“Beetlejuice” Resurrection?

 – – One of my fave movies of all time and one which contributed to my love of over-the-top weirdness was the 1988 Tim Burton production of Beetlejuice, with Michael Keaton as the title character.  A new sequel is coming at an undetermined date, the movie will not be a re-make, and it may be called, Beetlejuice 2 or Beetlejuice Begins…it’s far too early to tell, or even what form the movie will take.  The original producer David Katzenberg and writer Seth Grahame-Smith will be making the sequel.

It’s also unknown at this stage whether all or part of the original cast will return, but one hopes that at least Michael Keaton will.  He shines in dark movies, whether comedy or drama, and his inspired, gleefully demented portrayal of Beetlejuice is what made the classic original a great gothic comedy…

…if we chant “Beetlejuice” three times, maybe we will again hear the great bio-exorcist say, “It’s showtime!

    Until I see legitimate trailers for such, I will regard all talk about a sequel as just a lot “White Noise.”

      There’s a long way to go until we can count on a sequel for this one…and if Michael Keaton doesn’t again play the title role, I really don’t want them to make it!
