"Beetlejuice" Sequel May Include Michael Keaton

 The rumours are true. A Beetlejuice sequel is in the works after the first film became a hit 26 years ago.

 When the project was confirmed as being in development a couple of months ago, the general concern was if the star of the original movie, Michael Keaton, would be reprising his role as the popular “freelance bio-exorcist”.

 Just recently, the project’s scribers/producers David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith, have confirmed that they are writing the script with Michael Keaton in mind.

 This is what they told EW:

“When Warner Bros. came to us about it, we said the only way we’d do it if we got Tim [Burton’s] blessing and involvement, and we got that, and the star of the movie has to be Michael Keaton as Beetlejuice, and it’s a true continuation 26 years later. Not just throwing him in as a cameo going, ‘Hey, it’s me. I endorse this movie.’ We’re not there yet [with Keaton] because we don’t have a film to present to him.”

 If Keaton returns, it seems as if that this sequel might still have some life in it after all.

What do you guys think?
