“Beetlejuice is the most fucking fun to do while working. And do you know what it is? We’re doing it exactly like we did the first movie… There’s a woman in the big waiting room for the afterlife literally with a fishing line – I want people to know because I love it – pulling a cat’s tail to make it sit. move”.
Keaton went on to say that he and Burton agreed a long time ago that if they were to make this sequel, they had toe make the movie the same way they did the original.
“Burton]and I talked about it years and years ago, telling no one. I said, ‘If it’s done, first of all, we’ve both said we’ll do it many times. We both agreed that if it’s done , It had to be the closest thing to how we did it the first time.. Inventing things, making things happen, improvising and riffing, but literally things made by hand, like people creating things with their hands and building something. It’s the most fun I’ve had in a long time.”
