Beetlejuice 2 Gets Writers Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg

The 1988 classic comedy Beetlejuice may finally get a sequel after all these years, with Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg signing on to write Beetlejuice 2.

Both Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg signed an overall deal with Warner Bros., and it is believed the Beetlejuice sequel will be their first project under the pact. It is said this will not be a remake, but will advance the story line of the original Beetlejuice, which was directed by Tim Burton. The writers' deal sprung from the work that Seth Grahame-Smith performed on Tim Burton's Dark Shadows, which is currently in production.

It isn't known whether Tim Burton or star Michael Keaton will be involved in the Beetlejuice sequel at this time. Last year we reported that another Beetlejuice cast member, Geena Davis, expressed interest in returning for a sequel.
