Daylight Come and I Want More Beetlejuice!

During some of our practice runs here at Cinema Recon, one of our practice news stories was that a Beetlejuice 2 was in the works.  Not many details at the time, but we did hear that it would be a sequel rather than a remake.  Our practice consensus: hesitant anticipation.

Why so serious?

Today, all across the internets, sites are quoting’s interview with David Katzen­berg and Seth Grahame-Smith.  The duo has formed Katz­Smith Productions and are working on a number of projects, amongst them the Beetlejuice sequel.

“We’re not remaking Beetlejuice. People have been very angry about that,” said Katzenberg to EW.  Added Grahame-Smith, “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 …”

So let’s recap:  1) A True Sequel, 2) Tim Burton is onboard, 3) Only Michael Keaton can be the Man in Stripes.

Yes please.
