Beetlejuice 2…Really?

After getting an Oscar nomination for starring in a movie about an actor haunted by a past role, Michael Keaton wants to do another “Beetlejuice”?

A report from iHorror says that filming for Beetlejuice 2 is set for later this year.

Um, why?

Look, I know the original Beetlejuice was a popular movie when it came out, and there’s been talk of a sequel off and on since then.  There was even a title floating around, I believe, known as Beetlejuice Goes Hawaiian.  And a certain Ghost with the Most would probably lend itself to more stories if anyone really wanted to…but why now?  It’s been a couple decades, and even with supposed interest from Tim Burton, Michael Keaton, and Winona Ryder, this sounds a lot like rounding up the surviving members of the Animal House cast and doing another one of them…

Crap, I think I just gave Hollywood an idea!
