Last September, it was announced that David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith signed a 2-year production deal with Warner Bros. One of the projects they are currently working on is a sequel to Beetlejuice, which was said to reboot the franchise “by advancing the storyline of the original”. During a recent interview, Tim Burton talked about the the possibility of a new Beetlejuice movie:

"MTV: Is it true that you're considering doing another "Beetlejuice" film?

Burton: 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.

MTV: Has he run any of his ideas by you yet?

Burton: No. I told him to try some stuff, but he hasn't come back to me yet. Michael was so great in it. I'm sure he'd strangely tap right back into it."

In a previous interview, Seth Grahame-Smith mentioned that they wouldn't be making the film without Tim Burton’s blessing and getting Michael Keaton on board: “When Warner Bros. came to us about it, we said the only way we’d do it if we got Tim [Burton’s] blessing and involvement, and we got that, and the star of the movie has to be Michael Keaton as Beetlejuice, and it’s a true continuation 26 years later. Not just throwing him in as a cameo going, ‘Hey, it’s me. I endorse this movie.’ We’re not there yet [with Keaton] because we don’t have a film to present to him.”
