Tim Burton on Beetlejuice 2: “I wouldn’t call it so much a sequel”

20 December 2014 1:54 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tim Burton has been talking a lot about Beetlejuice 2 lately, stating that it’s “probably closer than ever” and confirming Winona Ryder will return to the cast alongside Michael Keaton, and now the director has shared a few more words during a promotional interview for his new film Big Eyes, revealing that he “wouldn’t call it so much a sequel”.

“There’s a script now, that I think is closer to what it could be and I’m excited about it,” Burton told Yahoo. “I wouldn’t call it so much a sequel, but it’ll have some characters. It’s a bit too early to say but it’s definitely something that’s on my radar and something I’d love to do.”

Following the release of Big Eyes, Burton will turn his attention to Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, which is set to arrive in 2016. So, »

15-Year-Old Claire Danes On Getting Famous: 'I Just Want to Be a Sane Person'

17 December 2014 1:08 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

While we're waiting for Homeland's fourth season to wrap, let's rewind to a simpler time, back when Claire Danes was a smiling teenager ... on rollerblades?

Yep, in this 1994 footage from the Et archives, a 15-year-old Danes is seen blading on the Venice Beach boardwalk and musing about newfound fame being just around the corner.

"It's a little frightening, but I don't want to be afraid of it," Danes said at the time.

Keep in mind that at this point in her career, the actress wasn't actually all that famous; she had spent just a few short weeks in the public eye as Angela Chase, the teen lead of My So-Called Life. (Before the ABC family drama from the producers of thirtysomething came along, her TV experience included little more than a Law & Order guest spot, pretty much a prerequisite for every actor.)

"I do feel a little powerless right now," she told Et »

Tim Burton confirms Winona Ryder return for Beetlejuice 2

17 December 2014 10:57 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Over the past couple of weeks both Michael Keaton and Tim Burton have been speaking about the long-rumoured Beetlejuice 2 – with Burton stating this week that “it’s probably closer than ever” – and now the director has confirmed that Winona Ryder will be back for the sequel.

“Oh yeah,” Burton told MTV News when asked if he’d be directing the follow-up to the 1988 supernatural comedy during a promotional interview for his new film Big Eyes. MTV then asked if Ryder would be back, with Burton responding: “Oh yeah, yeah yeah yeah. Oh yeah, oh yeah. Yeah yeah, oh yeah.”

After presumably tiring of the word “yeah”, the filmmaker then added that: “I worked with [Ryder], I hadn’t seen her in awhile… and she was so great. I was so happy to see her. So those kinds of elements mean something to me. Michael, and her… and that character, I just miss it, »

“Oh yeah, yeah yeah yeah. Oh yeah, oh yeah. Yeah yeah, oh yeah,” 

Ryder hinted that she would be included in the film about a year ago. It’s good to get a good solid confirmation from Burton, though. He also said,

“I worked with [Ryder], I hadn’t seen her in awhile… and she was so great. I was so happy to see her. So those kinds of elements mean something to me. Michael, and her… and that character, I just miss it, there’s some freedom about that character that I love.”

In a previous interview, Burton said this sequel is closer than ever to happening. »

Tim Burton Says Beetlejuice 2 Script Is “Pretty Good”, Hopes to Speak With Michael Keaton Soon

16 December 2014 10:06 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

For whatever reason I'm still pretty excited for Beetlejuice 2.  Maybe it's the uptick in Tim Burton's quality of work in recent years.  After hitting a creative nadir with Alice In Wonderland (what a mindfuck it has to be when your worst movies are the most successful ones financially and your best ones, like Ed Wood, bomb the hardest) I actually really enjoyed Frankenweenie quite a bit.  And I hear good things about Big Eyes, so I'm considering the possibility that Burton has his mojo back after a few fallow years. Burton recently spoke about the script for Beetlejuice 2 (written by Seth Grahame-Smith) calling it "pretty good."  Which I hope is code for "great" since Burton is promising that this movie will happen.  Also confirmed?  Winona Ryder (though that's really nothing new).  Pretty much confirmed?  Michael Keaton.  Hit the jump for more on Beetlejuice 2. I wouldn't worry »

Burton On Superhero & Winona Ryder Returns

16 December 2014 7:12 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Continuing doing press for "Big Eyes," filmmaker Tim Burton spoke with Yahoo UK and was asked about the possibility of him returning to the superhero genre. He reveals that there might be another film of that type in him but he's not sure. He's also concerned about people getting sick of the current dominance of the genre:

"Marvel, they have their thing and there's a certain formula to it all which seems to still be working, but how many times can you say 'you're wearing a funny costume' with the tights and stuff? That's been going on for twenty years now. Yes, we all know that superheroes are damaged individuals.

Maybe we need to see a happy superhero?  I think there is [another superhero film in me], but I don't know. You think we need more superhero movies? It keeps on going. It's amazing how long it's been going for and it just keeps getting stronger and stronger. »

Tim Burton on Beetlejuice 2: “It’s probably closer than ever”

15 December 2014 9:19 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It was 1988 when we saw the first incarnation of Tim Burton’s bizarre comedy fantasy Beetlejuice. Now, after over a quarter century and several failed sequel attempts, it appears the likelihood of Michael Keaton resurrecting the legendary character is better than ever.

It was late last year when Winona Ryder all but confirmed that a sequel was indeed in the works. “I love Lydia so much. She was such a huge part of me. I would be really interested in what she is doing 27 years later,” said Ryder. “I would never go near [a sequel] if it was not Tim and Michael, because those guys, I love.”

Things died down a bit after that but in February of this year they started swirling again after Keaton mentioned he was in discussions with Burton about potentially bringing Betelgeuse back to the big screen. “I always said that [Beetlejuice] is the one thing I’d like to do again, »

'Beetlejuice 2' Is Closer Than Ever to Happening

15 December 2014 8:25 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in March 2013, screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith announced that he had started writing the script for Beetlejuice 2. We've heard very little about the project since then, except that original director Tim Burton and star Michael Keaton will likely return. While doing press for his upcoming drama Big Eyes, Tim Burton revealed that he is still working on the script, and that it's closer than ever to being ready for production.

"It's a character that I love and I miss and I miss actually working with Michael. There's only one Betelgeuse. We're working on a script and I think it's probably closer than ever and I'd love to work with him again."

Seth Grahame-Smith and his writing partner David Katzenberg were first hired to write the script back in September 2011, but it's clear that everyone involved will spend as much time as it takes to get the script just right. Of course, »
