Tim Burton: 'Beetlejuice 2 Would Need Good Script'
Filmmaker talks about possibility of sequel to much-loved comedy...
Tim Burton has discussed the prospect of a sequel to supernatural comedy Beetlejuice.
The filmmaker addressed the subject in an interview with Vulture, suggesting that it would only happen if there was a good script.
He said: "Those were fun characters, but I'd have to see what the script was like and if it was worth doing - I can't just make it because it's one of the worst 10 movies of the year.
"The first two films I did, Pee-Wee's Big Adventure and Beetlejuice, made the 10-worst-movies-of-the-year lists. Then, years later, people said they were my best movies. What? So if those were my best, I'm in real trouble."
Burton has previously said Michael Keaton would need to be on board to reprise the title role.
Asked whether his films were intended for children, he said: "Even if I wanted to analyse it, I'm not going to make everyone happy.
"It's easier when you're starting out and people don't really know what you are. But then you become a thing, and that's not really what you want. I never really targeted my films for kids.
"It's just what I like to make. But then people were saying The Nightmare Before Christmas was too scary for kids - too much singing, too scary. And then the kids loved it. So I've had conflicting information from the beginning."
