Tim Burton offered an update on a follow-up to Beetlejuice, the project announced last fall with Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg attached to develop.
Among the many projects Burton discussed in an MTV interview today, Beetlejuice was brought up. Here’s an excerpt…
MTV: Is it true that you’re considering doing another “Beetlejuice” film?
Burton: Yes. I love that character, and Michael [Keaton] is so great in it. I always think about how great and fun that character was, so I just said to ["Vampire Hunter" writer] Seth [Grahame-Smith], “If you have some idea about it, go for it, and then I’ll look at it freshly.” In the past, I tried some things, but that was way back when. He seemed really excited about it
MTV: Has he run any of his ideas by you yet?
Burton: No. I told him to try some stuff, but he hasn’t come back to me yet. Michael was so great in it. I’m sure he’d strangely tap right back into it.
Burton is presently produced Seth Grahame-Smith’s Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter.
