Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice!
Twitter’s a fun place for discovery. Take, for instance, a piece of fan art that is making the rounds this morning. It comes to us from Stephen Andrade and features a Graboid from Tremors, a sandworm from Beetlejuice and a sandworm from Dune in a race. And look closely at their riders. Yep, that’s Valentine, Beetlejuice himself and, likely, Paul Atreides.
Roughly 24 years ago, a young director named Tim Burton made a significant mark with his second feature film, the dark comedy Beetlejuice, which also put actor Michael Keaton firmly on the map while winning an Oscar for its special make-up FX.
A few months back, it was reported that Dark Shadows screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith was working on the screenplay for a sequel and at the junket for Timur Bekmambetov’s adaptation of Grahame-Smith’s novel Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, producer Tim Burton spoke to ShockTillYouDrop.com about the prospects for a sequel to Beetlejuice, which he claims to be one of his favorite characters.
