Bosses at Warner Bros. are adapting cult film Beetlejuice for the stage.
While plans for a much-anticipated sequel are still up in the air, studio executives are setting their sights on Broadway, and have recruited Tony winner Alex Timbers to helm the new musical.
Details surrounding the show are scarce, but according to The New York Post, producers are aiming for the project to debut during the 2018-2019 Broadway season.
The news comes weeks after Timbers stepped away from a stage production of beloved Disney movie Frozen. He directed a developmental lab of the show earlier this year (16), but will not help bring it to Broadway was expected.
Meanwhile, rumours about a follow-up to the 1988 fantasy film, which starred Michael Keaton and Winona Ryder, continue to swirl, but no concrete plans have been revealed.
In April (16), director Tim Burton disputed reports suggesting he is ready to let cameras roll on a Beetlejuice sequel, telling Collider.com: "I have talked to Michael and I have talked to Winona , I've talked to a few people. It's something that I really would like to do in the right circumstances, but it's one of those films where it has to be right.
"It's not a kind of a movie that cries out (for a sequel), it's not the Beetlejuice trilogy. So it's something that if the elements are right - because I do love the character and Michael's amazing as that character..., so yeah we'll see. But there's nothing concrete yet."
