Keaton may be scarier without makeup these days.



Tim Burton doesn't usually make sequels (if you made Batman Returns, would you?), but he may be changing his ways very soon. He nad Michael Keaton reportedly are coming up with a plan to make a followup to 1988's Beetlejuice. The Saturday morning cartoon doesn't count.

Variety says Burton is working on a deal to direct, with Keaton back as the star, with a script potentially conjured by original writer Seth Grahame Smith, who tweeted cryptically on Oct. 16 he had "lots of work ahead." Like trying to decide whether or not Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin would return, probably.

Keaton has wanted to talk about the role since Warner Bros announced the development of a sequel, but Burton is new. Maybe after he and Keaton made Dark Shadows, he decided he couldn't make a second Beetlejuice any worse.
