Beetlejuice 2 Is a Go and the Rumors Fly!
The ghost with the most dazzled us when Beetlejuice was released on March 30th, 1988. Directed by Tim Burton who had just succeeded with his film “Pee Wee’s Big Adventure“. Burton’s Beetlejuice incorporated everything that we love about Burton today. The blend of life and death. Stop animation. Wild colors and even wilder characters.
The production of Beetlejuice 2 has been in development hell since 1990. It was passed from writer to writer till it landed in the lap of Mike Vukadinovich in 2017. So where the script is at now, is anyone’s guess. However, Brad Pitt’s production company Plan B took over last February. Not a bad name to have attached to your production.
Being a huge fan of Burton, I am beyond excited at this possibility. Tim Burton has so many good films and coming back to one of the best will be fun if all the parts align. It is very tough to succeed with a sequel. Especially with a sequel so far from the original. But Top Gun 2 blew the doors off of that, so maybe Beetlejuice 2 can come back strong. I’m going to be there regardless
