Will the ghost with the most return? It looks as if it might now be a possibility. The Wrap.com is reporting that Beetlejuice 2 might be the next project for Tim Burton, after his upcoming Big Eyes. He is officially involved, but what that means is still unclear at this juncture.
Michael Keaton is expected to return as the title character. If Burton were to direct this would make their fourth project together.
From the Wrap: “The Geffen Company, which produced the 1988 classic, will produce the sequel with Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg of KatzSmith Productions. Grahame-Smith, who penned the Burton-produced adaptation of “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter,” wrote the script that Warner Bros. has confidence in”.
Burton’s next release is the aforementioned Big Eyes, which stars Amy Adams as painter Margaret Keane and Christoph Waltz as her credit-grabbing husband.
Big Eyes currently has only a 2014 release date.
