Forget the Entourage movie. Here's some seriously exciting news out of Hollywood:

Tim Burton and Michael Keaton are on the verge of reuniting... for Beetlejuice 2!

According to Variety, Keaton would reprise his role as this beloved monster, with Burton once again directing and Seth Grahame Smith penning the sequel's script.

The writer Tweeted a couple days ago that he has "big news" coming and it's both "very daunting and very exciting."

Burton is not known for sequels (his last one was Batman Returns in 1992) and he's currently working with Christoph Waltz and Amy Adams on Big Eyes.

But he's close to Grahame-Smith and Keaton is believed to also have an influence on the famous director.

The original Beetlejuice came out in 1988 and starred Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin as a couple who moved in to a haunted new house. To get the spirits of the previous owners out, they hired Keaton's beloved ghoul.

What do you think of this news? Would you go see a Beetlejuice sequel?
