For whatever reason I’m still pretty excited for Beetlejuice 2.  Maybe it’s the uptick in Tim Burton‘s quality of work in recent years.  After hitting a creative nadir with Alice In Wonderland (what a mindfuck it has to be when your worst movies are the most successful ones financially and your best ones, like Ed Wood, bomb the hardest) I actually really enjoyed Frankenweenie quite a bit.  And I hear good things about Big Eyes, so I’m considering the possibility that Burton has his mojo back after a few fallow years.

Burton recently spoke about the script for Beetlejuice 2 (written by Seth Grahame-Smith) calling it “pretty good.”  Which I hope is code for “great” since Burton is promising that this movie will happen.  Also confirmed?  Winona Ryder (though that’s really nothing new).  Pretty much confirmed?  Michael Keaton.  Hit the jump for more on Beetlejuice 2.

Read Damon Lindelof’s Draft of the PROMETHEUS Script

No matter what you thought about Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus (I thought it was great), it’s amazing that people are still talking about it.  I say this because in our culture of always moving onto the next thing once something’s come out, I love that people are still discussing the ideas and mythology, and what they’d like to see in a sequel (which I hear is definitely moving forward).

As most of you know, Prometheus was penned by two screenwriters: Jon Spaihts and Damon Lindelof, in addition to the original conception of the franchise elements from Ronald Shusett and the late Dan O’Bannon.  After a number of drafts by Spaihts, Lindelof was brought in to balance the story and to expand on character relationships and mythology, but to leave the characters and the narrative structure in place.  Continued after the jump.
