'Beetlejuice 2' Could Begin Filming As Early As 2013

Writer Seth Grahame-Smith sure has had a lot going for him lately thanks the new Tim Burton movie 'Dark Shadows' but his future is only growing brighter. With his current projects already in place, many are wondering about another that would bring back the world of Beetlejuice in a sequel. When asked about the status of the project, Grahame-Smith advised it's on him now.

The status is everyone’s waiting for me to get off my ass. I’ve met with Michael Keaton about it, I’ve met with Tim [Burton] about it. Warner Brothers is obviously eager. But right now the ball’s in my court to sort of crack the story that will make it worth of doing this again. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it to you. I don’t want to have to look fans in the face and apologize for making a bad Beetlejuice movie, because it’s one of my favorite movies. And I don’t want to make anything just because I can. I don’t think Tim would participate [with those motives in mind] and I certainly know Michael wouldn’t. If we get something worthy…
 It sure sounds like the project is a go as soon as Grahame-Smith gets things rolling on his end. Michael Keaton is who most people thought might be the hurdle, but he appears to be on board. Now whether or not any other characters will return; Grahame-Smith was also asked about those of Winona Ryder, Alec Baldwin, and Geena Davis.

It’s all possible. In terms of the story, however many years that are between the two films will be the amount of years that are between the two story lines. It’s not a reboot or a remake, it’s a straight sequel with Michael Keaton returning as Beetlejuice.
