It's showtime! At least according to The Schmoes, who reckon Tim Burton will be back terrorize and humorize a new generation of movie goers in the sequel (that's right, not reboot) to the '80s classic, Beetlejuice. It was already reported that former Batman Michael Keaton looked set to reprise the role, but now new inside info has Burton agreeing to helm the movie too. Apparently the director was thinking about dropping out of helming Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children at 20th Century Fox so he could return and direct the new Beetlejuice, but now he's shifted his schedule and is looking to do both films. Obviously we'll have to keep a question mark over this until something official is announced, but if it pans out how would you guys feel about Burton returning to this world?

NYCGEEK - 10/18/2013, 2:37 PM
.....This was known for sometime now. I hope that it does get picked up by the studios (even though it's been shelved/talked about for years).

This was not known for some time now. Burton had expressed interest in an interview..that's it.

Burton hasn't made a decent movie since Sleepy Hollow, no faith in this .

"Will Elfman return as well?"

...what do you think?

I can't help but to recall Beetlejuice Goes Hawaiian.

If Tim's on board then count me in.
RexDartEskimoSpy - 10/18/2013, 3:00 PM
Way to strike while the iron is still hot. I love Beetlejuice, but Burton lost his touch years ago. chances are this will just sully the original.
FantasticSpidey - 10/18/2013, 3:04 PM
The thing is it needs to use purely analog effects to feel right. Something about a CG Sandworm just doesn't feel right.
GUNSMITH - 10/18/2013, 3:04 PM
THIS NEWS MAKES LOKI DANCE...
dellamorte1872 - 10/18/2013, 3:08 PM
this has been a rumor that was bandied about for years sometimes with steam sometimes not. shit even in ONE NIGHT WITH KEVIN SMITH he even talks about it. BEETLEJUICE GOES TO HAWAII hahaha
jlabatman - 10/18/2013, 3:09 PM
@b&y, no accounting for taste, I guess!
SpectacularJoShFest - 10/18/2013, 3:09 PM
Good movie...not great or anything but fun as hell.
It doesn't need a sequel.
SpectacularJoShFest - 10/18/2013, 3:10 PM
LMFAO JLA! That Miley pic is HUULARIOUS!!!!
Optimus83 - 10/18/2013, 3:17 PM
Cool. ...Beetlejuice sequel
Xandera - 10/18/2013, 3:25 PM
Tim Burton needs to stop...
Tevii - 10/18/2013, 3:34 PM
If this is true this could be great news. The original doesnt need a sequel, but after so many years they may have a really fresh new idea that could really add to it... hopefully
Dunejedi - 10/18/2013, 3:41 PM
They should throw Wynona Ryder a bone. I would.
third3ye - 10/18/2013, 4:12 PM
I thought Robin Thicke already got the role.
JoeMomma29 - 10/18/2013, 4:17 PM
I know people are sick and tired of Tim Burton, but I would love to see that sequal!
ZeroEffect - 10/18/2013, 4:59 PM
The title is going to be "The Beetle Re-juiced"
Demongod20 - 10/18/2013, 5:00 PM
I hope they don't treat it as a sequel. Just let it be the same character with a new story in the present time. It doesn't have to tie directly into the original. It should just be them introducing Beetlejuice to a new generation.

Damnit man, I already referenced that. Evening with, goes hawaiian...

To which Smith said, "Didn't we say all we needed to with the first Beetlejuice? Must we go tropical?"
