Beetlejuice 2 Fan-Made Trailer Will Get You Hyped for the Real Thing

Beetlejuice 2 Fan-Made Trailer Will Get You Hyped for the Real Thing
The original Beetlejuice movie is 30 years old and talks of Beetlejuice 2 have been around just as long. Late last year it was revealed that Mike Vukadinovich was trying to write a sequel that would include both Tim Burton and Michael Keaton. However, fans know not to hold their breath while waiting for the project to ever get off of the ground. Since then, it was announced that a Beetlejuice musical was in the works, pretty much burying any idea of Beetlejuice 2 hitting theaters any time soon. Now, we have a new fan-made trailer for the sequel that is almost too good and will make you wish that it was real.

The new fan-made trailer for Beetlejuice 2 starts off like an updated version of the first movie with a young couple falling in love, getting married, and then getting into a horrific car crash. The couple are now

Beetlejuice 2 Fan-Made Trailer Will Leave You Dying For The Real Thing

This year marks the 30th anniversary of Tim Burton’s strange unusual horror/comedy Beetlejuice, which has got fans wishing for that long-touted sequel once again. In the absence of any official updates on that front, though, one YouTube user has now taken it upon themselves to create a teaser trailer for the belated follow-up, and we must say, it’s rather well done.

Echoing the events of the original 1988 movie, the teaser imagines the sequel following a young couple as they adjust to the afterlife once they’re killed in a car accident. Original ghosts the Maitlands also put in appearances as the couple’s new mentors, through some cleverly chosen footage of Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin as they appear now. Also, look out for clips of Catherine O’Hara, who played Delia Deetz, and Winona Ryder, whose role as Lydia Deetz offered the actress her first big break.

Beetlejuice Celebrates Its 30th Birthday With Awesome New Posters

Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice was released on March 30th, 1988, which means that it’s now been 30 years since the ghost with the most first exploded onto cinema screens. It’s an auspicious birthday, too, coinciding with Beetlejuice’s (sort of) return to theaters (as a Vr avatar in Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One).

If for some reason you haven’t seen the film, it’s a ghost story with the twist being that the heroes are a pair of ghosts trying to get rid of the obnoxious new tenants in their house. Their haunting skills aren’t great, though, so they call in an expert: haunter extraordinaire Beetlejuice!

Now that I’ve said his name three times, I guess it’d be as good time as any to introduce these seriously cool fan posters that’ve been cooked up to celebrate the movie’s birthday:

Beetlejuice’s Original Ending Was Much Darker Than What We Got

Today – March 30th, 2018 – marks the 30th anniversary of Beetlejuice, the quirky horror comedy that launched director Tim Burton into the big leagues and provided star Michael Keaton with one of his most iconic roles (probably just second to his portrayal of Batman). Even after several decades, the film is still a cult favourite with a legion of fans and is now getting its own stage musical. It could have been a very different, much darker, movie, though, if things had gone according to the original plan.

Yahoo! chatted with the film’s writer, Larry Wilson, recently to discuss some little-known facts about Beetlejuice. Among other things, he revealed that the initial idea for the ending saw Winona Ryder’s goth girl Lydia Deetz die in a fire.

“Our first ending was Lydia — she died in a fire and was able to join Barbara and Adam in the afterlife. A couple of people said to us,

Beetlejuice Is Becoming A Stage Musical

This week marks 30 years since the release of Beetlejuice, the quirky horror-comedy that launched director Tim Burton into the big leagues and provided star Michael Keaton with one of his most iconic roles (probably just second to his portrayal of Batman). Even after several decades, the film is still a cult favourite with a legion of fans. Enough, it seems, to get the movie its very own stage musical.

The Hollywood Reporter is telling us that Beetlejuice: The Musical will hit the boards for its preview run in October, ahead of its pre-Broadway stint at Washington’s National Theater. The music and lyrics have been supplied by Eddie Perfect, while Scott Brown and Anthony King have co-written the book, which is inspired by Michael McDowell and Larry Wilson’s script for Burton’s classic movie. Alex Timbers is signed on to direct.

