Tim Burton has confirmed that he might make a Beetlejuice sequel.

The director told MTV that writer Seth Grahame-Smith is working on ideas for a follow-up to the 1988 comedy horror fantasy , which starred Michael Keaton, Winona Rider, Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin.

He said: "I love that character, and Michael [Keaton] is so great in it. I always think about how great and fun that character was, so I just said to [Vampire Hunter writer] Seth [Grahame-Smith], 'If you have some idea about it, go for it, and then I'll look at it freshly'.

"In the past, I tried some things, but that was way back when. He seemed really excited about it."

Burton continued: "Michael was so great in it. I'm sure he'd strangely tap right back into it."

Keaton has previously expressed an interest in reprising the role of charismatic freelance "bio-exorcist" ghost Beetlejuice.

In 2010 he told Moviehole.net: "Oh I'd do that in a heartbeat - absolutely, that's the one thing I'd love to do again."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

Beware of spending beyond your means. Sticking to a budget will help you survive the festive season relatively unscathed. It will be easier than you think to let your grip on the purse strings slip especially as the big day draws near. Let Christmas be about loving, sharing and giving. Spend quality time preparing food, making decorations and playing games together. If you haven't sent all your cards or round robin emails give some thought about what you will be sharing with others this year.More
