The current rumor on the streets of Hollywood is pretty simple. It’s that the long gestating Beetlejuice sequel will in fact be helmed by Tim Burton himself.
Burton had given his blessing about a year ago and had become involved in a limited capacity. Since then, rumors persist that he’s become more and more attached. He also has been purportedly attempting to shift his schedule so he can direct both Ms Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children and Beetlejuice 2.
Additionally, Michael Keaton is going to be reprising his titular role. That, is honestly, more exciting to me than Burton. Burton hasn’t made a movie I’ve cared about in a long time. But Keaton back in the white makeup and crazy hair? Yep. I’m all about it. I’m there. This movie will get my money because of Keaton, not Burton.
