Studio:Warner Bros. Pictures
Screenwriters:David Katzenberg, Seth Grahame-Smith
Starring:Michael Keaton, Winona Ryder
A follow-up to the 1988 film. The new film is planned as a continuation of the original and not as a reboot.
Directed by Tim Burton, the original starred Michael Keaton as the titular Beetlejuice, a "bio-exorcist" (a ghost who removes humans), who is unwittingly employed by a newly-deceased couple (played by Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis) to frighten away the family that has just moved into their would-be home. Winona Ryder starred as the daughter of the family in her breakout role.
While the original film spawned a lesser-known animated series, a sequel was planned in the early '90s with the title "Beetlejuice Goes Hawaiian." Burton had planned to return as director, but the project failed to develop beyond an initial screenplay.
