Shock Till You Drop
Could it be? Could it actually be? Movement on a possible sequel to the much beloved flick Beetlejuice! Dare we get slightly excited? Read on for the latest
Shock Till You Drop recently caught up with Seth Grahame-Smith about his upcoming film, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (which he penned) in St. Louis. While there, they got the latest on Beetlejuice 2, the follow-up film the writer is involved with at Warner Bros. that Tim Burton will shepherd.
“It’s a reality in the sense that I met with Michael Keaton last week,” Grahame-Smith told Shock. “We talked for a couple of hours and talked about big picture stuff. It’s a priority for Warner Bros. It’s a priority for Tim. Right now, I am writing an animated movie for Tim based on an idea of mine. Then I adapt Unholy Night [based on the upcoming book]. The third I am hoping is Beetlejuice in terms of writing schedule.”
And what was Keaton’s excitement level like?
“Huge,” the writer added. “He’s been wanting to do it for 20 years, and he’ll talk to anybody about it who will listen. I really told him, ‘I have a huge reverence for Tim and a huge reverence for that film in general. I don’t think we should do it if we shit on the legacy.’ He agrees. So, right now, it remains to be seen, I have a couple of story ideas, but we’re very early out.”
