'Beetlejuice 2' Photo Announces Writing Has Begun

Seth Grahame-Smith posted a tease that this highly-anticipated sequel is finally moving forward.
Beetlejuice 2 screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith posted a fun photo on his Twitter and Instagram accounts today, hinting that writing has begun on this highly-anticipated sequel. (Either that, or the writer just happens to wear a Beetlejuice suit when he works). Either way, check out the photo below, then read on for more details.

Beetlejuice 2 Script Photo


Seth Grahame-Smith and his writing partner David Katzenberg were hired back in September 2011 to write the script for this sequel that has been in development for years. We reported February 2012 that Beetlejuice star Michael Keaton was in negotiations to return as the ghost with the most, although no other cast members have been confirmed. Beetlejuice director Tim Burton has hinted that he may come back to direct, but it's too early to tell at this stage.

Beetlejuice 2 is in development and stars Michael Keaton. The film is directed by Tim Burton.

    @themoviefanatic Yea he'll come back, I just hope the studio doesnt try to give him a low paycheck to save on budget. Yea its pretty funny when you here that scene, it takes me back to Beetlejuice when I hear it

    @SherlockHolmes2009 Well that is good to hear. I'm assuming he still want to play the role again when the time comes, even after saying so in 2008 that he wanted to play the role again. I didn't realize that before about him sounding like Beetlejuice, when playing Batman in that scene of Batman.

    @themoviefanatic Oh I have no doubt hell come back, its really all about sitting down and talking about it and when Keatons available to do it. Keatons stated many times that Beetlejuice was his favorite role and I think in 2008 he said he wanted to play the role again. If you watch BATMAN with Jack Nicholson as the Joker when Joker, Bruce, and Vicki Vale are in Vicki Vales apartment when Bruce tries to act crazy you hear alittle bit of Beetlejuice when he speaks

    I'm hoping this is going to have about the same cast with a new problem or something. I just hope they don't ruin a great childhood movie of mine with a bad sequel
