Tim Burton's Beetlejuice will celebrate its 30th anniversary next year, and to celebrate the film's third decade in existence, French filmmaker Fred China has teamed up with Adam F. Goldberg ("The Goldbergs") and Lee Leshen (Back in Time, Ghostheads) to create a new documentary!
The feature-length documentary film, entitled Documentary For The Recently Deceased: The Making of Beetlejuice, will cover all the aspects of the Beetlejuice production: from filming in East Corinth, Vermont, to the stop motion and special effects work, as well as a series of exclusive interviews and rare behind the scenes archives acquired by the director Fred China over the years.
Thanks to the contributors of the first Indiegogo campaign in August 2017, the team were able to complete the first round of interviews all around the west coast of the USA. They've now launched a new Kickstarter to raise more funds to finish the campaign.
