Tantalising rumours of a second Beetlejuice movie have been circulating since 2012, with RadioTimes.com reporting last year that director Tim Burton and actor Michael Keaton were in talks about a sequel.
And now Burton has confirmed that plans for a follow-up to the 1988 horror-comedy are very much alive.
“The film is a go and has been approved by the Warner Bros. team,” Burton told ShowbizSpy. “We have talked with the cast members we wanted for the film and they are all on board, this includes both Winona [Ryder] and Michael [Keaton]. We have the script in hand everything is in place all we need to do now is get ready to start filming.”
We’d call that horrifyingly good news.
