We've got some terrible news about the upcoming Beetlejuice 2

Earlier this month, Tim Burton fans raised themselves from the gloom to gather around the light of the internet in celebration.

Why? Because these posters had stoked their macabre hearts... 

These apparent promotional materials had added to the fires of a rumour that begun after Burton told ShowbizSpy that a sequel to 1988's cult classic Beetlejuice "is a go". Winona Ryder and Michael Keaton were signed on, the script was in hand and all that needed to happen was for the cameras to start rolling. 

Except none of the above is true. 

The promotional posters? A well-made photoshop job, with Keaton's based on this photo taken in 2014 for The Hollywood Reporter.

Burton's comments to ShowbizSpy? Apparently the director was talking out of turn, with a representative for the Gothic visionary contacting the film site to deliver a firm slap on the wrists:

Tim Burton did not confirm Beetlejuice 2 as the movie is not in development. Tim’s focus is entirely on Miss Preegrine’s Home For Peculiar Children set for a September 30 2016 release and developing Dumbo

However - while Burton's representative might have been attempting to put out some fires for Warner Bros., there are still embers smouldering. Ryder has publicly commented on the long-awaited sequel, while Burton even mentioned the creation of a new script for the project in a press interview for Frankenweenie...

So - officially, the Beetlejuice 2 film hasn't been confirmed, it isn't in production and there are no official posters for it.

Unofficially - we'll leave you to join all the dots.
