For the past several years now, Warner Bros. and everyone involved have gone back and forth on Beetlejuice 2. The studio got the ball rolling in 2011 when they hired Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg to write, and since then, Tim Burton, Winona Ryder, and Michael Keaton have all weighed in every so often with varying degrees of optimism about the movie actually happening.

The last time Tim Burton and Eva Green teamed up, we got the fairly awful Dark Shadows adaptation. To be sure, the film’s failures weren’t Green’s fault — indeed, she was one of the few bright spots in it. Still, here’s hoping their new collaboration will turn out better.

Neither critics nor audiences much cared for X-Men: Apocalypse, the eighth entry in 20th Century Fox’s long-running comic book franchise.

But maybe the studio’s other big superpowered team-up, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, will have better luck.
Directed by Tim Burton and based on the bestselling novel by Ransom Riggs, the story concerns a young man (actual Tim Burton character Asa Butterfield) who stumbles across a hidden home for children with extraordinary abilities.

We’ve been hearing bits and pieces of news regarding Beetlejuice 2 for a few years now. Back in 2012, director Tim Burton was waiting to see how Seth Grahame-Smith (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) and David Katzenberg‘s script turned out, saying he’d keep an “open mind” about directing the sequel. The director’s interest in the project has significantly risen over the years, but he still has some understandable reservations about making the film.
Below, Tim Burton provides a Beetlejuice 2 update.

It’s been over six years since our last trip to Underland. In 2010, director Tim Burton reimagined Lewis Carroll‘s classic story with his box office hit, which made over a billion dollars worldwide.
