Is it time for the triumphant return of the Ghost with the Most?

Moviehole reports that Geena Davis, who played the newly deceased Barbara Maitland in director Tim Burton's 1988 supernatural comedy 'Beetlejuice,' has said that she's definitely interested in a sequel.

"It's funny, [another journalist] just asked me about a sequel to 'Beetlejuice' -- which, though I haven't heard anything about it, might be interesting," Davis told Moviehole. "I would do that!" Is it time for the triumphant return of the Ghost with the Most?

Moviehole reports that Geena Davis, who played the newly deceased Barbara Maitland in director Tim Burton's 1988 supernatural comedy 'Beetlejuice,' has said that she's definitely interested in a sequel.

"It's funny, [another journalist] just asked me about a sequel to 'Beetlejuice' -- which, though I haven't heard anything about it, might be interesting," Davis told Moviehole. "I would do that!"

'Beetlejuice' tells the story of a now-dead young couple who hire an obnoxious "bio-exorcist" (Michael Keaton) to scare away the yuppie family that has moved into its beloved country home. The idea of a 'Beetlejuice' sequel has been kicked around since the early '90s, when a script entitled 'Beetlejuice Goes Hawaiian' popped up. Warner Bros. has also considered going the direct-to-video route with a sequel.

Geena Davis isn't the only 'Beetlejuice' alum who's interested in returning for a sequel -- Michael Keaton himself said in a 2005 interview with JoBlo that he and Tim Burton were discussing how much they love the original film, and that Keaton would love to return for another round of haunting.

The question is: What would be the plot of the perfect 'Beetlejuice' sequel? Maybe Beetlejuice is the victim of a haunting himself this time around, and he has to hire the Maitlands to help him out? Maybe Beetlejuice is somehow resurrected and gets into wacky misadventures with attractive twentysomethings in New York City?

What do you think?
