Michael Keaton as the conniving ghost in 'Beetlejuice'.
The adoringly brash and conniving ghost is set to make a comeback.
American filmmaker Tim Burton is preparing to produce a sequel to his 1988 comedy starring the rude yet lovable ghost.
The Beetlejuice 2 project, which has been under discussion at Warner Bros for a number of years now, seems to finally be taking shape.
According to details reported by Schmoesknow.com and confirmed by the Hollywood trade press, Burton has agreed to co-produce the feature. Michael Keaton, who has expressed his particular fondness for the character he brought to the screen in 1988, is expected to return to the role for the sequel.
The storyline for Beetlejuice 2 is currently in development by producer David Katzenberg and writer Seth Grahame-Smith, who authored the parody novel Pride And Prejudice And Zombies and the screenplay for Burton’s Dark Shadows.
