Beetlejuice 2 is all but confirmed with Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and Dark Shadows writer Seth Grahame-Smith penning the screenplay and both Tim Burton and Michael Keaton looking set to return. Now it seems that Winona Ryder is interested in joining the project as well.
In an interview with The Daily Beast, Ryder said, "I'm kind of sworn to secrecy, but it sounds like it might be happening." Although she didn't confirm exactly if she would be reprising her role, she did shed some light on as to when the film will take place: "It's not a remake, it's 27 years later. And I have to say, I love Lydia so much. She was such a huge part of me. I would be really interested in what she is doing 27 years later. I would never go near [a sequel] if it was not Tim and Michael, because those guys, I love."

Speaking to the Daily Beast, Ryder suggested that she will be back for the follow-up by saying she's "sworn to secrecy" on the project.
"It sounds like it might be happening," she commented, adding that she is aware of the difficulty of making a sequel to a beloved film.
"It's a very precious movie to people. So there are a lot people like, 'Don't'... It's not a remake. It's 27 years later.

With Tim Burton ('Sleep Hollow') reportedly shuffling things around in order to score a directing gig on long-awaited comedy horror sequel 'Beetlejuice 2' and actor Michael Keaton ('White Noise') keen to reprise his famous role as the ghost with the most all things are looking rosy for the new project. And now during a recent interview with The Daily Beast actress Winona Ryder, who played Lydia Deetz in the 1988 original, it appears that she may be making an appearance in the follow-up. If Burton takes the helm he'll be directing from a script prepared by Seth Grahame-Smith ('Dark Shadows') and his partner David Katzenberg. You can check out what Winona had to say on the subject below. »
Could it be that Winona Ryder is about to “go ahead and make our millennium”? While it was recently confirmed that director Tim Burton and star Michael Keaton are involved in revisiting their 1988 hit comedy, Beetlejuice – the story of a recently deceased young couple trying to exorcise a new, obnoxious family from their home – there was no news of the rest of the original cast. It’s a whole new day now, however, as Winona Ryder – Beetlejuice’s gloriously gothic outcast, Lydia Deetz – was clearly ‘in the know’ about Beetlejuice 2 when she recently spoke to The Daily Beast:
“I’m kind of sworn to secrecy. But it sounds like it might be happening. It’s not a remake, it’s 27 years later. And I have to say, I love Lydia so much. She was such a huge part of me. I would be really interested in what she is doing 27 years later. »

Plans for Beetlejuice 2 seem to be gathering momentum, and the suggestion remains that Tim Burton will return to make his first sequel since 1992's Batman Returns. Nothing has been officially confirmed with regards personnel (outside of the writing team: Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg), but it wouldn't be much of a film if Michael Keaton didn't return, for a start. He's indicated, fortunately, that he will be back.
Furthermore, it looks as if Winona Ryder is on board, too. She was chatting to The Daily Beast, and was asked if she was set to return to reprise the role of Lydia Deetz in the new movie. Confirming that the new film is not a remake, she then said that "I'm kind of sworn to »
Last month, we reported that Beetlejuice 2 may finally be making its way to production 25 years after the 1988 cult classic hit theatres. Original director of the horror-comedy hit, Tim Burton (Edward Scissorhands, Batman) and his lead star Michael Keaton (Batman, Batman Returns) have both been reported to return for the sequel. The only question left on peoples lips was whether or not the wonderful Winona Ryder would be involved in Beetlejuice 2.
Now Ryder has confirmed in a recent interview that she would be interested in doing the sequel and it sounds as if she is pretty much locked so long as Burton and Keaton are involved. Ryder played Lydia, a Gothic teenager who moved into the haunted house, along with her father and step mother, still occupied by a recently deceased couple who call on the mischievous title character for help.

There have been talks of a "Beetlejuice" sequel ever since the first one hit theaters in 1988. Then Warner Bros started taking the idea of a follow-up serious and entered talks with Seth Grahame-Smith (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) to write the script. Since then Grahame-Smith revealed that Tim Burton may be interested in directing the sequel and that Michael Keaton will return as Beetlejuice. And now, Winona Ryder has commented on whether she'll reprise her role as Lydia Deetz. Speaking to The Daily Beast, the actress said that "Beetlejuice 2" will not be a remake, adding: "I'm kind of sworn to secrecy, but it sounds like it might be happening." »
Fortunately, the quirky director has a few intriguing projects lined up for him to make before he resurrects The Ghost with the Most, drawing from a script that was penned by Seth Grahame-Smith (Dark Shadows, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter). If Burton is able to maintain his current stride, then he could build on the momentum he gained from last year’s well-received Frankenweenie; and thus, get everyone more enthused about seeing a Beetlejuice sequel in the near future.
Assuming that Burton’s negotiations result in a deal, the plan is for him ...

