Geena Davis says she’d be happy to haunt the upcoming Beetlejuice sequel.

The actress, who played newly-departed ghost Barbara Maitland in Tim Burton’s 1988 classic, was asked recently if she’d reprise that role for the film’s follow-up.

“I did hear that it’s really happening,” she told ETonline of the sequel. “No one’s talked to me about it. I would love to! That was one of my favorite movies, too.”

But while she’s game to return, Davis did note one point that could prevent her and her on-screen husband, Alec Baldwin, from returning as Barbara and Adam Maitland.

“Ghosts probably don’t age, and it’s going to be 30 years now. Of course, I haven’t aged, but I think Alec Baldwin maybe has aged, perhaps,” she joked.

Winona Ryder confirmed last month that a sequel is happening, and Burton and Beetlejuice himself (a.k.a. Michael Keaton) have also said plans for the project are in motion.

Last December, the director said, “There is a script, and I would love to work with [Keaton] again. I think there is now a better chance than ever… I miss that character. There’s something that’s cathartic and amazing about it. I think it’s closer than ever.”
