Thompson on Hollywood

While I remain skeptical that Warren Beatty will fulfill his intention to produce a Dick Tracy sequel--as announced at Thursday's opening night of the second annual Hero Complex Film Festival -- there will be more surprises in store at LAT writer/blogger Geoff Boucher's geekfest. Sunday I will turn up for the Iron Man double feature at Mann's Chinese not only to check out the Q & A with the always amusing Jon Favreau, but to see if his surprise guest is who I think it is: Robert Downey, Jr. Those two, as anyone who has attended Comic-Con knows, are damned funny.
