Beetlejuice Sequel is On

This has been talked about for at least a decade and Michael Keaton Has always said that he would do a sequel to the film in a heart beat. Well today we have been informed that Beetlejuice is finally getting a sequel!

KatzSmith Productions partners, David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith have just signed a two-year first-look feature producing deal at Warner Bros. While rights are still being worked out, one of their first projects is expected to be a sequel to Beetlejuice, the 1988 film that starred Michael Keaton as a ghoul hired by a recently deceased couple to drive the new owners out of their house. Tim Burton and Michael Keaton made the movie while they were working on the studio’s first Batman film. It also starred Alec Baldwin, Winona Ryder and Geena Davis.

The film WILL NOT be a remake; the intention is to reboot it by advancing the storyline of the original, which was done by The Geffen Company and Warner Bros.

Now go dust off that pull string Beetlejuice doll and prepare for the ghost with the most’s return!

    This is bittersweet. Beetlejuice is definitely in my top 3 all-time list (this may be obvious after looking at my name and avater). Anyways, I hope that they keep the same art direction and definitely get Elfman back on the score side. This should be interesting!!

    at last! i think they should’ve tried the original script, and make it more horrish. there not gonna be able to even replicate the original anyways. i just hope they dont use modern day cgi, i’d like to see some stop motion in it. either way it will be badass, with Michael Keatons’ return. cant wait!
