Tim Burton: “Beetlejuice sequel is closer than ever…” UPDATED

December 16th, 2014 by Marc Comments


Micheal Keaton seems to be back in the spotlight – and rightfully so – for his performance in Birdman and the guys at Comicbook Resources thought it would be a good time to ask director Tim Burton if  this would be a good time to get Beetlejuice back to the big screen, 27 years after he first appeared…

The director seems confident we’ll see him again: “It’s a character that I love and I miss and I miss actually working with Michael. There’s only one Beetlejuice.  We’re working on a script and I think it’s probably closer than ever and I’d love to work with him again.”

It’s hard not to be excited by the idea of Burton and Keaton working together on Beetlejuice again…


Speaking to MTV about the sequel, Burton was asked if Winona Ryder might return too: “Oh yeah, yeah yeah yeah. Oh yeah, oh yeah. Yeah yeah, oh yeah. I worked with [Ryder], I hadn’t seen her in awhile… and she was so great. I was so happy to see her. So those kinds of elements mean something to me. Michael, and her… and that character, I just miss it, there’s some freedom about that character that I love.”

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
