In addition to general banter on how he makes films -- "I always think of making a movie like vomiting: I don't like to vomit, but I get to a point sometimes where I think, OK, I better go ahead and do this and I'll feel better" -- Beatty was pressed on the question of a sequel to 'Dick Tracy.'
When asked several times if he was going to don Tracy's fedora or stand behind the camera for a sequel, he danced around verbally, finally saying, "I'm gonna make another one," according to /film. Beatty recently won a lawsuit against the Tribune Company giving him the rights to the character, so that makes sense.
As for his role in the production, he was sly in his comments: "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."
Case closed ... for the time being.
