Yes, Michael Keaton Says He Wants to Make Beetlejuice Sequel

People: Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice!

Oscar nominee Michael Keaton says he's ready to get reacquainted with one of his iconic roles. With buzz building for a possible follow-up to Beetlejuice, director Tim Burton's 1988 horror-comedy in which Keaton memorably starred as a manic, demented spirit alongside costars Winona Ryder, Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin, Keaton tells PEOPLE he's excited about the prospect of reuniting with Burton, who also directed him in two Batman films. "I hope," says the Birdman actor. "We don't know yet."

It needs to have an extremely solid script. I want something that is somewhat "old fashioned" with a creepy nature to it, but isn't over the top creepy. I'd also like to see it with older methods of visuals too, and not filled to the brim with CGI.

We move forward, not backwards. Remember that.

Hollywood seems to be doing a lot of moving backward with reboot this reboot that, and taking something great and making people hate the franchise with crummy sequels.

All I'm saying is they made the movie creepy, Hollywood hasn't been able to make a "classic" movie in some time now.

Don't know if it's even worth going back to by this point. To me, Beetlejuice is just a movie that was a product of its time and something barely translatable to movie fans now. Kids are surely past that kind of dark camp by now. Are they?

Yeah, they are. Well.... they were forced to be. Everything "for children" needs to be white washed now. Anything slightly "creepy" is banned. (Probably why Nick places 90's cartoons at midnight and not during the day)

I think this film would be more targeted toward an older audience though. Probably upper teens and up.
