Talk of a Beetlejuice Sequel Won't Go Away

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?

I'm a big fan of both Beetlejuice and Michael Keaton. If they somehow manage to come up with an interesting plot, I'd go see it. The chances of that are very slim though.
