Beetlejuice 2 has been in negotiations for a couple years now and it kind of fell off the radar as of late. The project has revived a bit with news that director Tim Burton is apparently in talks to return to direct the sequel. Burton directed the original Beetlejuice back in 1988. Burton has stated his potential involvement depended on the quality of the screenplay being written by Seth Grahame-Smith. Apparently the script must be acceptable to Burton.
Filming for Big Eyes just wrapped and Burton is expected to direct Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. Reports are saying his next film most likely won't be Beetlejuice 2, but his flirtation with the project is getting more serious.
Along with the rumored return of Tim Burton, it is also being rumored that Michael Keaton could return and reprise the role of Beetlejuice. Keaton has previously stated that he would love to reprise the role and would "do it in a heartbeat."
I don't even want this sequel to happen, but I will say that it makes me a tiny bit more comfortable with it if both Burton and Keaton return for the project.
