ShockTillYouDrop.com 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.”
