Winona Ryder confirms she'll be in Beetlejuice 2 with Michael Keaton

Earlier this year we heard that Seth Grahame-Smith (DARK SHADOWS, ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER) was set to pen the upcoming BEETLEJUICE 2, and at that time seemed content with the "less is more" approach to Michael Keaton showing up in much of the film's runtime. Given that Keaton would be the major draw, I don't really see that happening, but he's not the only player to return. Director Tim Burton boasted about his love for the character of Lydia, portrayed by Winona Ryder, but now we have word from the woman herself that she'll be in the sequel.

Winona Ryder on the status of BEETLEJUICE 2:

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 press for BIG EYES and he did an on-camera interview and he said, ‘Oh yeah, we’re doing it and Winona’s gonna be in it.'

Talk for a BEETLEJUICE 2 heats up about every 6 months or so, so I'm not exactly holding my breath for this one. Still, Burton is in post-production for MISS PREGRINE'S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN which hits in March of next year. If he's adamant on making BEETLEJUICE 2 happen, perhaps we'll hear some official word soon.

We've got verbal commitments from Keaton, Burton, and Ryder. Unlike with Ghostbusters 3, so far we haven't had any hold-outs. also, just watched Big Eyes, and glad to see Burton can still do good work when he wants to.

Now, let's see if they can deliver something worthy of calling a Beetlejuice movie.

SO is this movie gonna be made or not? It's becoming another Ghostbusters 3 situation & we all know what happened, it gotta a pointless reboot & the original star sold out for a cameo.

Winona Ryder: "I could really use the work"

I haven't been impressed with Tim Burton's output in recent years, but I'm curious what he would do with a BEETLEJUICE sequel.
