Tim Burton in talks to direct Beetlejuice 2

Michael Keaton likely to return

The long-awaited sequel to Beetlejuice looks as though it's going to finally happen, with Tim Burton in discussions over a return to the director's chair.

Burton has long had one eye on reprising the project, with his involvement in a potential sequel apparently dependent on the strength of the script.

Seth Grahame-Smith had been tasked with writing said script for Warner Bros, and it seems it was up to scratch, as Burton has now entered talks with the studio, according to a report by The Wrap.

Meanwhile, Michael Keaton is also expected to return to the title role, having previously revealed that "I'd do that in a heartbeat… that's the one thing I'd love to do again."

The report claims that Beetlejuice 2 won't be Burton's next project, but with a script in place and a leading man potentially on board, it might not be too far away either…

      I can't decide whether or not a Beetlejuice sequel is a good idea yet but the only way I'd be halfway interested is if Tim Burton was at the helm again. And Keaton too, of course.
