Michael Keaton is down for Beetlejuice 2!

Beetlejuice

Tim Burton has said that he was interested in doing the sequel to Beetlejuice, the movie that catapulted Michael Keaton’s into stardom. If the sequel does happen, that means that Michael Keaton has to reprise his role as Beetlejuice. During a press junket for the Robocop reboot, Keaton told MTV that it’s getting close to happening.

“I’ve emailed Tim a couple of times, talked to the writer a couple of times, but all really, really preliminary stuff until relatively recently,” Keaton said. “I always said that [Beetlejuice] is the one thing I’d like to do again, if I ever did anything again. But it kind of required Tim to be involved some way or another. Now it looks like he is involved. And without giving too much away, we’ve talked to each other, and emailed each other, and if he’s in, it’s going to be hard not to be in.”

Winona Ryder, who played Lydia Deetz in the film, is also hoping that the sequel happens.

“I’m kind of sworn to secrecy,” she said. “But it sounds like it might be happening.” She also added that it would not be a remake. “It’s 27 years later,” Ryder said. “And I have to say, I love Lydia so much. She was such a huge part of me. I would be really interested in what she is doing 27 years later.”

Right now Tim Burton is busy with Big Eyes, a movie starring Amy Adams, Krysten Ritter and Christoph Waltz about painter Margaret Keene.
