TMZ rushed Michael Keaton in the street and forced a video camera in his face before asking if Beetlejuice 2 is “a go, is it a green light?”
His simple reply:
That’s what they’re telling me.
Now, he may not have been responding specifically to the green light point, simply meaning that the film is in development or passing through the contract-signing, talent-convincing process. There’s even an argument that the fabled green light doesn’t really exist and films get made simply because a smaller pile of agreements accrue and before anybody knows it, cameras are rolling.
Anyway, I think Beetlejuice 2 is looking pretty likely, and I’d expect to see Michael Keaton in it and Tim Burton behind the camera.
Dear lord, I hope it’s good. Very few films mean as much to me as the first Beetlejuice.
Previously: I spoke to screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith about his plans for the sequel. His intentions are honest and noble at least.
