Could Beetlejuice 2 FINALLY begin filming later this year?

It's hard to believe that it's been 24 years since the original Beetlejuice film was released. But judging by the latest comments from the proposed sequel's director, we won't have to wait much longer to see Michael Keaton back in action as our favorite weirdo ghost.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, co-writer of the proposed sequel Seth Grahame-Smith offered up some hope that filming could actually start later this year.

"The Beetlejuice sequel will come after Unholy Night in my schedule," he said, referring to his alt-history horror novel he is currently adapting for film. "The first opportunity to tackle that will probably be later this year."

Rumors have been swirling about Beetlejuice 2 for a while, and the current story is that original director Tim Burton will be involved, along with original star Michael Keaton—which means we're talking about a direct sequel, and not a reboot.

Sound off: Are you looking forward to more Beetlejuice, or do you wish they'd just leave the classic alone?
