Hey Bastards. The ghost with the most may be back at some point. I am not that interested in the flick though if its sans Michael Keaton. He’s Beetlejuice; I don’t want to see his son, his daughter, his heir apparent, etc. I want Keaton doing the original schtick and freaking out the recently diseased… I mean deceased. In a perfect world I would want Burton back to direct but the odds of that are slim to suck-it. Entertainment Weekly caught up with Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg aka KatzSmith Productions for an update on the proposed sequel and it sounds like they are thinking the same thing we are in terms of Keaton’s involvement:
Beetlejuice sequel, an update on “the ghost with the most” that’s still in the concept phase.
DK: We’re not remaking Beetlejuice. People have been very angry about that.
SGS: When Warner Bros. came to us about it, we said the only way we’d do it 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.
