Seth Grahame-Smith has met with Michael Keaton for Beetlejuice 2

While I've been a little pessimistic about Tim Burton projects for a bit now (please DARK SHADOWS don't let me down), I can't help but start to warm up to the idea of a sequel to BEETLEJUICE. Regardless of how you feel about THE OTHER GUYS, Keaton still proves that he is freaking hilarious. I trust him and I trust that he would only do this if it felt right.

Shock Til Ya Drop checked in with ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER writer/screenwriter, Seth Grahame-Smith, who had an update on the project, "It's a reality in the sense that I met with Michael Keaton last week. We talked for a couple of hours and talked about big picture stuff. It's a priority for Warner Bros. It's a priority for Tim. Right now, I am writing an animated movie for Tim based on an idea of mine. Then I adapt Unholy Night [based on the upcoming book]. The third I am hoping is Beetlejuice in terms of writing schedule."

The site then went on to ask about Keaton's excitement level for his return as the ghost with the most, "Huge. He's been wanting to do it for 20 years and he'll talk to anybody about it who will listen. I really told him, I have a huge reverence for Tim and a huge reverence for that film in general. I don't think we should do it if we shit on the legacy. He agrees. So, right now, it remains to be seen, I have a couple of story ideas, but we're very early out."

Okay, now I want statements and ideas from Keaton. What do you guys think should happen in the sequel? Who should make cameos?
