Deadline reports that a Beetlejuice sequel will likely come into existence at some point. KatzSmith Productions partners David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith (author of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, as well as the screenwriter for the film versions of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and Tim Burton's Dark Shadows) have just signed a two-year first-look feature producing deal at Warner Bros., and one of their first projects will be a sequel to the 1988 comedy. Grahame-Smith will likely write the script for the sequel. No word on a projected release date as of yet.
Other projects that may be included in the deal are We Three Kings (an adaptation of Grahame-Smith's next revisionist novel about what the Three Wise Men were really up to on Christmas Eve), Bryantology (about a man who invents a religion based around himself as a tax loophole) and, most interestingly, Night of the Living, a stop-motion animated comedy about a town of monsters who find themselves besieged by an invasion of living humans, which Tim Burton himself might be producing with KatzSmith.
