Right behind Ghostbusters III in terms of sequels that need to be put out to pasture and shot is Beetlejuice II. A movie even Tim Burton has no interest in making … and have you looked at his output over the last ten years? But that’s not stopping KatzSmith Productions partners David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith from desperately trying to get another one off the ground.
Today they’re telling EW how they won’t do it unless they can get Michael Keaton:
“When Warner Bros. came to us about it, we said the only way we’d do it is if we got Tim [Burton]’s blessing and involvement, and we got that, and the star of the movie has to be Michael Keaton as Beetlejuice, and it’s a true continuation 26 years later. Not just throwing him in as a cameo going, ‘Hey, it’s me. I endorse this movie.’ We’re not there yet [with Keaton] because we don’t have a film to present to him.”
Does anyone think they ever will?
