So it’s official, Tim Burton is now in talks with Warner Bros. to direct Michael Keaton in a sequel to the 1988 classic film “Beetlejuice.” Michael Keaton is expected to reprise his role as the titular fast-talking, black-and-white stripe-wearing ghost with the most.

The Geffen Company, which produced the 1988 classic, will produce the sequel with Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg of KatzSmith Productions. Grahame-Smith, who penned the Burton-produced adaptation of “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter,” wrote the script that Warner Bros. has confidence in.

The question now is can the Beetlejuice character still resonate with movie goers some 25 plus years later.
