YOUR WEB SITE REFERS TO YOU AS HAVING A "BRILLIANT AND TWISTED MIND." DID YOU WRITE THAT? [Laughs] I didn't write that. But I'll take "brilliant" anytime I can get it. "Twisted"? I don't feel like a twisted person. I just feel like a fan of genre. A fan of genre movies and literature. If that makes me twisted, then I'll take it. Brilliant and twisted? So be it. I wear it as a badge of honor. But moving forward, I'm more interested in telling straight genre scary stories, and not necessarily ones that rely on any pre-existing material. That's where I see myself heading.
WHAT'S THE STATUS OF YOUR SCRIPT FOR BEETLEJUICE 2? Everyone is waiting for me to write the story that's good enough to get everybody back. It's on my shoulders right now. I am thinking about it, but I've gotta write the script for Unholy Night first.
JUST IN TIME FOR THE HOLIDAYS, 2013? We'll see.
