Could we be one step closer to Beetlejuice 2 becoming a reality? Sources within The Wrap seem to think so. According to “multiple individuals familiar with the project” Director Tim Burton is officially in talks to direct the sequel. Burton spoke about the potential for a sequel earlier in the year saying “Those were fun characters, but I'd have to see what the script was like and if it was worth doing - I can't just make it because it's one of the worst ten movies of the year.” Well if the past is any indicator of the future, the script is in good hands with the writer behind Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Seth Grahame-Smith reportedly working on the script. It was back in 2012 that Beetlejuice himself, Michael Keaton, met with Grahame-Smith to discuss the possibility of a sequel, “We talked for a couple of hours and talked about big picture stuff.  It's a priority for Warner Bros.  It's a priority for Tim [Burton]” When asked if Keaton was just as excited, he replied “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 shit 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.” If greenlit, the project will be produced by the guys behind the original 1988 film, The Geffen Company, as well as Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg of KatzSmith Productions. Check out the trailer for the original Beetlejuice in its finest below. It’s been 25 years since Beetlejuice came into our lives. Is now the right time for a sequel? Do you want to see Keaton’s famous black-and-white-striped suit wearing ghost alter ego come back into our lives? Or should they just leave well enough alone? Let us know!
