Michael Keaton is like "demon-possessed" in Beetlejuice Beetlejuice, says Tim Burton

Michael Keaton was doubtful about he could play Beetlejuice again in Tim Burton's upcoming film Beetlejuice Beetlejuice.

"The ubiquity of Beetlejuice as a character in the culture created its own challenges. That was weird. To be honest with you—I'm being very frank—it was off-putting to look and go, ‘I don’t want to look like all these little things—what was the thing that started this?,’” stated Keaton in an interview with Empire.

As per Keaton’s co-actors Jenna Ortega and Catherine O’Hara and filmmaker Burton, it seems like the the actor has found Beetlejuice again.

“It was like he was possessed by a demon, because he just went right back into it,” stated Burton.

Ortega recalled, “It was like an animal with a gun had just walked into the room. To watch him physically change and appear and Michael Keaton to be gone, and for me to be dealing with this Beetlejuice guy…It blew my mind.”

“It was insane,” said O’Hara.

At least, Keaton is happy about the sequel to Beetlejuice.

“I love it. “I absolutely love this thing. And I don’t [usually] talk like that. I unabashedly love this. It was not easy to pull off, and I think we did it in spades,” stated Keaton.

The film also stars Jenna Ortega and Winona Ryder in the lead roles. Monica Bellucci, Willem Dafoe, Justin Theroux, Arthur Conti, Burn Gorman, and Filipe Cates are also part of the film. Burton directed it from a script by Alfred Gough and Miles Millar.
