For years, the idea of a Beetlejuice sequel has been just that – an idea. The development process has churned through script after script, potential concepts have come and go and the various cast members, including Michael Keaton, have probably grown sick of being asked when it might happen. So while this latest news nugget comes from the usually reputably Jeff Sneider, we'll still wait and see.
As Sneider points out, Alec Baldwin, currently mired in legal disputes following a tragic death on the set of indie movie Rust, is unlikely to return for this, but we could see Geena Davis back. When asked most recently (well, 2013) about it, Ryder had said she'd heard it'll be set in the present day, rather than aiming to recreate the past or reboot anything.
Nothing yet on whether director Tim Burton will return – he's run hot and cold on the idea through its various potential incarnations.
Still, the new report says the movie could be shooting this year if all falls into place, so someone has clearly said ol' Beetlejuice's name three times...
