Michael Keaton Confirms Beetlejuice 2

Herner Klenthur

Just a little while ago Goon broke the news that Army of Darkness 2 is not going to happen. Now I get to break the news that Beetlejuice 2 is happening. At least for now.

A few weeks ago we told you that Tim Burton is in talks to go behind the camera for Beetlejuice 2 but it was not entirely solid that the movie was going to move ahead. Now however we have confirmation from a pretty solid source.

Michael Keaton was out and about when a camera man from TMZ asked him if he was doing Bettlejuise 2 which he replied to with a yes.

Beetlejuise is one of my all time favorite horror comedies and the thought of Tim Burton and Michael Keaton returning to do a sequel is great news. Are you excited for more Beetlejuice? How would you spin the story if you were writing it? Beetlejuice

        This is going to suck.

      2. Steve 'Drago San' Robshaw November 5, 2013 at 11:32 pm

        And the award for the sequel we didn’t need goes to…

        is tis legit or is it like army of darkness 2 full of shit?

      5. Dawn White November 5, 2013 at 11:33 pm

        Alright, can’t wait for it to come out. Tim Burton directing, should be good

      6. David Taylor November 5, 2013 at 11:33 pm

        Just tell me that Tim Burton won’t be returning. I’m so tired of his “kooky by numbers” approach to everything while failing to improve even moderately as a storyteller.

      7. Peter Ford November 5, 2013 at 11:35 pm

        I’d watch Michael Keaton take a shit, but this sequel is unnecessary

      14. Will Stanton November 5, 2013 at 11:50 pm

        Well, at least that fear is alleviated.

      16. Ralphy Pinder November 5, 2013 at 11:54 pm

        About time Burton did something original. And more Michael Keaton’s ALWAYS a bonus.

      17. Amber Clouse November 5, 2013 at 11:54 pm

        I’ll believe it when I see it.

        • Duffman November 6, 2013 at 10:22 pm

          Ya what is wrong with people for having different opinions than yourself… They DEFINITELY can’t be doing that. Having a child but acting totally immature. I feel sorry for that child, if that is you in the picture…

      25. Erica Smith November 6, 2013 at 12:49 am

        Woah, how the hell did we not know about this?

      26. Brad Biddix November 6, 2013 at 12:52 am

        Beats me. But Tim Burton is on my shit list. I may or may not be excited about this. I can’t tell.

      27. Erica Smith November 6, 2013 at 12:53 am

        Word. But you know we can’t not watch this.

      29. Adebayoakiode November 6, 2013 at 1:08 am

        They should do the second B.J. movie

      31. Marquand Schramm November 6, 2013 at 1:47 am

        Did you get your information from the same source as your Army of Darkness 2 info? Sorry, no harm meant, but had to ask. Love your site. Just saying!

      32. Toby Furney November 6, 2013 at 1:48 am

        Omg Casey Furney

      33. Junior Gonzales-Byrn November 6, 2013 at 1:50 am

        Yay! Give John Depp a brake!

      34. Joe Worth November 6, 2013 at 2:23 am

        Army of Darkness would have
        Been stupid . Army of Darkness was too Hollywood and not enough EVIL DEAD

      35. Casey Lynn Furney November 6, 2013 at 2:37 am

        Holy crap Toby Furney!!!

      36. DiZams DX November 6, 2013 at 3:43 am

        whose gonna play the girl?????

      37. bob101910 November 6, 2013 at 4:07 am

        I wouldn’t get your hopes up yet. Especially after reading all that stuff about Evil Dead sequels.

      38. Aratas Lupus November 6, 2013 at 5:38 am

        I don’t think so. Can’t be true

      39. Luca Modica November 6, 2013 at 6:22 am

        WTF! Why?! Take the money for this and every other shit idea, and put it into making Preacher the TV series. Look at the Walking Dead.

