The status of Tim Burton’s “Beetlejuice” sequel has been slowly progressing.

But recently, film screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith broke the news to Entertainment Weekly that he has completed the drafts of “Beetlejuice 2” script. Smith will be co-producing the movie sequel along with director Tim Burton.

Smith, who also wrote the script of “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” and “Dark Shadows”, also told The Hollywood Reporter that plot for the “Beetlejuice” sequel is in present (or modern) day, although he can’t say much about the film yet.
“The trade doesn’t have any direct quotes from the filmmaker, but he also apparently confirmed that the film will be taking a Michael Keaton-suggested ‘less is more’ approach with the eponymous character,” stated in a report on Cinema Blend.

Smith also previously turned down the idea of rebooting the film, but suggested to make a movie sequel and bring Michael Keaton back in the film.

The 63-year-old actor, Keaton, played the titular role in this 1988 film with Alec Baldwin as Adam Maitland and Winona Ryder as Lynda Deetz.

Last December, Burton announced in an interview with MTV that he will be directing “Beetlejuice 2” and that Ryder will be returning.

“Michael, and her … and that character, I just miss it; there’s some freedom about that character that I love,” Burton said.

The 1988 horror-comedy film “Beetlejuice” revolves around the deceased young couple Adam and Barbara Maitland (Baldwin and Geena Davis) who become ghosts. They haunt their former house and the devious ghost Betelguese (but pronounced as Beetlejuice) who tries to scare away the new dwellers, the Deetz family.

The film became the 10th-highest grossing film of 1988; with its $15-million budget, it earned $73.7 million ($8 million in opening weekend in the United States).

“Beetlejuice 2” has currently no production timetable as Burton is still busy with his upcoming directorial movie adaptation of Ransom Riggs’ “Miss Peregrine: Home of Peculiar Children”, which is set to be released in March 2016.
