Future of Tim Burton's <i>Beetlejuice</i> Sequel Hanging on Script

There have been rumors for years about the possible resurrection of characters from Tim Burton’s 1988 film Beetlejuice for a sequel, but the director now tells Vulture that whether he moves forward on the project depends on the quality of the script.

Burton told Vulture, “Those were fun characters, but I’d have to see what the script was like and if it was worth doing.”

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies writer Seth Grahame-Smith, who also wrote Burton’s recent Dark Shadows, announced last year that he was at work on a script for the Beetlejuice sequel.

Burton recently reunited with Beetlejuice cast members Winona Ryder and Catherine O’Hara for Frankenweenie, the feature length remake of Burton’s 1984 short of the same name. The film is nominated for an Oscar for Best Animated Feature.
