Last month director Tim Burton shared that a sequel to his 1988 classic BEETLEJUICE was 'closer than ever', and according to writer Seth Grahame-Smith it could be filming as soon as the end of the year. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Grahame-Smith shared a few tidbits on BEETLEJUICE 2, stating that Burton could make the sequel his next film following work on MISS PEREGRINE'S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN.

“I’ve emailed with Michael Keaton. I know he’s excited about the idea. I know Tim is excited about the idea. Where it stands now is Tim’s got to get ready to make [Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children], and then hopefully we are set, deals are done, and we’re waiting in the wings ready to go right after Peregrine’s wraps up. The ideal timeline is we’re really getting into it toward the end of this year.”

The writer also shared that original BEETLEJUICE star Winona Ryder would be returning, stating…

[Burton] was doing press for Big Eyes right before the holiday, and was getting the Beetlejuice question, and sort of tipped people off that Winona [Ryder] would be back. Which yes, she will be back.

Grahame-Smith recently shared that he's taking a 'less is more' approach to the screenplay, but points out that he wants to make fans happy with the sequel, stating…

“I think we landed on the right idea, landed on the right approach. It’s just now making sure that—for me—I don’t want to shit my pants in front of the entire world making a sequel to one of my favorite movies.”

Here's hoping they don't screw it up! I'm down to see a return of The Ghost with the Most as long as it's done right. We'll bring you more on BEETLEJUICE 2 as we hear it.
