Beetlejuice Sequel Close To Happening?

It has been nearly three decades since the supernatural comedy classic “Beetlejuice” hit screens, and for a significant portion of that time there have been rumors of a follow-up.

It remained fairly speculative talk until about two years ago when things actually seemed to be heating up and a script seemed to be coming together. On top of that, both director Tim Burton and actor Michael Keaton have seen something of a career resurgence as of late.

Coming Soon spoke with Burton during “Big Eyes” promotional rounds and the filmmaker says the sequel is coming together: “It’s a character that I love and I miss and I miss actually working with Michael. There’s only one Betelgeuse. We’re working on a script and I think it’s probably closer than ever and I’d love to work with him again.”
