A Beetlejuice Sequel May Not Be Worth Dying For

The Beetlejuice sequel is still happening, according to screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith. If the script impresses them, Tim Burton would be back to produce it, and Michael Keaton to reprise the title character in a plot taking place 26 or 27 years later. “What’s great is that for Beetlejuice, time means nothing in the afterlife, but the world outside is a different story," says Grahame-Smith. He also sounds very serious about making the sequel worthy of the original. "I don’t wanna be the guy that destroys the legacy and the memory of the first film; I would rather die." There's gotta be some joke about dying to preserve the memory of a movie about ghosts here, but I will refrain from making it.
