by at .  Updated at . Comments

It’s been a while since we reported on anything concerning that long-talked-about sequel to Beetlejuice. In fact, it was 2011 that saw us reporting that a Beetlejuice sequel was in the works with Michael Keaton.

Michael Keaton Stars as Beetlejuice

The holdup was probably that the visionary director behind the instant classic, Tim Burton, either questioned a return to the director’s chair for the sequel, or was simply too busy. Now word is, Burton is taking the project quite seriously. And nothing gets a sequel moving quicker than its original director and star agreeing to come back.

Warner Bros. has made an official offer to Burton to direct, and word is the Dark Shadows helmer is excited about the prospect and eager to get Keaton back in that black-and-white striped suit.

Stay tuned, and until then… enjoy these Beetlejuice quotes and see why a sequel is so darn attractive!

Beetlejuice Quotes

Adam: What are your qualifications?
Beetlejuice: Ah. Well... I attended Juilliard... I'm a graduate of the Harvard business school. I travel quite extensively. I lived through the Black Plague and had a pretty good time during that. I've seen the Excorcist 167 times, and it keeps getting funnier every single time I see it. Not to mention the fact that you're talking to a dead guy! Now what do you think!? You think I'm qualified?

I'm the ghost with the most, babe.
