Michael Keaton Confirms Talks With Tim Burton For Beetlejuice 2

Beetlejuice Beetlejuice Beetlejuice!

While doing a press junket for the new Robocop movie, Michael Keaton confirmed he's been talking with Tim Burton about Beetlejuice 2, which is the closest thing to official confirmation that it's in the works that we've gotten.  We've talked about the rumors swirling around this sequel before but have gotten no real source to confirm Burton's involvement up to this point. The confirmed involvement of both Keaton and Burton, if the movie happens, certainly adds to hopes for a good Beetlejuice 2, as who knows what it would be like without either of them.

Mia Munselle discovered a GoPro camera on her property and discovered it had survived a fall from a plane and being chewed on by a pig.

This says some good things about the hardiness of these cameras, though! Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

Anansi Boys Coming To BBC As A Miniseries

This Makes Sense

Neil Gaiman's Anansi Boys, about the sons of the West African spider god, is going to be made into a BBC miniseries!  While a film adaptation has long been rumored and Gaiman even wrote a movie script for it, those plans fell apart at some point.  Given how well BBC adaptations usually go and that one of the film adaptations pitched to Gaiman involved changing the race of the main characters, this can probably be seen as a win-win!
