Is Tim Burton Directing ‘Beetlejuice 2′?


Everyone loves Beetlejuice, right? Like, it’s a movie that still holds up after all these years and makes great background viewing every time it comes on TBS kinda thing? Well, get yourself ready, because apparently Tim Burton is in talks to direct a second installment of the movie, with Michael Keaton reprising his lead role. Bring it on!!

From The Wrap:

Tim Burton’s involvement in “Beetlejuice 2? is no longer a rumor, as he’s officially in talks to direct the sequel for Warner Bros., multiple individuals familiar with the project have told TheWrap.

Michael Keaton is expected to reprise his role as the titular fast-talking, black-and-white stripe-wearing ghost with the most.

The Geffen Company, which produced the 1988 classic, will produce the sequel with Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg of KatzSmith Productions. Grahame-Smith, who penned the Burton-produced adaptation of “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter,” wrote the script that Warner Bros. has confidence in.

Well, we’ll see what becomes of that one. I’m not a Tim Burton fan at all, to be honest, but I did like some of his earlier stuff like Beetlejuice (and Edward Scissorhands, obviously). Also, have any of you ever sat and thought about what a hilarious name “Edward Scissorhands” actually is? I just did, and I’m cracking up.

Helena Bonham Carter Thinks Those Tim Burton Cheating Reports are Bullshit

tim burton helena bonham carter

Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter have been together since 2001. They have two kids together, they live in adjoining houses in London and they apparently don’t give much of a shit about cheating reports that hit the press every once in a while. This past week, it was claimed that Burton was photographed kissing some unnamed blonde woman outside a movie theatre in Hampstead last month.

Here’s what HB(i)C’s rep had to say to The Daily Express about that one:

“This is absolute nonsense. The pictures were taken whilst they were out and the large group includes family, friends and work colleagues.”

Word, that’s probably the case. Also, LOL to these two being the subject of reports like this right now. You literally never hear anything about their lives/relationships and I think they like it that way.

I mean, I suppose this could be true, but I just don’t buy it, for whatever reason. What do you think?

Watch This: The Trailer for Dark Shadows!

Back in January, Sarah told you guys all about this movie, Dark Shadows: it stars Johnny Depp as a vampire named Barnabus Collins, it’s based on the old television show of the same name, it’s directed by Tim Burton, and so of course it will also feature Helena Bonham Carter.

Also, doesn’t it look so good?

Ok, I know that a lot of people aren’t nearly as excited for this latest gem from Tim Burton and Johnny Depp, and that’s fair. I get that. I’ve never seen the original series, and I’d never even heard about it until I read about this movie, but I know it can be really upsetting when it feels like something you love so much gets stolen and twisted and soiled by someone else trying to celebrate it, so I won’t begrudge any haters for hatin’ on this movie I’m actually pretty excited about.

Another reason I want to see this film? Because it features Eva Green. You know who Eva Green is, right? She’s the actress who Johnny allegedly fell in love with, or at least slept with, which is what caused all those separation rumors about Johnny and his longtime lady love, Vanessa Paradis. Allegedly. And no, I haven’t heard anything about that split in a while.

But forget all the real life talk, there are vampires! And Michelle Pfeiffer, who’s always glorious! And the eternal love that is shared between Tim Burton and Johnny Depp! Everyone’s going to see this movie when it comes out in May, right?
