It looks like Beetlejuice may turn the juice on Broadway and see what shakes loose.
Tony-nominated director and writer Alex Timber, best known for directing “Rocky: The Musical,” is rumored to be helming the stage version of Tim Burton’s 1988 classic, “Beetlejuice,” according to the New York Post. Details of the production remain sketchy at this point, but indicate that the show is being prepped for the 2018 – 2019 Broadway season.
While the musical version of the movie is moving forward, the proposed sequel, “Beetlejuice 2,” seems to have stalled out. In a recent interview with Collider, Winona Ryder (who played Lydia Deetz in the original), didn’t seem very optimistic a sequel would happen — with the original stars, at least.
“I don’t really know what’s going on with that. Obviously, it was an iconic film. The only way it could really ever be done is with Tim [Burton] and Michael [Keaton],” she said. “I don’t know. There’s something that really resonates with all ages, with that film. It’s interesting. I think it would be great if it happened, if it was the right circumstances.”
If you’re in need of a refresher, “Beetlejuice” was directed by Tim Burton and stars Michael Keaton, Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, Catherine O’Hara and Winona Ryder. It is available on Blu-Ray, DVD and digital download.
