It seems director Tim Burton and actor Michael Keaton maybe saying "Beetlejuice" for a second time.
Another hint that the two will reunite is Beetlejuice 2 writer Seth Grahame Smith's tweet from Oct. 16 that reads:
Big news today. Very exciting, and very daunting. Lots of work ahead.— Seth Grahame-Smith (@sethgs) October 16, 2013
While Keaton has reportedly been interested in the project since Warner Bros. first announced the movie, Variety points out that Burton is not big on sequels. In fact, he hasn't done one since 1992's Batman Returns.
The first movie, also starring Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis and Winona Ryder, was about a couple of recently deceased ghosts who contract the services of a "bio-exorcist" in order to remove the obnoxious new owners of their house.
What do you think? Would you like to see Burton and Keaton return for Beetlejuice 2?
