Michael Keaton shares details about Beetlejuice sequel

Actor Michael Keaton opened up about the upcoming sequel of his iconic 1988 film, Beetlejuice. The makers recently revealed that the sequel has been titled Beetlejuice Beetlejuice.

In a recent interview with People magazine, the actor who plays the rowdy spirit confessed that he and director Tim Burton were hesitant and cautious about filming a sequel to the classic, but ended up having a great time working on it.

"We thought, 'You got to get this right. Otherwise, just don't do it. Let's just go on with our lives and do other things.' So I was hesitant and cautious, and [Burton] was probably equally as hesitant and cautious over all these years," he said. "Once we got there, I said, 'OK, let's just go for it. Let's just see if we can do it if we can pull this off.'"

Keaton shared that early in production, he and the filmmaker also discussed how neither one of them was particularly interested in doing something that was too technology-heavy.

“It had to feel handmade,” he said. “What made it fun was watching somebody in the corner actually holding something up for you, to watch everybody in the shrunken head room and say, ‘Those are people under there, operating these things, trying to get it right.'”

He continued, “It’s the most exciting thing when you get to do that again after years of standing in front of a giant screen, pretending somebody’s across the way from you.”

Monica Belluci will be seen playing the role of Beetlejuice's wife. Additionally, Wednesday-fame Jenna Ortega is also a part of the cast, and she will be seen as Ryder’s daughter. Willem Dafoe plays an afterlife law enforcement officer. Justin Theroux and Catherine O'Hara will also be seen in the sequel. 

The original Beetlejuice also starred Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, Jeffrey Jordan, and Catherine O'Hara among others.

The plot details of Beetlejuice Beetlejuice are kept under wraps by the makers. However, it is known that the film will be a direct sequel to Burton's 1988 original Beetlejuice
