For years and years, talk of a Beetlejuice sequel kept happening with absolutely no indication that it was any closer to becoming a reality. It’s a blessing and a curse because honestly who wants to see a sub-par sequel to Beetlejuice? On the other hand, who wouldn’t want to see more Beetlejuice? Perhaps this solution is the best of both worlds. Evidently, there’s a Beetlejuice musical in development to make its Broadway bow sometime in the 2018/2019 season, part of a never-ending trend now of turning beloved and popular movies into lavish stage musicals.

It’s been almost 30 years, but every now and then we still get some news about a Beetlejuice sequel still being in the mix. Like the titular bio-exorcist, no matter how many time you think you’re rid of this idea that they’re still going to crank Beetlejuice Goes Hawaiian or something, almost three decades after the fact, it still comes back up in rumor control. So here we are again, and no less than Tim Burton is fanning these flames with the promise that Beetlejuice might still happen, and that two key figures are still up for a comeback. (more…)
Everything about Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice was so colorful, dynamic and unique; one can only wonder what the Deetz’s world (and the people that inhabited it) would look like 27 years later. After certain people confirmed their spots in the project, it looks like fans will be getting the chance to find out! (more…)
Tim Burton has been doing the promotion circuit for his new film Big Eyes – which, surprisingly, doesn’t star a dressed up idiosyncratic-characteristic Johhny Depp, or a gothic looking Helena Bonham Carter – which is due to be released on Christmas day. Talking about everything from Beetlejuice 2 being closer than ever going into production, to how he has missed working with Michael Keaton, and now he has been talking about the superhero comic book genre and how much it has changed in the last 20 years. Burton, who isn’t usually one for too much controversy, has hit out with a belter of an opinion which will no doubt be splitting comic book fans and film fans down the middle. (more…)
What, with all the news of Paul Feig‘s (Bridesmaids) Ghostbusters reboot, the planned Ghostbusters Spin-off starring Channing Tatum, Chris Pratt and a potential Ryan Gosling, and also the recent announcement that David Lynch’s Twin Peaks returning in Summer 2016 on Showtime, here’s another one been plucked straight out of the 80s nostalgia-vault for you. After nearly 27 years since Tim Burton directed Michael Keaton in the classic Oscar winning (Best Make-up) movie Beetlejuice, and after the long-gestating rumors that have been circulating the past few years of a sequel, Burton has confirmed that they are now closer than ever.

Today at San Diego Comic-Con (is anything else happening in the world at the moment?), the first full-length trailer for Jon Schnepp’s documentary, The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? (the question’s rhetorical, obviously) debuted and has now been released online. One of the weirder “what if” films of all time, Schnepp’s documentary digs at the “whys” behind the collapse of Tim Burton and Kevin Smith‘s potential superhero shitstorm. (more…)
As Nerd Media has been eagerly reporting, Beetlejuice 2 is well on the way to being summoned forth into the land of the living. Star–and ONLY actor who could possibly play the “Ghost With The Most”–Michael Keaton and director Tim Burton have both essentially confirmed their presence.
(and please remember my use of the word “essentially” if/when this information is denied/disproved)
Now it appears Winona Ryder is following suit. (more…)

Some of you might already know and to others it may be news, but Warner Bros. is moving ahead with plans to produce a sequel to Tim Burton’s 1988 hit movie Beetlejuice. And while there have been groans of pain from the general populace due to the fact that most of the original cast and crew appear to want nothing to do with the sequel, it looks as if there may be at least a small light at the end of the tunnel. If the rumormill is to be believed, Burton himself will be coming back to direct the second flick. (more…)

He’s seen The Exorcist about 167 times, and it keeps getting funnier every single time he sees it! Beetlejuice, love him or hate him, you can’t deny he is defiantly ‘the ghost with the most‘. [garabating]
