El director, Seth Grahame-Smith, estaba haciendo una entrevista con ShockTillYouDrop sobre su próxima película, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter y se le pregunto sobre la posibilidad de una Beetlejuice 2 con Michael Keaton.
Shock asked him for the latest on the project and to see how close the sequel was to becoming a reality. “It’s a reality in the sense that I met with Michael Keaton last week,” Grahame-Smith said. “We talked for a couple of hours and talked about big picture stuff. It’s a priority for Warner Bros. It’s a priority for Tim. Right now, I am writing an animated movie for Tim based on an idea of mine. Then I adapt ‘Unholy Night’ [based on the upcoming book]. The third I am hoping is ‘Beetlejuice’ in terms of writing schedule.”
