Hopefully, that will finally be the right one that will lead for the sequel to officially happen. Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg are set to produce through their KatzSmith Productions.

Official deals for the "Beetlejuice" follow-up have yet to be made with the filmmaker and his leading man, who are now shooting the live-action remake of Dumbo for Disney, although both parties have expressed their interest in the project in the past. They are now working on the upcoming live-action Dumbo movie.

If things seemed to be accelerating in recent years, with the assurance that Winona Ryder and Michael Keaton would be back, we really thought that it was won until that Tim Burton prefers doing his adaptation of Dumbo for Disney.

So, guys, are you stoked for a sequel or is it too little too late?

However, Deadline now reports that writer Mike Vukadinovich has been brought on board to rewrite the script. Vukadinovich recently wrote the screenplay for Rememory, starring Peter Dinklage and Anton Yelchin.

Upon its release, Beetlejuice achieved both critical and commercial success grossing $73.7 million on a $15 million budget.

A planned sequel titled Beetlejuice Goes Hawaiian was written in 1990 but never made it into production. It became so popular that an animated television show was aired for over two years, in which the film's original music composer Danny Elfman returned to retool the theme for the cartoon. So far, there's no release date scheduled for the sequel. You may share your excitement for Beetlejuice 2 at the comments below.
