When asked about his involvement in the rumored Beetlejuice 2 movie, Burton replied: “I only know if I’m making a film when I’m actually on the set shooting. I try to go back to the root of everything. It springs from a seed and then it grows. I am working on ideas. We’ll see how it goes. How’s that for a none answer?”

The original horror-comedy was both critically acclaimed, a commercial hit, and screamingly good fun. With a budget of $15 million, it went on to gross $74.2 million.

Beetlejuice also brought home the Oscar for Best Makeup, and three Saturn Awards for Best Horror Film, Best Makeup, and Best Supporting Actress. The supernatural comedy horror stars Batman Return-fame Michael Keaton, Stranger Things‘ Winona Ryder, Catherine Ohara, Alec Baldwin, and A League of Their Own Geena Davis.

Beetlejuice tells the story of a young, ghost couple who are trying to get rid of the new occupants of their home. They hire a deranged demon to scare away the new owners.
