Michael Keaton Confirms Tim Burton's Interest in 'Beetlejuice 2'


Beetlejuice 2

Back in the 1990s, a Beetlejuice sequel titled Beetlejuice Goes Hawaiian was in the works, which was to follow the Deetz family's move to Hawaii, where they'd once againt encounter spirits from the afterlife. Unfortunately - or thankfully, depending on how you look at it - that project never got off the ground, and talks of a Beetlejuice sequel didn't resume again until just a couple years ago.

Though both Michael Keaton and Winona Ryder have recently expressed interest in returning to reprise their fan-favorite roles of Beetlejuice and Lydia Deetz, their involvement, and the fate of the entire project, has all been resting on the shoulders of Tim Burton, who hasn't yet confirmed that he's as interested as they are.

Until now, that is.

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Michael Keaton revealed that he's been talking back and forth with Burton about the film, and that Burton is at this point in time very interested in making it happen. "I always said that [Beetlejuice] is the one thing I'd like to do again, if I ever did anything again," said Keaton. "But it kind of required Tim to be involved some way or another. Now it looks like he is involved. And without giving too much away, we've talked to each other, and emailed each other, and if he's in, it's going to be hard not to be in."

Though the film is still a ways off, and by no means a 100% sure thing, it's great to know that all parties involved are getting the ball rolling!
