For many years now, there have been a lot of fans around the world who have been calling for a Beetlejuice sequel and, following comments from those involved in the original movie in recent years, it almost looked like we were actually to see it become a reality. Fans have been very excited about Beetlejuice 2 and eager to see it happening but it might not take place after all.
Hollywood veteran Michael Keaton gave a fantastic performance in the lead role for the original Beetlejuice movie and it was widely suggested that he would definitely be open to returning for a sequel. However, Michael has now opened up about the possibility of appearing in Beetlejuice 2, and he has claimed that he believes it is too late to make it happen.
Keaton explained, "No. Zero. You always hear things, that this is happening, and people seem to know more about it than I do. It's possible that ship has sailed. The only way to do it is to do it right. So much of it was improvised and so much was beautifully handmade by the artist that is Tim Burton. If you can't get close to that, you leave it alone.
He added, "There are certain movies that are like Indian burial grounds. You never ride over them. Bad s**t happens if you cross that. You don't touch certain things. They are sacred."
With Michael Keaton pretty much ruling himself out of a Beetlejuice sequel it will surely not happen. If they decide to make the movie without him on board it will be a big mistake, so, for now, it seems that Beetlejuice 2 is not going to happen.
