We are too! Imagine, another Beetlejuice flick with all the original cast and Tim Burton directing? Yeah, sign us up! Read on for what was found out.
Our friends over at ShockTillYouDrop.com caught up with Seth Grahame-Smith during coverage for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and he revealed some interesting news about Beetlejuice 2 and Michael Keaton’s involvement.
Shock asked him for the latest on the project and to see how close the sequel was to becoming a reality. “It’s a reality in the sense that I met with Michael Keaton last week,” Grahame-Smith told Shock. “We talked for a couple of hours and talked about big picture stuff. It’s a priority for Warner Bros. It’s a priority for Tim. Right now, I am writing an animated movie for Tim based on an idea of mine. Then I adapt Unholy Night [based on the upcoming book]. The third I am hoping is Beetlejuice in terms of writing schedule.”
And what was Keaton’s excitement level like?
“Huge,” the writer added, “he’s been wanting to do it for 20 years and he’ll talk to anybody about it who will listen. I really told him, I have a huge reverence for Tim and a huge reverence for that film in general. I don’t think we should do it if we shit on the legacy. He agrees. So, right now, it remains to be seen, I have a couple of story ideas, but we’re very early out.”
Can ya feel the excitement in the air? Shit, if BeetleJuice 2 sees the light of day, maybe we will finally get a Ghostbusters 3?
