Beetlejuice 2 (TBA)

Beetlejuice 2 Release Date Set With Original Cast Members Michael Keaton And Winona Ryder Ready To Reprise Their Roles

I had no clue that this was even in the works....unless we have already talked about it and I forgot. Anyway, I need to revisit the Original as I haven't seen it in years and I don't remember much. It's been THAT long.

I don't understand the thinking of doing a sequel years , no decades later.

Yea I'm looking at you Ghostbusters 3

That was my immediate thought as well. It's called striking while the iron is hot. The Studios seem to forget about who their audience is going to be when either....or both movies are released. These new movies will be targeting a young crowd, one that most likely has never seen or heard of the first films. And as far as the older audience is concerned, most will probably not care, thus dwindling an already small fan base. Now you have already lost revenue before shooting a single frame of film thus ensuring a smaller opening box office return,

I honestly think what's happening is that the execs in charge are about our age (and I'm including Mac, even though he's older than I am), and they're basically trying to recreate the VHS collection they had when they were young.  That's it.  That's why we're getting all these remakes.  Ninja Turtles, Ghostbusters at some point, Bad Boys 3, Rush Hour 4 they wanna make (Jackie doesn't want to, thank god)...

Bad Boys 3, Rush Hour 4

What the f*ck?! Why? There is no demand for either to get another installment. Both franchises are DOA.

So are the stars if they hold off making the flicks any longer...

Sure, there's no demand from US, the audience, but the studio would rather make Bad Boys 3 and Rush Hour 4 than Original Franchise 1.  The executive's primary mission is not to get fired, that's why you go for what seems like a sure thing, every time.
