Nerdist Update: Sources have confirmed to Nerdist that this rumor is far from reliable — so don’t believe the hype (yet). Additionally, The Independent received an official comment from Tim Burton’s rep saying that, “Tim did not provide a statement to confirm Beetlejuice 2 as the movie is not in development.”

Earlier report:

Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice!

Since it’s original release the film ‘Beetlejuice’ has only grown in love and admiration from fans. Word started flying around last year when Michael Keaton had said he was in if it came together. Then Rumors that Michael and Winona Ryder had signed on. Winona last August appeared on ‘Late Night with Seth Myers’ and confirmed the rumors. See her appearance below.

Recently the gang at ShowBizSpy caught up with Tim Burton and got a comment from him on the films status.

Tim: “The film is a go and has been approved by the Warner Bros. team, we have talked with the cast members we wanted for the film and they are all on board, this includes both Winona and Michael. We have the script in hand everything is in place all we need to do now is get ready to start filming.”

Since he wouldn’t give anymore details I think we’ll consider this a tease but great news none the less. It’s happening! Now we just need to know when. Until then……
