Los Angeles (PTI) Veteran filmmaker Tim Burton says he has no clue about the status of “Beetlejuice” sequel featuring Michael Keaton.
The filmmaker, who recently directed Keaton in Disney’s reboot of “Dumbo”, said he is doubtful if the sequel to the 1988 fantasy horror will ever happen.
Burton was asked by USA Today about the status of the sequel, to which he replied: “Nothing, nothing.”
Then asked if it’s definitely happening, he said: “I don’t know. I doubt it.”
Rumours of a “Beetlejuice” sequel have been doing the rounds for years now, but nothing has been finalised yet.
“Beetlejuice Goes Hawaiian”, which took the demonic character to Hawaii, was green-lit after the big success of the original film, but never went into production.
In 2015, Winona Ryder had confirmed that a second film was in works. There were also reports of Mike Vukadinovich being roped in to write the movie.
Since 2017 there has been no update on the project.
