Rumors of a Beetlejuice sequel have been swirling online since I started the website back in 2001. In fact, at one point a direct-to-video sequel was actually announced. Nothing ever came into fruition, thankfully, as now the studio looks to back a big budget continuation with Dark Shadows, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and Pride & Prejudice & Zombies writer Seth Grahame-Smith!
The 1988 Tim Burton-directed hit starred Michael Keaton as a ghoul hired by a recently deceased couple to drive the new owners out of their house. Burton and Keaton made the movie while they were working on the studio’s first Batman film, which was released the following year.
Beetlejuice also starred Alec Baldwin, Winona Ryder and Geena Davis. The film will not be a remake, says Deadline; the intention is to reboot it by advancing the storyline of the original, which was done by The Geffen Company and Warner Bros. My understanding is that this would mean Keaton will be replaced as the “Ghost with the most.”
