Sequel won’t go ahead without 60-year-old actor . . .
Now comes the news that Warner Bros. has tasked two writers, namely Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg, to write a sequel to the 1988 movie starring Michael Keaton and directed by Tim Burton.
Here’s what Seth Grahame-Smith recently had to say about the project:
“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.”