The cast has yet to be announced for the production,

Beetlejuice Musical Is Coming to Washington D.C. This Fall

Beetlejuice Musical Is Coming to Washington D.C. This Fall
Beetlejuice is making his way from the screen to the stage. Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures has announced that their Beetlejuice musical is heading to Washington D.C. this October for its initial run. The hope is that the play will eventually make its way to Broadway in New York, but the current roadmap for those plans has yet to be revealed. Much of that will probably have to do with how this run of shows in D.C. goes, but those of us who have been waiting around somewhat hopelessly for Beetlejuice 2 may have the next best thing to look forward to.

This Beetlejuice musical serves as an adaptation of Tim Burton's 1988 classic movie, which starred Michael Keaton in the titular role, alongside the likes of Winona Ryder, Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis. As far as we know, none of the cast members from the movie are involved in the stage production.

Beetlejuice 2 still alive, hires new writer

Mike Cecchini Oct 13, 2017

There's still a Beetlejuice sequel in the offing - and it even has a new writer...

They just won't let Beetlejuice die. Warner Bros. has been trying to get Beetlejuice 2 off the ground almost since the original hit theaters, with the project going through any number of different iterations over the last nearly 30 years. Despite the fact that sequels this belated don't make the most sense under the very best of circumstances, let alone when one features characters who are dead and therefore shouldn't be aging anymore, there are still plans to get Beetlejuice 2 made with both Michael Keaton and Tim Burton.

Beetlejuice 2 Finally Moves Forward with New Writer

There's some new life for Beetlejuice 2. The project has been in development, in some form or another, for years and has never found its way to becoming a reality. Now, Warner Bros. is giving it another try, as they've hired screenwriter Mike Vukadinovich to pen a new version of the script for Beetlejuice 2. Depending on how that goes, we may see Tim Burton and Michael Keaton return for the sequel, but it sounds like we're a long way from that actually happening. But the movie is in active development.

The news comes courtesy of Deadline, who report that, while Warner Bros. is working on a new script for Beetlejuice 2, that doesn't mean the movie is actually going to happen. The report notes that Tim Burton, who directed the original movie, and Michael Keaton, who brought the titular character of Beetlejuice to life, have not yet officially inked a deal to return.

Beetlejuice 2 is Actually Moving Forward and it Has a New Writer

Over the past few years, there's been a lot of talk about a sequel to Tim Burton's classic film Beetlejuice. It looked like it was actually really close to happening in 2016. In one day Tim Burton said that film was ready to start shooting and then a few hours later said it wasn't in development. We haven't really heard anything regarding the movie since, other than Michael Keaton saying, "it's possible that ship has sailed."

Now today it's being reported that Warner Bros. is putting Beetlejuice 2 back into development and they've hired Mike Vukadinovich (Rememory) to rewrite the script that was originally written by Seth Grahame-Smith (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter). 

Burton is currently working on Dumbo for Disney, so maybe Warner Bros. is looking to get Beetlejuice 2 into a place of development where Burton can jump on board and direct when he's done with Dumbo.

Beetlejuice 2 Gets A New Lease Of Life As Warner Drafts In Screenwriter Mike Vukadinovich

Mike Vukadinovich has been tasked with resurrecting Beetlejuice 2 from the brink of irrelevancy.

Deadline has the scoop, confirming that Vukadinovich has been drafted in to pen a new treatment for the long-in-development sequel. Neither Tim Burton nor Michael Keaton have signed on just yet, though Deadline is reporting that both director and star are interested in revisiting the genre oddity of ’88, possibly courting Winona Ryder back to the Netherworld in the process.

It’s worth pointing out that Burton and Keaton are currently working together on the live-action Dumbo that is poised to take flight at Disney, thereby joining a long list of reimagined fairytales that includes everything from Mulan to Jon Favreau’s star-studded rendition of The Lion King. For Beetlejuice 2, though, the project currently has Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg of KatzSmith Productions on board to produce, but beyond that, there’s not much to report at this early,
