Beetlejuice Sequel To Star Michael Keaton In “True Continuation 26 Years Later”

The first promises for the Beetlejuice sequel have been made. Now I’ve been told that this is what I’m going to get, I’ll probably blow a gasket if I don’t.

So, here’s what the new film’s screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith has pledged:

The star of the movie has to be Michael Keaton as Beetlejuice, and it’s a true continuation 26 years later. Not just throwing him in as a cameo going, “Hey, it’s me. I endorse this movie.”

Okay, Grahame-Smith, I’d have accepted a good sequel without Keaton, but now you’ve baited me with his return, I’m going to hold you to it.

Another self-imposed condition the at the writer-producer and his co-producer David Katzenberg set for themselves was securing the involvement of Tim Burton, and they’ve told Entertainment Weekly that he’s definitely onboard – though not in which capacity. I’d be fascinated to see him direct, and go back to the goofy, Tashlin-esque cartoon lunacy of the original. Maybe he could shoot it right after he’s finished with that new Pee Wee Herman film I was praying he’d get involved with.

Yeah. I know. But I’ve been sleeping a lot, what with all of these knock-you-out pills for my arm injury, so I need a lot of silly dreams just to fill up all of that space.

Now. As for locking down Keaton to the Beetlejuice sequel, Grahame-Smith admits:

We’re not there yet because we don’t have a film to present to him.

By which I assume they mean a pitch, because if they meant script they would have said script. Which just goes to show how sketchy the plan is at the moment.
