Tim Burton Talks 'Beetlejuice 2'

In a nice big interview with MTV, in which he discusses, among other things, his upcoming Dark Shadows and Frankenweenie feature films, Tim Burton says he's still interested in revisiting the Ghost with the Most in a sequel to his 1988 hit Beetlejuice. More after the jump.

Speaking with about a potential Beetlejuice sequel written by Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (the film version of which Burton is producing) author Seth Grahame-Smith, Burton remarks, "I love that character, and Michael [Keaton] is so great in it. I always think about how great and fun that character was, so I just said to ['Vampire Hunter' writer] Seth [Grahame-Smith], 'If you have some idea about it, go for it, and then I'll look at it freshly.' In the past, I tried some things, but that was way back when. He seemed really excited about it."

"I told him to try some stuff," added Burton, "but he hasn't come back to me yet. Michael [Keaton] was so great in it. I'm sure he'd strangely tap right back into it."
