“Beetlejuice 2” To Be Modern Sequel With Back Michael Keaton

"Beetlejuice 2" To Be Modern Sequel With Back Michael Keaton

While there hasn’t been much official information in regards to the Beetlejuice sequel, screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith has just confirmed a couple things about the film. Unlike the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot, which is starting over with a brand new cast, Grahame-Smith has rejected the idea of rebooting Beetlejuice.

Buried in a piece about Grahame-Smith in The Hollywood Reporter, the entertainment news site notes that director Tim Burton picked Grahame-Smith to write the long-delayed Beetlejuice sequel. According to their report, Grahame-Smith is “rejecting the idea of rebooting the movie with a new star in favor of bringing Michael Keaton back in a sequel set in the present day.”

So it looks like there will be quite a time jump between when Beetlejuice ended and when the new sequel kicks off. It also appears that while Grahame-Smith wants to bring Keaton back, he won’t be overusing the actor in the film.

Grahame-Smith is reportedly taking Keaton’s “less is more” advice with the Beetlejuice character. He noted that in the original Beetlejuice film, the title character doesn’t appear until almost the midpoint.
