KatzSmith Productions partners, David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith have just signed a two-year first-look feature producing deal at Warner Bros. While rights are still being worked out, one of their first projects is expected to be a sequel to Beetlejuice, the 1988 film that starred Michael Keaton as a ghoul hired by a recently deceased couple to drive the new owners out of their house. Tim Burton and Michael Keaton made the movie while they were working on the studio’s first Batman film. It also starred Alec Baldwin, Winona Ryder and Geena Davis.
The film WILL NOT be a remake; the intention is to reboot it by advancing the storyline of the original, which was done by The Geffen Company and Warner Bros.
Now go dust off that pull string Beetlejuice doll and prepare for the ghost with the most’s return!
