Tim Burton offered an update on a follow-up to Beetlejuice, the project announced last fall with Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg attached to develop.
Among the many projects Burton discussed in an MTV interview today, Beetlejuice was brought up. Here’s an excerpt…
MTV: Is it true that you’re considering doing another “Beetlejuice” film?
Burton: Yes. I love that character, and Michael [Keaton] is so great in it. I always think about how great and fun that character was, so I just said to [“Vampire Hunter” writer] Seth [Grahame-Smith], “If you have some idea about it, go for it, and then I’ll look at it freshly.” In the past, I tried some things, but that was way back when. He seemed really excited about it
MTV: Has he run any of his ideas by you yet?
Burton: No. I told him to try some stuff, but he hasn’t come back to me yet. Michael was so great in it. I’m sure he’d strangely tap right back into it.