      40. Marlene Ann Vainisi November 6, 2013 at 12:27 pm

        i liked it

      41. Tony Calderone November 6, 2013 at 2:34 pm

      43. Alec Cizak November 6, 2013 at 6:42 pm

        Will Johnny Depp be playing a grown-up Winona Ryder?

      44. Alec Cizak November 6, 2013 at 6:42 pm

        Will Johnny Depp be playing a grown-up Winona Ryder?

      45. Scott November 7, 2013 at 6:15 pm

        wow, this great if they do it right, it was a family horror movie if that’s a real thing, lol just don’t want them to go overboard and forgot what made it famous and not try to make a BC 17, oil


      46. Jan Dijk November 9, 2013 at 7:09 pm

        dunno… i’ll give it a chance

      50. Gavin Lawley November 9, 2013 at 7:10 pm

        Please lord don’t let them fuck it up

      51. Gissele Montoya November 9, 2013 at 7:10 pm

        Hopefully, it’s not ruined by too much computer animation. Has a decent background story. Nothing will beat the original.

      52. Barton Hewett November 9, 2013 at 7:11 pm

        who really cares?

      53. Jake Crumb November 9, 2013 at 7:12 pm

        So Tim Burton gonna fuck another one of his classics. Put a dash of CGI, Johnny Depp Helena Bonham Carter and we got a sequel

      54. Karen Evans November 9, 2013 at 7:14 pm

        They will screw it up…they always do :(

      55. Heidi Schwoerer November 9, 2013 at 7:17 pm

        They should leave it alone. Some movies do not need a sequel & Beetlejuice is one of them.

      56. Dina Abdellatif Hussien November 9, 2013 at 7:19 pm

        My fav movie

      57. Daniel Richardson November 9, 2013 at 7:30 pm

        Eh. Keaton back?

        About time

      60. Abe Stark November 9, 2013 at 7:37 pm

        Tim Burton movies suck now. Also who writes your articles and where do they get their data? Every week its something debunking what you previously posted. First evil dead 2 is happening, then its not, then it is again. Same with Army of darkness. How bout not posting until you have solid information?

      61. Jeremy Arruda November 9, 2013 at 7:37 pm

        Tim Burton has nothing more to contribute to films.

      62. Eliza Tenhet November 9, 2013 at 7:38 pm


      63. Kerrith L Eckert November 9, 2013 at 7:43 pm

        I know this movie VERY well as Kristina watched it every day around age 5-6 for probably a year!

      64. Christopher Siano November 9, 2013 at 7:44 pm

        Not wasting my damn money

      65. Susie Tweedy November 9, 2013 at 7:53 pm

        Just hope it’s as good as the first one.

      66. BK Kinne November 9, 2013 at 7:54 pm

        Nice F’n model……honk honk

      67. John Merrill November 9, 2013 at 7:54 pm

        Screw you negative Nancys…I’m going to see it!

      68. Rourke Keegan November 9, 2013 at 8:05 pm

        Does anyone, and I mean ANYONE think this will end up as little more than Son of the Mask? I would be STUNNED if they got a single member of the original cast back, or had a script that came even close to the charm of the original. It was lightning in a bottle. Leave it alone.

          Reading the actual story is always such an amazing and informative experience since it mentions Michael Keaton is the one who confirmed it and Burton will be directing it

      69. Sofia Rivas November 9, 2013 at 8:07 pm

        Better not fucking suck.

      70. Michele Boyens Asquith November 9, 2013 at 8:14 pm

        YES,FINALLY. My second all time favorite movie.
        Who gonna play in it?????

      71. Stephen The-Noise Gallagher November 9, 2013 at 8:17 pm

        ONLY if it’s done by Burton… If it ain’t, I’ll avoid like the plague!

      72. Jennifer Reggettz LoPresti November 9, 2013 at 8:21 pm

        Burton and keaton are both back. It shouldn’t be to bad

      73. Justin Mendell November 9, 2013 at 8:26 pm

        Yes, yes, YES!

      88. James Elliot November 13, 2013 at 12:40 pm

        Looking forward. One of his best roles.
