Michael Keaton is Interested in Doing A Bettlejuice Sequel
Back in September, I had posted that a Bettlejuice sequel could be in the works. I’ll admit I was excited about that one because I love the movie. Notice I said sequel not remake. Remakes annoy me because can you really out do an original?
Well it seems that a sequel could be closer than originally expected. Seth Grahame-Smith, will be working on the screenplay, and is currently working on his movie adaptation of his book, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. After that he will be working on a adaptation of Unholy Night. Then, he will get a chance to sit down with Tim Burton and start working on Bettlejuice 2.
And what was Keaton’s excitement level like?
“Huge,” the writer added, “he’s been wanting to do it for 20 years and he’ll talk to anybody about it who will listen. I really told him, I have a huge reverence for Tim and a huge reverence for that film in general. I don’t think we should do it if we [deleted explicative] on the legacy. He agrees. So, right now, it remains to be seen, I have a couple of story ideas, but we’re very early out.”
So it is only a matter of time before we hear those beloved words Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice.
Like I have asked before will we see Winona Rider, Geena Davis or Alec Baldwin? I wonder because ghosts don’t grow old.
