BREAKING NEWS.... Part 2
There are some movies that got things so right they should never be messed with or remade. One of those movies is Beetlejuice. It had a fantastic script, Tim Burton did a great job directing, Michael Keaton portrayed Beetlejuice perfectly, and Winona Ryder, Geena Davis, and Alec Baldwin made for a great supporting cast. So a remake? Never! But a sequel? Well, yes if the right ingredients were there. And it looks as though they are.
Tim Burton has confirmed that Beetlejuice 2 is going to happen, and he’s going to be directing it. Just as importantly, Michael Keaton is going to be playing Beetlejuice again, and Winona Ryder has also been confirmed as having a role.
Beetlejuice 2 is happening as far as Burton is concerned, we just don’t know when it’s happening. Keaton has recently released Birdman and has two further movies in post-production (Minions and Spotlight). Burton has just finished directing Big Eyes, which is due for release on Christmas Day. So Beetlejuice 2 could conceivably happen in 2015 for a 2016 release.
For fans of the original Beetlejuice the only way a sequel would be accepted is if the original team came back together to make it happen. And it looks as if that’s exactly what will happen. Now all we need if another fantastic script and this could be another must-own classic.
It's a Christmas miracle!.... Thank you, Tim Burton!
