[Movies] Michael Keaton Says That He And Tim Burton Are Doing Beetlejuice 2 Posted by Joseph Lee on 02.17.2014
It's finally happening...
In an interview with MTV, Michael Keaton revealed that he and director Tim Burton are on board for Beetlejuice 2.
First, he was asked about Batman turning 25 this year. He said: "Are we doing anything? Yeah, we're having a party me and Tim [Burton]. We're going to the Batman museum, of course. And the Batman parade. It is a funny idea that we'd all get together. I loved it, I'm proud to be the original... In terms of that whole version."
As for Beetlejuice, Winona Ryder has talked about the movie in the past and Seth Grahame-Smith has been working on the script since at least 2012. Burton is currently working on post-production for Big Eyes, a biopic about artist Walter Keane (starring Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz). He doesn't have anything scheduled beyond 2014.
Keaton said: "I've e-mailed Tim a couple of times, talked to the writer a couple of times, but all really, really preliminary stuff. I always said that's the one thing I'd like to do again, if I ever did anything again. But it kind of required Tim to be involved some way or another. Now it looks like he is involved. And without giving too much away we've talked to each other, and e-mailed each other, and if he's in, it's going to be hard not to be in."
