Michael Keaton Up for ‘Beetlejuice’ Sequel

Michael Keaton as 'Beetlejuice'It looks as though we might be a little closer to a decent Beetlejuice sequel.

While doing the press rounds for his latest film RoboCop, Michael Keaton admitted that he is interested in reprising his role for the 1988 cult hit:

"I've e-mailed [directpr] Tim [Burton] a couple of times, talked to the writer a couple of times, but all really, really preliminary stuff... I always said that's the one thing I'd like to do again, if I ever did anything again. But it kind of required Tim to be involved in some way or another. Now it looks like [Burton] is involved... And without giving too much away, we've talked to each other, and e-mailed each other, and if he's in, it's going to be hard not to be in."

If Keaton is a go and Burton is a go, what's the hold up?

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.
