Is A Beetlejuice Sequel In The Making?
Claims has been spreading that Michael Keaton is more than ready to reprise his role as Beetlejuice. Keaton has already begun meeting with writer Seth Graeme-Smith to discuss ideas.
Graeme-Smith says Keaton’s interest is “Huge, he’s been wanting to do it for 20 years and he’ll talk to anybody about it who will listen.“
Graeme-Smith, who is working on the sequel with producer David Katzenberg, went on to say: “I don’t think we should do it if we sh*t on the legacy. He agrees. So, right now, it remains to be seen. I have a couple of story ideas, but we’ve very early out.“
Guys, we suffered through the cartoon. We think we can handle anything at this point.
The movie saw a pair of recently deceased ghosts (Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis) contract the services of a ‘bio-exorcist’ (Keaton) in order to remove the obnoxious new owners of their house (Catherine O’Hara, Jeffrey Jones and Winona Ryder).
We know – that’s an awesome cast. While it would be hard to get them together again.

This is all we want: Michael Keaton, being awesome, and being funny. It shouldn’t be that hard since he pulls it off on a regular basis.
Hey, if Arrested Development can come back, why not this?
