Warner Bros. has been trying to get Beetlejuice 2 off the ground almost since the original hit theaters, with the project going through any number of different iterations over the last nearly 30 years.

Beetlejuice debuted back in 1988 also starring Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis as ghosts who unleashed Beetlejuice in order to get rid of a family now living in their house. Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg will produce if this ever actually happens.

Deadline notes no deals are anywhere near completion with Tim Burton or Michael Keaton, but they state they are hearing the two are excited about returning for the sequel.

Mike Vukadinovich (Rememory) is the latest writer to be handed a copy of The Handbook for the Recently Deceased in an attempt to conjure Beetlejuice 2 into reality. He also wrote for the upcoming TV show Marvel's Runaways and Mr. Toad's Wild Ride, a feature film based on the Disneyland ride, for Disney.

Upon its release, Beetlejuice achieved both critical and commercial success grossing $73.7 million on a $15 million budget. The film spawned an animated series while Burton and Keaton went on to reunite for Batman and Batman Returns.

Although the original story for Beetlejuice (written by Michael McDowell) was much more horrific and twisted, it was given a make-over by Warren Skaaren in what we know and love today. So far, there's no release date scheduled for the sequel.
