: Following the rumor yesterday that Tim Burton and Michael Keaton were negotiating to return to shoot a Beetlejuice
sequel, The Wrap
(and several others) have since confirmed those talks to be happening. Aside from the news that both men will most likely be making this sequel in the near future, we do not know when that will be. The Wrap says Beetlejuice 2
will not be Burton's next film, so assuming he shoots something before that (most likely Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children),
then it's fairly safe to say we won't be seeing a Beetlejuice
sequel before the latter part of 2015, but most likely 2016.

We've known for some time that a Beetlejuice
sequel was in the works -- and when the story broke, one of the caveats of it happening involved director Tim Burton
giving the project his blessing. Well, according to our friends the Schmoes Know
, Burton has given the new project more than just his blessing -- he's also reportedly interested in returning to direct the installment.
According to the unnamed studio source, Burton was considering dropping out of his new project Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, and some folks got the idea that the decision was motivated by his desire to return to one of his most successful films. As it turns out, there's apparently been some schedule shifting and now Burton could potentially direct both films.
While this is still just a rumor, we're intrigued by the idea of Burton (and potentially Michael Keaton) returning to the series. I've not been a big fan of Burton's recent output, but this is the title that could help him recapture the magic of his youth. What do you guys think?
