Chalk another ‘80s movie up to the reboot/sequel/remake trend. Deadline is reporting that Warner Bros. is set to reboot the 1988 Tim Burton-Michael Keaton comedy Beetlejuice with the intention of advancing the storyline from the original.
totally for this but only person i can see playing the ghost with the most is Jack Black
-HAVE A NICE DAY-
YOU PEOPLE ARE FULL OF S*%T.GET OVER YOURSELVES.BUNCH OF CRITICS THAT HAVE NO RIGHT TO BE.YOU COULDNT DO ANY BETTER.THEIR REMAKING IT FOR A REASON THE PEOPLE THAT WANT IT OUTWEIGH THE PEOPLE THAT DONT WANT IT.

I MYSELF HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS FOR OVER 20YRS.I JUST HOPE THEY BREING BACK MICHAEL KEATON.WITH MAKEUP IT WILL THE SAME OLD BEETLEJUICE WE LOVE.BEETLEJUICE IS A CHARACTER THAT SHOULD CONTINUE TO BE MADE OVER AND OVER AGAIN.WHAT WOULD MAKE IT EVEN BETTER IS IF THEY ALSO MAKE A SEQUEL TO THE NEW ONE AND THAT WOULD BE THREE MOVIES ALL TOGETHER(a trilogy).AS LONG AS THEIR AS GOOD AS THE ORIGINAL!!!-Beetlejuice,Beetlejuice,Beetlejuice-HAVE A NICE D
it seems soo far nobody is making original ideas...they all want to copy the "best of the best" and what made them the best is that it was new and fresh...now everything is like lets make the best better....or see if we can out shine it...why? I say hey classics best are priceless keeps...and some never touched or redone. I loved this movie and if they excuse my language ..shet it up...they will burn and i would hate to have anything shetty named in anyway close to sharing the name or likeness to it. I say leave the best alone and get new fresh ideas and make the director hall of fame. I mean next what donnie darko?...oh wait they did make part II of it...hmm yeah point taken lol.
Will we all mite as well for get them leaving it alone they never will. they thing the movies blonge to them when in fact the movies belong to us, Ok them remaking the movie not a good idea for the orangel cast is way to dam old to play in this movie,#2 Johnny Depp hell no he would suck at playing BeetleJuice maybe him as caption jack but not as BeetleJuice. I just feel that if they make this movie again it is going to SUCK big time and they know it. If it does SUCK the one's that saw it in the 80's are going to be very PISSED OFF about this movie. They need to leave thing alone........
Why would you fix some thing if it's not broken. They are screwing up again
Leave it alone! Where is the creativity? Stop ruining all these movies with remakes/rebooting. Just because you must spend that quota for the year to get a bigger one for the next does not make it right to ruin classic movies. Why dont you hire new directors/producers and give them a chance to let their minds create.
thanx i just watched this over at [BLOCKED WEBSITE]
I don't think anything should change with cast and crew. I really can't think of anyone better than Tim Burton to direct, and Michael Keaton did a phenomonal job as Beetlejuice. Although Wynona Ryder was ok as Lydia, you would DEFINITELY need someone younger for a reboot. But if they INSIST on getting a new cast for a Beetlejuice reboot, I would recommend: JOHNNY DEPP AS BEETLEJUICE and EMMA WATSON AS LYDIA. Aside from that, anyone other than Tim Burton directing is unacceptable.
They just need to fork out the cash and get Tim Burton back. screw everyone else. it's his movie. actor wise, Keaton is kinda OLD, so johnny Depp would be a good replacement if he can pull a mixture of Jack Sparrow (Captain) and Willy Wonka.
Keep Michael Keaton as Beetlejuice, and Tim Burton as Director...Its one of his most Defining films..
Despite that I'm a huge Depp fan, I think he's the same age or near there as Keaton and therefore should probably not do the role. As terrible scripted actor as he is, I could see Johnny Knoxville as being a good creepy and perverted Beetlejuice. :)
I think a sequel would be an interesting thing, it'd have to have the original cast or something like Ryder's daughter meeting Beetlejuice. I also dont get why there needs to be a remake of every movie that's ever been made. It's obvious that they make money, but that just proves that Hollywood is heartless and thinks that remaking every movie ever made will appeal to 'the younger demographic' when all i think the 'younger demographic' needs is the originals themselves. Why not rerelease them in theaters like I hear they're doing for Ghostbusters?
I'm leaving this comment for my little brother who is obsessed with Beetlejuice. He thinks it's a good idea to try and get Michael Keaton to play Beetlejuice again. He also thinks Kristen Stewart (from Twilight) would be a good actress to play Lydia. Also, he thinks Jamie Lee Curtis would be good cast as Delia, Lydia's mom.
I would love to see Michael Keaton and Wynona Rider playing some role in a remake or sequal. They both made the movie so great. It wouldn't be the same without them. I'd be happy, even if they play a small role, like Charleston Heston did in the Planet of the Apes remake.
We both are really excited to see a new Beetlejuice movie or sequal. :)
Keaton is the Ghost with the Most!!! Making a sequel without him is complete hogwash!!! As much as I love Baldwin, and loved Ryder's character, you still have nothing without Keaton.
i can't think of any actor that could beat Michael Keaton in this role. I think they should just leave well enough alone. BJ 2 couldn't be as good as the first. rita L.- houston tx
Has Hollywood seriously run out of ideas? It is bad enough that Yogi Bear and the Smurfs have been turned into trash, but now Beetlejuice. Leave these movies alone! Are you kidding me Footloose without Kevin Bacon! Look our kids should watch the originals and not see crappy remakes like Clash of the Titans and Nightmare on Elm Street, the beauty of these classics is just that. THEY ARE CLASSICS! Why dont we just remake Gone With the Wind or Casablanca oh wait maybe Creature From the Black Lagoon. You never F*** with the original! Guess what nobobdy likes these remakes, they are all written and casted poorly!
ABSOLUTELY NOT! I am sick of Hollywood making crappy-a$$ remakes of great 80s fun flicks! Fright Night, Footloose, Beetlejuice...these are classics! What's next? Sixteen Candles? Ferris Bueller's Day Off? Weird Science? The Goonies? They did not, and do not need to be remade for a "modern" audience! Come on Hollywood! Come up with original ideas! Stop trashing the classics!
Make a 2nd to expand on the original & use as many original cast members as possible. A this is what's happening years later type of story.
I'm more excited To hear about Abraham Lincoln: vampire hunter getting made.
Beetlejuice is my favorite movie of all time. I say to you leave him alone. But, if you must don't ^^^^ it up. Original cast and extras are a must. Go with a prequel, about beetlejuice claiming he can get rid of the land of the living and being sent into his exile. Then shoot it off with everyone committing suicide and becoming civil servants.
You won't be able to make a successful film without incorporating other factors like the cartoon. Don't ignore it or it will turn out like The Exorcist part 2, The Heretic.
If they need more advice let me know.
I agree!!! All these remakes, none of them do very good they just need to leave classic movies like this alone!..They redid Footloose,Conan, and they are about to redo Dirty Dancing. These movies are classics why ruin them!!! Soon they will go back and redo Gone With The Wind, West Side Story, hell maybe Scarface and Godfather.
"We want to make big movies based on big ideas and inspired by the comedies we grew up loving," Because we can't think of a single big idea on our own to make into a big movie. Imagination has left the studios. Give me an indie every time.
The original was great and I have personally thought about what could happen in a sequel. Hollywood does need to come up with fresh ideas and stop remaking or "tweaking" the good old programs.
i hope it's not some cheezy updated remake or a completly different people advancing the storyline
