Davis Wants Beetlejuice Sequel
GEENA DAVIS is hoping rumours of a BEETLEJUICE sequel are true - because she is keen to reprise her role in TIM BURTON's ghoulish comedy.
The Thelma & Louise actress starred in the original 1988 picture alongside Alec Baldwin as her onscreen husband and Michael Keaton in the title role. The story followed a deceased young married couple who haunt their former home with the help of a mischievous spirit.
Speculation about a possible follow-up has been rife in recent months, and Davis admits she would definitely sign up if Burton decided to bring the movie back from the dead.
She tells Moviehole.net, "It's funny, (another journalist) just asked me about a sequel to Beetlejuice - which, though I haven't heard anything about it, might be interesting. I would do that!
"Thing is, do ghosts age? Wouldn't we be stuck in the age we were? Alec and I would have to look as we did then - who knows, maybe we could? I better get in touch with Tim Burton."
Rumours of a sequel first emerged in the 1990s but never came to fruition, while Keaton broached the idea of a follow-up back in 2005 - insisting he would "love" to go back to Beetlejuice: "At one point, I had the conversation with Tim, saying 'I love this movie so much; I think there's one more in there somewhere.' And we both talked about it, and I think there was a script written once years ago that wasn't quite it. I would consider that, yeah, a lot. I would seriously consider that."
