Beetlejuice 2: Michael Keaton Confirms Talks With Tim Burton


According to MTV News, Michael Keaton and Tim Burton are both on board for making Beetlejuice 2.

The original Beetlejuice is a cult classic supernatural comedy in which Michael Keaton played the titular character. Rumors of a sequel have been circulating for some time, with Winona Ryder discussing the possibility and Seth Grahame-Smith working on a script. Now, Keaton has gotten into the mix as well.

"I've e-mailed Tim a couple of times, talked to the writer a couple of times, but all really, really preliminary stuff," Keaton said. "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."

Burton is busy finishing up his current project, Big Eyes, but doesn’t have anything scheduled beyond 2014, so there may be hope yet.
