Michael Keaton Gives “Beetlejuice 2” Update

It has been twenty-five years since the original Tim Burton “Batman” hit cinemas, and the film’s star Michael Keaton is still out there and still making movies such as this weekend’s “Robocop” remake.

Talking with MTV News, Keaton was asked about his OTHER most famous pairing with Burton – the supernatural comedy “Beetlejuice”. At last report, Seth Grahame-Smith was at work on the script but there’s been little word since then. When asked how the long-gestating sequel is progressing, Keaton says:

“I’ve e-mailed Tim a couple of times, talked to the writer a couple of times, but all really, really preliminary stuff. I always said that’s 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 e-mailed each other, and if he’s in, it’s going to be hard not to be in.”

Burton is currently in post-production on the Walter Keane biopic “Big Eyes” and hasn’t scheduled his next directing gig yet.
