Bettlejuice, Bettlejuice, BettleJuice
This is going to make some fans very happy. Last year there was a flurry of rumors that Tim Burton and Michael Keaton were both on board for a Bettlejuice sequel but Burton himself shut those rumors down. Well today we got some very encouraging news!
Warner Bros. has hired a new writer to start working on the script. We learned from Deadline that Mike Vukadinovich will rewrite Beetlejuice 2 at Warner Brothers, a project that has been long gestating as a re-pairing of Tim Burton and Michael Keaton. No deals are anywhere done with Burton or Keaton but Deadline hears that the two — who are currently working on Dumbo at Disney — have been excited at the thought of collaborating on a sequel. Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg of KatzSmith Productions would produce this one.
Let’s hope this one sticks and a new screenplay gets delivered that will bring Tim Burton back to the project. For more strange facts about this amazing film click here.
