‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’ Writer Hired For ‘Beetlejuice’ Reboot

With the film now nearing its 24th anniversary, Tim Burton‘s beloved Beetlejuice is apparently looking to get a new entry.

Deadline is reporting that both David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith (author of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies) have been tapped by WB to pen a sequel to the film, which originally starred Michael Keaton as the titular lead. The original movie also starred Alec Baldwin and Winona Ryder, but to calm fears, the outlet also reports that this new installment will not be a remake, but instead, a reboot “by advancing the storyline of the original.”

Personally, as long as Burton himself stays the hell away from this thing, I’ll be stoked. I’m not a huge fan of this film, so I don’t mind the idea of a reboot, as given the right creative team, this could actually work. That said, there really doesn’t seem to be much of a reason for this thing to really exist. What do you think?

  1. This could only work if Michael Keaton is on board. His performance as Beetlejuice was abso-fucking-lutly perfect, I can’t imagine anyone else playing that part. To me he IS Beetlejuice. If he’s in it – I love this idea! If not – I hope everyone involved will die slow and painful death…
