Burton to make Beetlejuice sequel?

Tim Burton is said to be mulling over whether to make a sequel to Beetlejuice.

The director had a hit with the film about a dead couple trying to rid their house of its new owners in 1988, and is said to have been offered the chance to direct a follow up by Warner Bros, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Michael Keaton starred as Beetlejuice in the original film, but it's not yet known whether he will have any involvement in a sequel.

Tim is already a producer on the film with Beetlejuice TV series producer David Geffen, but is believed not to have seen the scripts for the new film yet.

The next film he directs will be Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children, an adaptation of the Ransom Riggs novel, which is due to be released in cinemas in July 2014.
