According to Moviehole, Geena Davis is interested in a Beetlejuice sequel. She talked about this in a recent interview.

In that film, the actress played one-half of a deceased married couple. Alec Baldwin played her husband.

"It's funny, [another journalist] just asked me about a sequel to Beetlejuice - which, though I haven't heard anything about it, might be interesting", Davis stated. "I would do that!".


She then pondered where the characters might go in another film.

"Thing is, do ghosts age?", asks Davis. "Wouldn't we be stuck in the age we were? Alec [Baldwin] and I would have to look as we did then - who knows, maybe we could? I better get in touch with Tim Burton".


There have been a couple of rumblings about a proposed sequel. At one point it is said that there was a script titled "Beetlejuice goes Hawaiian," that was written by Jonathan Gems in the early 1990s. Nothing happened with that project.

After that, Warner Premiere was talking about doing a sequel exclusively for the home-video market. That also never materialized.

Beetlejuice was released March 30th, 1988 and stars Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, Annie McEnroe, Maurice Page, Hugo Stanger, Michael Keaton, Rachel Mittelman, Catherine O'Hara. The film is directed by Tim Burton.

    Seeing as how Geena Davis' career is completely dead, she would probably be willing to do almost anything.

    beetlejuice is classic... trying to revisit that story would probably turn out badly, but i would still watch it, and chalk it up to "morbid curiosity".

    Kingdom of the Crystal Skulls was a good movie sue me for enjoying good movies and wanting to shoot my self with bad ones

    Emmytt. I disagree. I loved the first one, and thought Keaton was brilliant. However, they should never do a sequel. The time for that has come and gone. If they were going to make a sequel, they should have done so within five years of the original. There's simply too much evidence that sequels that come much later(15-20 years) are not of the same quality. Kingdom of the Crystal Skulls, the Star Wars prequels, Godfather 3, The Evening Star, and the last Rambo movie are examples of this. I'll grant that Rocky Balboa was good, and there are others as well, but for the most part I think they turn out bad. I only hope that the next Ghostbusters movie will fall into the second category.
