The Horror Honeys: Honey Buzz ~ More Pointless Beetlejuice 2 Teasing

Honey Buzz ~ More Pointless Beetlejuice 2 Teasing

If you're the reason Beetlejuice 2 gets made,
I might stop hating you.
Over the late summer and early fall, the Honeys were among the loudest to subsonic squee about the possibility of a sequel to the source of our teenage Tim Burton obssesion, Beetlejuice. Were we the only ones strangely attracted to the Ghost with the Most? I think not.

Screen Rant isn't helping us out here with their rumor mongering...and it's not even JUICY rumor stuff.  



We already knew that a screenplay has been in development from David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith (The Hard Times of RJ Berger) for a WHILE and most of the former main cast members have made noises that they're interested in being a part of a sequel. With everyone shitting their pants about Michael Keaton again and Tim Burton finally (sigh) getting some much needed "regular audience" attention, the possibility of a sequel is actually starting to seem legit and not just a bunch of goth girl dreams fluttering around like batty sugarplums. 

In a recent interviw with Coming Soon,  Burton talked candidly about Keaton and about Beetlejuice:
“It’s a character that I love and I miss and I miss actually working with Michael. There’s only one Beetlejuice.  We’re working on a script and I think it’s probably closer than ever and I’d love to work with him again.”

Keaton also told Deadline confirmed some of the rumor buzz, and it seems to be safe to say that a sequel won't go ahead without Keaton being involved in some way: 
“Tim Burton and I have emailed about it. We’re both in the same situation (of always being busy on other projects). Neither one of us gets tired of the conversation… Tim says he’s working on something, then goes away for a while. At some point, someone is going to say we really want to do it. You don’t want to fuck it up, so it has to be perfect.”


So...what does REALLY this mean? Fucking nothing. But hey, at least we're still paying attention!
