Michael Keaton Talks ‘Beetlejuice’ Sequel


Michael Keaton has shed some light on his involvement with the unofficial Bettlejuice sequel, giving insight to his, and director Tim Burton’s relationship to the new film.

While speaking on the matter, Keaton said “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.”

It seems that Keaton and Burton’s desired involvement with the film is what is holding it together, with Keaton claiming he only really wants to do it if Burton does, as do lead writers David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith. Their repeated desire to only work on the film with the duo of Keaton and Burton attached is well known, and well stressed.

Continuing on Burton’s involvement, Keaton went on to say that “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.”

Hopefully something official will be announced soon, so that production can truly begin to be underway.
