Keaton up for Beetlejuice sequel

February 13th, 2012 by bash Comments scooped some interesting info on plans for a Beetlejuice sequel over the weekend.

The site met up with Seth Grahame-Smith about his upcoming film, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, but first spoke about discussions the writer’s had with Michael Keaton.

“We talked for a couple of hours and talked about big picture stuff,” Grahame-Smith said. “It’s a priority for Warner Bros. It’s a priority for Tim (Burton). 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 Keaton’s thoughts on a second movie?

“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.”

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
