It looks like it's time to dust off your pinstripe Halloween costume.

Michael Keaton has revealed he'd sign up to star in Beetlejuice 2 "in a heartbeat".

The 58-year-old actor starred alongside Winona Rider, Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin in Tim Burton's 1988 comedy horror fantasy as charismatic freelance "bio-exorcist" ghost Beetlejuice, and confessed it is his only past role he'd like to reprise.

When asked if he'd like to appear in sequel to Beetlejuice, he told Moviehole.net: "Oh I'd do that in a heartbeat - absolutely, that's the one thing I'd love to do again."

The star of Multiplicity and Jack Frost added: "That's the only one I'd love to do."

Michael revealed back in 2005 he had discussed the possibility with Tim Burton.

And we both talked about it, and I think there was a script written once years ago that wasn't quite it. I would consider that, yeah, a lot. I would seriously consider that."

Geena Davis also said last month she would be keen to make a sequel to the movie.

She said: "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. I would do that!"

But she pointed out there may be technicalities for her reprising her role.

Geena said: "Thing is, do ghosts age? Wouldn't we be stuck in the age we were? Alec [Baldwin] and I would have to look as we did then - who knows, maybe we could? I better get in touch with Tim Burton."
