You know what's been driving me crazy lately? People have been talking about Beetlejuice 2 for almost a year...and some people have been talking about it since the early 90s.
But NOW after months and YEARS of speculation, it looks like Beetlejuice 2 is now in the works... Original director Tim Burton is said to be in talks with screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith ( Dark Shadows, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) for the planned project.
Winona Ryder, has previously hinted that she would love to come back to the project as an adult version of her mini-goth icon Lydia Deetz - I also have a feeling that she'd be excited to work again...just...sayin...
Michael Keaton, however, has been vocal about his role in harassing Burton about the return of Beetlejuice...I knew there was a reason why I loved that man.
"I've e-mailed Tim a couple of times, talked to the writer a couple of times, but all really, really preliminary stuff until relatively recently. I always said that's the one thing I'd like to do again, if I ever did anything again. 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 e-mailed each other, and if he's in, it's going to be hard not to be in."
Now, I know how I feel about Tim Burton's recent film projects...and he's lost something of his muchness along the way. I'm also a little nervous about the writer of Dark Shadows being tapped for this project...but hey...you never know! I'll DEFINITELY be keeping my eye out for ANY Beetlejuice 2 news!
