Following last week's report that Tim Burton is interested in making Beetlejuice 2, we have word that the director is officially in talks to take the helm.
Michael Keaton is expected to reprise his role as the Ghost With the Most, although it isn't known if his deal is finalized yet or not. Our report from last week revealed that Tim Burton was trying to find a way to make both Beetlejuice 2 and the adaptation Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. It seems that the director still hasn't decided which project he will make next, but it definitely won't be Beetlejuice 2.
Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg wrote the screenplay for this Warner Bros. sequel, although no story details have been revealed yet. No production schedule has been released.
Tim Burton most recently directed Dark Shadows and Frankenweenie last year, and the upcoming Big Eyes.
