Beetlejuice is a film that is synonymous with Tim Burton. While it only pulled 74 million at the box office, it quickly became a cult classic with its dark comedic them and the lively and animated performance of Michael Keaton. There has been speculation for awhile regarding a sequel and now it seems as though Michael Keaton is in preliminary discussions with Tim Burton and just waiting for the moment to sign on for the film.
Michael Keaton went ahead and made “Beetlejuice” fans’ millennium by revealing that he’s all but officially signed on to a sequel to the 1988 supernatural cult comedy.
“I’’ve emailed (original “Beetlejuice” director Tim Burton) a couple of times, talked to the writer a couple of times, but all really, really preliminary stuff,” Keaton told MTV News while promoting his latest movie, “Robocop.”
I have no doubt that Michael Keaton can revive the character that we’ve known and loved for so long. The question that comes to my mind is whether or not the sequel will be able to do as well as the first film. I’m guessing that the plot will most likely exclude main characters like Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis, but there is still strong speculation that Winona Ryder will be involved. The key to this film working is Keaton and I have to say that I’m glad he’s on board.
