Tim Burton and Michael Keaton have been talking to each other about Beetlejuice 2, with the project looking more likely...

Michael Keaton is back on the big screen at the moment in the reboot of RoboCop, where he plays the not very pleasant boss of OmniCorp. But it's not the only project based on an 80s hit that he's involved with. For a while now, he's - inevitably - been linked to Beetlejuice 2 as well.

This one seems to be coming along too. David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith have penned a screenplay, and last year, it was revealed that both Michael Keaton and Tim Burton were set to board the film too.

Chatting to MTV News about the project, Keaton confirmed that "I’ve e-mailed Tim a couple of times, talked to the writer a couple of times, but all really, really preliminary stuff. I always said that’s the one thing I’d like to do again, if I ever did anything again. But it kind of required Tim to be involved some way or another".

He then added that "now it looks like he is involved. And without giving too much away, we've talked to each other, and e-mailed each other, and if he's in, it's going to be hard not to be in".

Burton's still finishing off his upcoming film Big Eyes, which has Christoph Waltz and Amy Adams on board (our early prediction: it might just be the film to win Adams an Oscar). After that? It might be full steam ahead for Beetlejuice 2....

(Beetlejuice. Beetlejuice. Beetlejuice. Bah. Nothing happened).
