Tim Burton’s BEETLEJUICE Sequel Is “Closer Than Ever”
We’ve been hearing about a Beetlejuice sequel since 2010 when Michael Keaton said that he wanted it to happen. Four years later the actor says that he’s still up for it. The script for the sequel is being developed by Seth Grahame-Smith, author of the book Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, and director Tim Burton made it a top priority of his.
ComingSoon.net had the opportunity to talk with Burton while he was doing press for his upcoming movie Big Eyes. During the interview they asked him about the long-discussed sequel to Beetlejuice, and this is what he told them:
“It’s a character that I love and I miss and I miss actually working with Michael. There’s only one Betelgeuse. We’re working on a script and I think it’s probably closer than ever and I’d love to work with him again.”
It’s great know that they are still pushing forward on the project, and that it’s closer than ever to happening. This has been a solid couple of years for Keaton who had roles in Robocop and Need For Speed and also gave an Oscar-worthy performance in Birdman. It would be simply amazing to see him reprise his role as the ghost with the most.
If there’s one sequel that needs to happen soon, it’s this one.
