“Beetlejuice” Reboot On The Horizon At Warner Bros.

“Beetlejuice” Reboot On The Horizon At Warner Bros.

It seems like every week there's word from Hollywood that yet another classic movie is being eyed for a potential reboot. And just in time to welcome you back from your Labor Day holiday, Deadline reports that Warner Bros. Studios is setting up a reboot/sequel of the Beetlejuice franchise with producers David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith.

Of course this means that the 1988 original will be completely ignored, and in its place will be a glossier version filled with the most up-to-date technology and, most likely, a cheesy 3D gimmick. Katzenberg and Grahame-Smith are getting a pretty sweet deal to simply rehash a story that was told two decades ago.

The 1988 Tim Burton directed classic featured grotesque humor and a memorable performance by Michael Keaton, so we’ll have to be patient as the choices for director and main stars begin to slowly trickle down over the next few months/years in order to gauge if this new Beetlejuice will be something more than a cash grab.
