Tim Burton Might Be Making That Beetlejuice Sequel

Last we heard about those long-talked about plans to make some money on another Beetlejuice film, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies writer Seth Grahame-Smith was rumored to be using his dubious talent at tacking stock Halloween costumes onto titles to craft a script for the project. Well, speaking to MTV, Beetlejuice director Tim Burton has now confirmed this rumor, and added that he may himself be involved in some capacity. When asked if he's considering a sequel, Burton responded:

"Yes. I love that character, and Michael [Keaton] is so great in it. I always think about how great and fun that character was, so I just said to ["Vampire Hunter" writer] Seth [Grahame-Smith], 'If you have some idea about it, go for it, and then I'll look at it freshly.' In the past, I tried some things, but that was way back when. He seemed really excited about it."

So, it sounds like we really might be getting another Beetlejuice, and Burton and Keaton might even be involved. And if Grahame-Smith's writing history is any indication, Beetlejuice will probably be fighting witches. Or devils? Wait, duh, it's obviously mummies next.
