It seems like every couple of months we get news on the potential Beetlejuice sequel. Last time, it was Winona Ryder who mentioned she would love stepping back into the shoes of Lydia Deetz. Today, Michael Keaton confirms he’s had talks with director Tim Burton about the project.
“I’ve e-mailed Tim a couple of times, talked to the writer a couple of times, but all really, really preliminary stuff,” Keaton said. “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. 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.”
We know that writer Seth Grahame-Smith is currently working on the script. I hope that all these ‘talks’ and ‘discussions’ actually lead to somewhere once Burton is finished with Big Eyes.