The Beetlejuice sequel is ever closer to becoming a reality after years of lingering in the darkest depths of development limbo. Seth Grahame-Smith is the man charged with writing the latest script and there has been chatter that Tim Burton is ready to come back and direct his old mucker Michael Keaton in the lead role. Now, talking to The Daily Beast, Keaton’s co-star Winona Ryder is hinting that she might be back as well.Ryder, of course, played the troubled Lydia Deetz, who moves with her annoying family into a house that was formerly owned by Adam and Barbara Maitland (Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis), who died in a car accident and are haunting the place. They contract Beetlejuice, an insane bio-exorcist, to remove the new humans from what they still see as their home. Lydia takes a shine to the pair, but Beetlejuice decides he likes her even more… »
Just before Halloween, we learned that Tim Burton and Michael Keaton were officially in talks to reunite for Beetlejuice 2, a sequel to the 1988 horror comedy that is held in high regard by many cinephiles. Rumors of a sequel had circulated for awhile, and then the project came closer to reality with author/screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith set to script the sequel that was going to be developed for Warner Bros. The involvement of Burton and Keaton gives the project a huge push now, but we've been wondering if any of the original cast members would return, and now we have a line on one. It seems Winona Ryder will be returning as Lydia. The outcast, gothic teen was an integral part of the original film as she didn't fit in with her family and found solace and friendship in the dead couple (Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis) whose spirits inhabited the house. »

Could this be a leaked excerpt from Josh Trank's Fantastic Four Reboot script? Several trusted sources within our ranks say "yes." Should this information be believed? Probably not, but it's still very interesting nonetheless. News broke out earlier today that in March of 2014 the director Josh Trank is to start filming "principal photography" at previously scouted-out locations in and around the state of Louisiana, primarily in it's capital city of Baton Rouge. Now with local "Pelican State" residents debating whether or not the Louisiana State Capitol Building will be stand-in for the world-famous Baxter Building, another curious untraceable rumor is being thrown around social media sites like Twitter and Reddit. A supposed "leaked logline" said to be pulled from an unfinished draft of the movie's script, (assumed to be written by Josh Trank and Seth Grahame-Smith before Simon Kinberg arrived on the project) is leading some to speculate if »

Between Ghostbusters III, Army of Darkness 2, and now Beetlejuice 2, I'm ready to punch someone in the friggin' face. Could the ghost with the most actually be returning? Michael Keaton gave a quick update to the vultures over at TMZ.
Said vulture approached Keaton with his camera while he was out and about to ask if he'd be doing Beetlejuice 2. Keaton's response? "Yes." As if that means anything anymore.

Beetlejuice is one of my stop-every-thing-must-watch movies. If it’s playing on TV, we’re watching it. I love the idea of another Beetlejuice movie but it would not be done in any manner of justice without the combined awesomeness of director Tim Burton and undead star Michael Keaton.
We reported back in September of 2011 that Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg of KatzSmith Productions were looking to make the sequel a reality. Now they’ve managed to get Burton and Keaton in talks to do the sequel (tentatively titled Beetlejuice 2) for Warner Bros., according to The Wrap. And while I agree with them that Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will likely be made before Beetlejuice 2, it is happening. That is worth getting excited about!
- Jess Orso
When asked about the role, he confirmed that he has been in talks.
"If that happens, if everything works out, then I will be pretty pumped. It's like seven months out of your year. Which is not a bad problem."
However, there may be a scheduling conflict with the Divergent sequel Insurgent, which begins production in April, just a few weeks after Divergent opens on March 21, 2014. When asked about what he will be shooting next, the actor had this to say.
"Right now I'm kind of hanging out. I don't have anything that I'm doing until probably January or February. I don't know 100%. Obviously Insurgent, the next Divergent film...I think they are going to start the second one in April."
