Could the rumors be true?
Tim Burton is reportedly in negotiations to direct a sequel to his 1988 hit movie Beetlejuice, according to several trade outlets. The 55-year-old filmmaker has received an offer from Warner Bros. to helm the sequel.
Seth Grahame-Smith—who worked with Burton twice in 2012, on Dark Shadows and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter—penned the script. He will produce the movie with his partner, David Katzenberg. Burton has yet to read the script.
Grahame-Smith sparked sequel rumors with a single tweet on Oct. 16, writing, "Big news today. Very exciting, and very daunting. Lots of work ahead."
