Winona Ryder Confirms ‘Beetlejuice 2’ Is Moving Forward
Hold on to your shrunken heads! Winona Ryder gave fans an update on the Beetlejuice sequel that should get them pretty excited.
The actress, who played Lydia Deetz in the 1988 original, visited Late Night with Seth Meyers on Monday night and revealed that the previously teased, long overdue sequel to the film is indeed still in the works.
“Um, I think I can confirm it, because Tim Burton did this interview — like, it was very hush hush, top secret … and then he was doing some press for Big Eyes and he did an on-camera interview and he said, ‘Oh yeah we’re doing it and Winona’s going to be in it,’ and I was like [shocked face].”
Beetlejuice debuted in 1988 and starred Michael Keaton as the title character. Along with Keaton and Ryder, Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin also co-starred in the dark comedy.
Burton was previously quoted as saying, ““There’s only one Beetlejuice, and that’s Michael. There is a script, and I would love to work with him 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.”
