I’m very excited for Beetlejuice 2. It’s a mix of nostalgia and the increased quality in Tim Burton’s films. I am looking forward to Big Eyes as it appears to be a definitive departure from Burton’s “weird for the sake of Being weird” style of film making.

Burton recently spoke about the script for Beetlejuice 2 (written by Seth Grahame-Smith) calling it “pretty good.”  Which I hope is Burton-534x600code for “great” since Burton is promising that this movie will happen.  Also confirmed?  Winona Ryder (though that’s really nothing new).  Pretty much confirmed?  Michael Keaton.

I wouldn’t worry too much about that Michael Keaton bit.  To hear Tim Burton talk to MTV, there’s no way the movie is happening without him.  It’s Keaton or bust:

“There’s only one Beetlejuice for sure.  And I haven’t really yet spoken to him because he’s out on his awards campaign so I can’t get to him now. “

Other than that, everything looks shiny for the project.  The only question now is, “when the hell do they finally get around to it?”
