Tim Burton is a busy, busy guy. He’s got “Dark Shadows” coming out, and that promises to be every bit as weird as the original soap opera. He’s involved in “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”. And a feature-length, stop-animation remake of “Frankenweenie.”
But in an interview with MTV, he pipes up with what might be the worst idea we’ve ever heard: a “Beetlejuice” sequel.
Thankfully, this is just something in the pitch stage for now, so, Tim, you can nip this one in the bud. It’s not that we hate “Beetlejuice”. We love “Beetlejuice”. It’s hilarious, and one of the best movies of the ’80s.
But it’s been nearly twenty-five years, man. Sometimes, you need to let things go.
If you want to help us, see what you can do to get the “Beetlejuice” cartoon released on DVD. That would be a lot more welcome.
