We haven't heard much regarding Beetlejuice 2 since screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith revealed in March that he had begun writing the script. Today, we have word that Beetlejuice director Tim Burton is looking to return for the sequel.
The filmmaker was considering dropping out of the adaptation Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children last week, so he could make the sequel. However, now the director has shifted his schedule to accommodate both movies, although it isn't known when production may start on either one.
Back in 2011, Seth Grahame-Smith and co-writer David Katzenberg revealed they had Tim Burton's blessing to work on the remake. The director also revealed in January 2012 that he was interested in coming back to direct.
Michael Keaton was in talks to return as the title character last February, but it isn't known if his deal was ever finalized or not. The unidentified source at Schmoes Know also hears that the finished script is really good, but no story details have been revealed.
