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

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
