Michael Keaton - Michael Keaton Opens Up About Beetlejuice Sequel Plans

Actor Michael Keaton has given Beetlejuice fans a reason to celebrate after revealing details about a potential sequel.

Rumours surrounding the Batman star's involvement in the much-anticipated project have been swirling since last year (13), and in a recent interview the 62 year old confirmed he has been discussing the prospect of reprising his role as the kooky ghost with director Tim Burton.

He tells Mtv, "I've emailed Tim a couple of times, talked to the writer a couple of times, but all really, really preliminary stuff until relatively recently. I always said that (Beetlejuice) is the one thing I'd like to do again, if I ever did anything again."

The actor also reveals that Burton is set to return to direct the movie.

He continues, "It kind of required Tim to be involved some way or another. Now it looks like he is involved. And without giving too much away, we've talked to each other, and emailed each other, and if he's in, it's going to be hard not to be in."

In November (13), Winona Ryder confirmed reports she is in talks to reprise her role as Lydia Deetz in the film.

The original Beetlejuice hit theatres in 1988.
