Beetlejuice 2 is moving forward. Again.

Well, it’s not the first time we’ve written this and I have feeling it won’t be the last, but the Beetlejuice sequel is finally on track again.

Yes, we’ve been reporting on a Beetlejuice sequel since 2013 (here) with original star Michael Keaton, Winona Ryder and director Tim Burton all, at various points, talking the movie up, but with Keaton now aged 70, we were starting to think that, realistically, he was past the point of playing ‘the ghost with the most’ again.

However, we’re going to see him back as Batman this year in two movies – The Flash and Batgirl – so, well, it seems anything goes now.

And don’t get me wrong, I’m such a big fan of the 1988 original – as is my daughter – but at this stage I don’t know if it’s even something that we need, or want, to happen.

But it seems Brad Pitt’s Brad Pitt’s production company Plan B is up to the task of bringing the supernatural sensation back to our screens.

We know little else at this stage just that it’s early days and there’s not even a script yet, let alone a shooting or release date, but we’re hearing it’s a sequel and not a – gulp – reboot, meaning we’re hoping that Keaton is up for returning.

No word on Ryder, Burton or the rest of the original cast, including Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, Catherine O’Hara returning at this stage.

We’ll be watching this closely and keeping you abreast of any details we hear.

Let us know if a Beetlejuice return is something you’d want to see, gang.

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….
