Sequel Rumors:  Tim Burton in talks to make Beetlejuice 2!  http://www.rollingstone.com/movies/news/tim-burton-to-direct-beetlejuice-2-report-20131021

The news made the morning talk shows the week before Halloween 2013.

Fans who love Beetlejuice are excited because this moview was a zany mix of goth, horror, slapstick & silly. Think of it as the "country mice," albeit the dead country mice, meet the "city mice," goth/horror style. The timeless Winona Ryder does what she does best--play the dark underdog--so well in this movie. Alec Baldwin & Geena Davis expand their comedic roots. But it's Michael Keaton, far far removed from his Batman alter ego, who steals the show.

Tim Burton, please please bring us a Beetlejuice version that's not above the humor of the first. Make the story as oddly interesting as the first, and age it as much as your main audience. We'd love to see an older version the characters as a comparison/contrast to our own lives.
