'Beetlejuice 2' Talks Manifesting Yet Again

Reminded by his roommate's work on a hilariously-topical Robin Thicke costume, Tim Burton has started on again about making a Beetlejuice sequel. The director has long waxed hypothetical about the possibility of following up his bizarre 1988 classic, last year insinuating he'd take on the project if his Dark Shadows and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter writer Seth Grahame-Smith could come up with an interesting take. Now, that talk has apparently taken a step forward, with The Wrap saying Burton has officially started talks with Warner Bros. about helming the belated sequel. Deadline, however, cautions not to take any of this too seriously: they stress the deal-making is still "very early," adding that regardless of how that turns out, Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children will be the director's next project. In other words, if or when this ever gets going, by that time we'll probably have to have Ben Affleck take over that Keaton role too.
