Beetlejuice Sequel Shows Signs of Life
Zombies are a pop culture staple so it’s surprising that it’s taken over two decades for this to (possibly?) happen, but the long-rumored Beetlejuice sequel may finally be moving forward.
Last year it was announced that Pride and Prejudice and Zombies author Seth Grahame-Smith will write the script for Beetlejuice 2 with the intention of bringing back Michael Keaton and Winona Ryder to reprise their roles, as well as Tim Burton in some capacity.
Smith told Screen Rant that the script will be a “true continuation” of the first film, and not a reboot as some rumors suggested.
Burton told MTV that he is on board so long as he and Keaton approve the script. MTV caught up with Ryder during the Toronto International Film Festival and revealed somewhat more news on the project, telling them, "I’ve heard [about the sequel] from journalists, that’s how I found out, but I’m seeing Tim next week, and I will let you know…It’s being written, but is it happening? Tim hasn’t confirmed it yet [officially].”
Hopefully more concrete details will come to light soon.
