According to Grahame-Smith, Michael Keaton is expected to return reprising his role, and the sotry will take place 26 or 27 years after the original.
“We talked for a couple of hours and talked about big picture stuff. It’s a priority for Warner Bros. It’s a priority for Tim.”
“[T]he star of the movie has to be Michael Keaton as Beetlejuice, and it’s a true continuation 26 years later… Not just throwing him in as a cameo going, ‘Hey, it’s me. I endorse this movie.’”
