Tim Burton Hints at Beetlejuice 2 Involvement

BeetlejuiceTim Burton says he might work on a Bettlejuice sequel if the script is "interesting."

The filmmaker helmed the original horror movie - which starred Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, and Winona Ryder - in 1988 and he has hinted he could return to direct a follow up if Seth Grahame-Smith comes up with a script he likes.

"If it was interesting. Although, I don't know if I would ever know a good script if it bit me in the face. But, I know what I like, so we'll see. Seth [Grahame-Smith] is writing something. I just told him, because it was something where I liked the character, he'd probably have a better response. He has ideas about it, so I just wanted to let him respond to it and see what he comes up with," Tim replied when asked if a Beetlejuice sequel is something he would consider being involved in.

Tim remained tight-lipped on the possibility of doing a Pinocchio movie alongside Robert Downey Jr., and the helmer joked that he is "sick" of himself already this year because he has three films coming out in 2012, Dark Shadows, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and Frankenweenie. "I'm very busy, aren't I? It's kind of embarrassing that I have three movies [this year]. I'm sick of me, already. We'll let these come out, and then I'll go away and you guys can deal with other people," he added to Collider.com.
