Although this news is quite old, it’s nice to have confirmation that Michael Keaton is still interested in a sequel to Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice. Inside you can read an excerpt from an interview with Keaton that’ll get you pumped up once again for the “ghost with the most”…
During a interview with Michael Keaton to promote the upcoming film White Noise, Big Fan Boy discovered some sweet news regarding a sequel to Beetlejuice:
Question: You think you might work with Tim Burton again?
Answer: Man sure I hope so. He’s great. He’s just one of those guys that you just wanna be around that stuff. It’s true art.
Question: Have you guys discussed some ideas on possible films?
Answer: Well the thing I always wanted to remake, or the thing I always wanted to do, and still do… not remake. I wanna do another BEETLEJUICE. I think there’s room to do it, cause there’s nothing like it, and there never will be anything like it. But you kind of don’t want to mess it up, and the only way to do it is with Tim involved. He doesn’t want to direct it. So I talked to him and said “Where do you have time in your life to produce it, and let’s find a guy to direct it and write it.” I don’t how he’s gonna do that, or how I’m gonna do it. I’d just make the time to do it. But I’d like to do it. He’s original and an artist, and you really can’t say that about too many people.
