“Beetlejuice” fans will be very excited to know that Michael Keaton has discussed the sequel for the cult classic movie with director Tim Burton. Keaton reveals that he has exchanged emails with the critically acclaimed director and talked to writer Seth Grahame-Smith about “Beetlejuice 2”.
Keaton told MTV News:
“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,” the former Batman depicter continued, “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.”
The Geffen Company, which produced the first film, will produce the sequel with Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg of KatzSmith Productions. Winona Ryder has also expressed interest to reprise her role as Lydia Deetz.
She once said in an interview about the possibilities of the sequel:
“It’s not a remake,” “It’s 27 years later. And I have to say, I love Lydia [her on-screen character] so much. She was such a huge part of me. I would be really interested in what she is doing 27 years later.”
