I only know if I’m making a movie if I’m actually filming on set. I’m trying to get back to the core of everything. It comes from a seed, and then it grows, rather than from these statements. I’m working on ideas and stuff, but it’s all very early. We decide how it goes. How is that for a no answer?
How long has Beetlejuice 2 been in development?
The rumor of a fan-favorite sequel beet juice is something that has been going around forever. It goes back to the early 1990s when, after the initial success of beetle juiceone of the first scripts launched for the sequel was called Beetlejuice goes Hawaiian. In the scrapped project, the original family moves to an island in Hawaii to develop a resort, but encounters problems that only Beetlejuice can save them from. Despite all of Burton’s past teasing, this Hawaiian script never saw the light of day. While Keaton and Ryder reprise their beetle juice roles in the sequel being produced by Brad Pitt’s Plan B, the plotline seems still in the works.
The news of Beetle juice 2 that Burton is in the works probably comes as no surprise, but rather as a guarantee to fans of the original film. This development of the reboot and its success will obviously be important to Warner Bros., which had once rejected the idea by pushing instead for a Batman sequel with both Keaton and Burton. The studio, still involved in a sequel for the batter whose tone per Burton has changed over the years will benefit from the beetle juice franchise even after 32 years it must move on with a sequel. Whatever the timetable of its completion, with Burton potentially at the helm of one of the most anticipated projects, the wait should be a pain, but the result could certainly be a treat.
