Keaton Longing For Beetlejuice Sequel

Movie star MICHAEL KEATON is desperate to bring the dead back to life in a sequel to his hit 1988 comedy BEETLEJUICE.

The BATMAN star loved playing the mischievous ghoul opposite ALEC BALDWIN and GEENA DAVIS and wants to make a follow-up to TIM BURTON's cult classic.

He says, "That is a movie I would like to do again. I would really like to make another Beetlejuice because it's totally 100 per cent original, with such talented people involved. Everybody forgets how good that cast was.

"The trick to do it again is not to over-tech it. There was something great about the basics of how we put things together.

"They were literally done by people holding things and spinning things like plywood and stuff. It was fun."
