Apparently if Tim Burton says 'Beetlejuice 2' enough times, it'll actually happen ...
Rumors have long been circling about a potential 'Beetlejuice 2,' most of them coming from the original director, who's been vocal about a sequel. Well, as crazy as it might sound, Burton is actually in talks now to join the project for Warner Bros.
The last time we heard from the latest adaptation of 'Pinocchio,' Robert Downey Jr. was attached to star as Geppetto, Tim Burton was attached to direct and 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' writer Jane Goldman was rewriting Bryan Fuller's script. In the months since that development, it looks like another big decision has been made in the film's development. For one thing, Burton is out and Ben Stiller is in. Secondly, in addition to taking on the role of the Pinocchio's creator/father, Downey Jr. may also play the living puppet himself.
'Alice in Wonderland' made over $1 billion worldwide so it was only a matter of time before Disney moved forward on a sequel. And now they're officially moving forward on 'Alice in Wonderland 2' and all we can wonder is...what took so long?
The 1990 suburban fairy tale 'Edward Scissorhands' was the first of many collaborations between director Tim Burton and Johnny Depp, the film's star. And that almost didn't happen, as Tom Cruise, Tom Hanks and even Michael Jackson were considered for the title role before it went to Depp.
