Fresh off revitalising Robocop, Michael Keaton is ready to revisit another classic and confirmed that he is in talks with Tim Burton to make a Beetlejuice sequel.
For those of you who are too young to remember or had cruel parents that didn’t want you to watch Channel 10’s Saturday night movie of choice, Beetlejuice is a classic about this guy.
It also featured Winona Ryder as a goth and Alec Baldwin as thinner, younger, more handsome version of his current self.
David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith are writing the sequel, and have stressed that they only want to make the movie if Burton and Keaton are involved. Plot details reveal that it’s a sequel rather than a reboot, and it will take place 20 something years after the original.
In an interview with MTV News, Keaton offered up this.
“I’ve e-mailed Tim 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 some way or another.”
“Now it looks like he 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.”
For now we’ll have to be content with the banana boat song and try our hardest not to say Beetlejuice three times.
