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 "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.
