Re: Beetlejuice 2

Crikey, who in the hell wants to see a Beetlejuice 2? The same crowd that wants to see Ghostbusters 3, I'd bet.

I never really felt the need. If a film is entertaining I will enjoy it, however many films really do not require sequels, even less so when it is twenty five years later. It does depend on the story and what movie they wish to continue, many are perfectly fine as standalone films.

I remember there being two Beetlejuice sequels back in the 90s that were always rumored -- one being Beetlejuice Goes Hawaiian and the other being Beetlejuice in Love. Both sounded horrendous. I think it stands off way better as a one-off although I'd be lying if I said it wouldn't be cool to see Keaton dress up as him again.

Both this and Ghostbusters III window passed 20 years ago, though. Neither idea is appealing and both should be scrapped.

Let me guess this time his pitch is for Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter star as the couple who wind up calling on Beetlejuice for something. Truth be told I kind of would be interested in a sequel and think the original film is probably one of the more fun Burton films. It would also be cool to see Michael Keaton reprise the character and I think he could still pull it off fairly well since he'd be in a lot of make up anyways. On the other hand it has been an awfully long time since the original came out that I almost wonder if it's too late at this point for a sequel. Especially one that isn't necessarily needed anyways. I'd see it if it ever gets made though probably.

Re: Beetlejuice 2

Tim Burton has become so creatively bankrupt that he is actually the last person I would want to have involved with a Beetlejuice sequel.

Re: Beetlejuice 2

Michael Keaton pretty much played Beetlejuice in that Larry David HBO movie anyhow. Same exact cadence, mannerisms, etc.

Although I'd like Trey Parker and Matt Stone to do the sequel as a musical.

Re: Beetlejuice 2

Or how about they adapt the original story as a musical. That could be interesting.

Re: Beetlejuice 2

I guess the makeup could hide Keaton but Geena Davis or Alec Baldwin? Ghosts don't get old and fat.

Re: Beetlejuice 2

Not unless the writer has the right exchange of dialogue exposition.

INT. BEDROOM, DAY.

BARBARA sits on the corner of the bed, patching a day dress. The bathroom door is open, revealing ADAM standing at the vanity mirror examining his aging, wrinkled face.

ADAM: (sighs) Why am I getting old and fat, Barbara? Ghosts aren't supposed to get old and fat.

BARBARA: And ghost clothes aren't suppose to get ghost holes in them but I'm still mending this dress. Aging is part of life, regular or after. It's all in--

ADAM: I know, I know. It's all in the book. Doesn't mean I wasn't looking forward to not aging.

BARBARA: As for the "fat" part, that's on you.

ADAM: Ha-ha. Stop cooking everything with cheese.

Re: Beetlejuice 2

Kevin Smith was asked to direct Beetlejuice Goes Hawaiian in the 90s I believe but passed.

Sort of. At the beginning of the video below, he mentions that he was offered re-write duties but turned it down.

Re: Beetlejuice 2

I actually hope they make this, just so we can point and laugh. This is a such a horrible idea, I say...bring it on. Oh and Burton must helm this, just to complete the clusterfucking.

Re: Beetlejuice 2

What's with these sequels to movies being made like decades later Dumb and Dumber To, Independence Day 2, Beetlejuice 2, Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps. There must be no original ideas at all.

They remade Embrace Of The Vampire. Ergo you are correct.

Spoiler:
Off topic but I've never seen that video before and it was pretty interesting hearing Smith talk about the Superman film he wrote that never happened. I'd always heard talk about it but seems like a pretty interesting story.

Re: Beetlejuice 2

Like Kurt Russell, Michael Keaton is a guy I always like to see in movies. Maybe it's because his current filmography is sparse.

Love the 30 Rock episodes he was in.

Re: Beetlejuice 2

I'm kind of surprised that he acts like a bit of a dick when asked about the 25th anniversary of his Batman role. I like the guy but is it unheard of to celebrate a film's anniversary with a special event or possibly record a new commentary track?

Re: Beetlejuice 2

Damn, you guys are all so negative. Ryder, Davis, and Keaton don't seem to be doing shit these days. The only one that probably wouldnt do it is Baldwin. This could be Burton's comeback, and as long as it's a true sequel and not some idiotic reboot or remake or the Hawaiian crap I'd definitely be excited for this.

BTW, Keaton is one of the most underrated actors around IMO.

Keaton should fucking play Batman again. He was the best next to West you all know it.
