Back in October, Beetlejuice 2 screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith said that he had the blessing of original Beetlejuice director Tim Burton. Today we have news that Tim Burton may come back to direct Beetlejuice 2. Here's what the filmmaker had to say, when asked if he was considering Beetlejuice 2.
Tim Burton is considering directing a second Beetlejuice movie
"Yes. I love that character, and Michael (Keaton)
is so great in it. I always think about how great and fun that character was, so I just said to (writer) Seth (Grahame-Smith)
, 'If you have some idea about it, go for it, and then I'll look at it freshly.' In the past, I tried some things, but that was way back when. He seemed really excited about it. I told him to try some stuff, but he hasn't come back to me yet. Michael
was so great in it. I'm sure he'd strangely tap right back into it."
Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg came on board to write Beetlejuice 2 back in September. The project is still in early stages of development, but the prospect of getting Tim Burton and Michael Keaton to reunite for the sequel is quite intriguing.
Beetlejuice 2 is in development and stars Michael Keaton. The film is directed by Tim Burton.
