Slowly but surely, Beetlejuice 2 is making its way to the big screen. Seth Grahame-Smith, the author of the book Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and the screenplay for Dark Shadows, is working on the script. It was previously rumored that Michael Keaton and Tim Burton would team up again for the film, and now Keaton has confirmed it in an interview with MTV, saying,
"I've e-mailed Tim a couple of times, talked to the writer a couple of times, but all really, really preliminary stuff. I always said that's the one thing I'd like to do again, if I ever did anything again. But it kind of required Tim to be involved some way or another.
"Now it looks like he is involved, and without giving too much away we've talked to each other, and e-mailed each other, and if he's in, it's going to be hard not to be in."
This is incredible news for fans of the first film. I've been hoping this sequel would happen for the longest time. I hope they they end up giving us a great sequel. My biggest worry is Grahame-Smith writing the film, because the script for Dark Shadows was awful.
No plot details have been revealed yet. There are so many different directions they could take the story. Are there any things that you'd like to see happen in this sequel?
