Beetlejuice Sequel
Random sort of news this morning regarding a potential Bettlejuice reboot. Yes they're saying reboot because of course remakes just isn't the cool thing to do and lacks originality. Schyeah, right.

Well the guy who's just written Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and the Tim Burton (Ah a connection!) Dark Shadows film looks to have moving forward with the reboot.

No details on what the story will be or cast news - its far, far, too early for that - but the message they're sending out at the moment is “reboot by advancing the storyline of the original”. Hmmm.

Call me sceptical but I don't think this will go anywhere. A film was muted a few years ago with Tim Burton himself working on a Hawaiian-set sequel but that never got anywhere, soI can see this disappearing down the same rabbit hole as well.

I'm a big fan of the original and not sure a "reboot" is in order. But then I've been saying that a lot these past few years and nobody seems to be listening.
