Looks Like Beetlejuice 2 Isn't Dead Yet After All

Written by 

In Hollywood, sometimes an idea has just enough staying power to keep itself in play, despite taking its sweet time to actually develop into a feature. A good example of this is Beetlejuice 2, a sequel that's been in the works for quite sometime only to die what seems like a million deaths.

Now, however, the project is one to life a million-and-one, because Warner Bros. has hired Mike Vukadinovich as the new writer on the sequel to the 1988 horror/comedy classic.

While Beetlejuice saw Tim Burton and Michael Keaton putting their heads together as director and actor for the first time, Beetlejuice 2 is looking to reunite the two presumably not too long after they've collaborated on Disney's live-action remake of Dumbo, which is currently in production. Deadline first reported the news about the hiring, and their report doesn't include any details about the follow-ups story, but adds that Mike Vukadinovich comes from recent experiences on films like Rememory and the Hulu series Runaways. So his experience level in both smaller and mid-level scope projects just might help him deliver on a sequel that we thought we'd never see.

This latest draft comes not only after a previous draft written by Seth Grahame-Smith, but also just a few month after Michael Keaton himself announced that the project probably wasn't going to come together.
