How would you feel about the remake of a new Dick Tracy movie?

They already remade it in the 80's with Madonna, right? I'd wait awhile to do another. It hasn't been nearly long enough yet.

I'd rather see a remake of a property that hasn't been touched in an even longer amount of time, 50 years at least, a property that had the potential to be great, but didn't live up to it the first time.

When I was a kid it was a fun movie to watch.

As long as they keep saying Dick i don't mind, but doesn't Warren Beatty own the license or something? Unless he has a hand in it it won't happen.

Yeah, he still has the license. In fact, I think he actually made a no-budget ash can Dick Tracy movie some years ago just to fulfill the contractual requirement to retain the rights, just because he could.

Why? Are you making one?

They would never remake Dick Tracy. Kids don't know who that is. Plus they would fuck it up and put him in the future or something due to the TV wrist-watch not really seeming special with the youth today.

Dick Tracy is a dumb movie to remake. His name isn't that big to draw in a huge audience.

Most young kids don't know who he is, and anyone who does remember him is going to be nostalgia blind so they'll have whatever shit you do with it.

It's just dumb. A movie for no one.

That "no kids know who Dick Tracy is" point is moot. Not defending the movie itself but no kids know who the Lone Ranger is either. It flopped but it got made.

Possibly, but I believe the Dick Tracy series could be brought back and remade in a way that today's youth would enjoy it but still stay true to the originals.
