Get ready to leave the dark room that is your life because Deadline reports that the long-awaited Beetlejuice 2 just took a huge step forward in development at Warner Brothers.

Rememory screenwriter Mike Vukadinovich has reportedly taken over re-writing duties on the follow-up script to Tim Burton and Michael Keaton's 1988 horror-comedy cult mashup. Should the project really get off the ground, Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg (IT) would produce the film. 

The dynamic duo of Burton and Keaton are currently working on a live-action Dumbo remake for Disney, but are apparently eager to finally make a sequel to Beetlejuice that's been in the gestation period for close to 30 years, during which the original film has been re-released, used as the subject of a documentary, and adapted into a short-lived cartoon and Broadway musical

Will Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin reprise their roles? Surely, Winona Ryder should after her success with Stranger Things, which had a bit of a Burton-y vibe to it. Is Beetlejuice's head still tiny? Has he gone Hawaiin? We won't know until the movie's actually made, but maybe if we say "SEQUEL!" three times in a row, it might just appear.
