It looks like the Beetle-Man may be reopening for business.
During the recent press junket for his latest film “Robocop,” Michael Keaton confirmed to MTV that he has in fact been in touch with Tim Burton regarding the long awaited sequel to 1988’s “Beetlejuice.”
“I’ve emailed Tim a couple of times, talked to the writer a couple of times, but all really, really preliminary stuff until relatively recently,” Keaton said. “I always said that [Beetlejuice] is 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 emailed each other, and if he’s in, it’s going to be hard not to be in.”
Although Tim Burton is currently working on “Big Eyes,” a film about painter Margaret Keene that stars Amy Adams, Krysten Ritter and Christoph Waltz, he still has yet to announce what his next project will be, presumably leaving the door open for “Beetlejuice 2.”
What do you think about the potential sequel? Do you want to see Keaton don the infamous black and white striped suit again, or do you think they should just leave well enough alone? Let us know in the comments section below!
