcoming court trial that he’s held the rights to the Dick Tracy comic strip since 1985, and that the Tribune Co., which sees things differently, has no legit ownership clams at all. Beatty filed a lawsuit against Tribune Co. in May 2005, and last Friday an L.A. judge decided to put the issue before a jury. Beatty wants to make a sequel to Dick Tracy, which he directed and starred in, and which Disney released in 1990. I presume that at age 69 Beatty doesn’t plan to play Tracy himself in the new film…if he wins, that is.
