Beetlejuice - Beetlejuice Sequel Planned

A 'Beetlejuice' sequel is in the works.

The 1988 movie - directed by Tim Burton and starring Michael Keaton and Winona Ryder - is set to get a follow-up worked on by David Katenzberg and Seth Grahame-Smith after they signed a production deal with Warner Bros.

Grahame-Smith, who wrote 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter' and 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' is set to write two scripts for the studio, one of which is likely to be 'Beetlejuice 2'.

He told Deadline.com: "We want to make big movies based on big ideas and inspired by the comedies we grew up loving."

The deal came about following the screenwriting work Grahame-Smith did with Tim on 'Dark Shadows', a forthcoming dark comedy starring Johnny Depp and Michelle Pfeiffer.

Despite only being an hour and a half long and making just $73 million at the cinema, 'Beetlejuice' - about a pair of ghosts who hire the services of a "bio-exorcist" to rid their home of its living owners - became a massive cult hit, and even won an Oscar for best make-up in 1989.
