Paramount Backing New Comedy Written And Directed By Warren Beatty

Briefly: Nope, it isn't Dick Tracy 2. (Or we don't think this is about Dick Tracy 2.) We have few details right now, but Paramount has agreed to make a currently untitled comedy that Warren Beatty wrote, and which he'll direct. Oh, he'll also produce and star in the film, too. This will be his first film in over ten years. (Bulworth was his last effort as director, in 1998, and his last acting job was Town & Country in 2001.) The film is expected to shoot this year.

More info on this one as it becomes available, but it looks like the turnout for the recent Dick Tracy event didn't hurt Warren Beatty at all. [Deadline]
