Dick Tracy may take to TV despite lawsuit

Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Outlaw Prods. partners Bobby Newmyer and Scott Strauss have teamed in a deal with the Tribune Co. to resurrect Dick Tracy and make him the centerpiece of a TV series. But whether Tribune really has rights to Dick Tracy is the subject of a lawsuit filed last week by Warren Beatty, who claims he has rights to the comicbook character. Nonetheless, the producers are proceeding as though they have properly obtained legitimate rights from Tribune. They plan to set a writer and then approach studios with a contemporary take on the classic square-jawed cop comparable to what “Smallville” has done with the Superman franchise.
