‘Stranger Things’: 19 Totally ‘80s Pop Culture References That Should Be in Season 2

5 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Stranger Things 2” returns just in time for Halloween, both in the real world and in the eerie town of Hawkins, Indiana conceived in the nostalgic minds of The Duffer Brothers. The action picks up three days before Halloween 1984, which means that the year will soon be coming to a close. For those who may not have been alive or perhaps have a shaky memory of the time, 1984 was a big year for memorable events and in pop culture.

The first season reveled in bringing the time period alive in all of its totally ‘80s glory, from Dungeons & Dragons gaming sessions and Eggo waffles to homages to “E.T.,” “The Shining,” and “Rambo.” Hell, even star Winona Ryder’s presence is a timely tribute since she made her early career in such iconic ‘80s films as “Lucas,” “Beetlejuice,” and “Heathers.”

If you're prepping for the return of Stranger Things by rewatching classic '80s scary stories (and the cult classics of Winona Ryder), you can't forget Tim Burton's 1988 masterpiece: Beetlejuice.

But what happened to the actors who played the main characters and all the rest after the movie hit theaters? Here's a peek into what the cast of Beetlejuice has been up to. »

They’re non-corporeal cut-ups, rich ghosts on the town with nothing better to do than spice up the love life of Roland Young’s harried, henpecked bank president. Hal Roach’s screwball hit did good things for everybody concerned, especially star Cary Grant and bit player Arthur Lake. But the show’s nostalgic heart is Billie Burke, of the tinkly-glass voice. Also starring platinum blonde Constance Bennett, Alan Mowbray and Eugene Pallette.

Beetlejuice 2 Has Hired a New Writer

13 October 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

It’s been almost thirty years since Beetlejuice was released in cinemas and a sequel is still in the works until today. Warner Bros. has hired a new writer who will work on the rewrite of the script. Hopefully, that will finally be the right one that will lead for the sequel to officially happen. Deadline has reported that Mike Vukadinovich has been hired by Warner Bros. to rewrite the script of Beetlejuice 2. There’s no deal yet for Tim Burton and Michael Keaton to return on the sequel but they are both interested to be part of it. They are

Beetlejuice 2 gets a new writer

13 October 2017 1:03 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The long-in-development Beetlejuice 2, the sequel to Tim Burton and Michael Keaton’s cult hit, has gained a screenwriter over at Warner Bros. Per Deadline, the studio has hired Mike Vukadinovich (Rememory) to pen the script with Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg producing.

Burton and Keaton have not signed any deals for the sequel yet, but Deadline claims that the pair are excited at the prospect of re-teaming for the film. They are currently shooting the live action Dumbo for Disney together, with Keaton starring as V.A. Vandemere, the ruthless circus ringleader who want to exploit Dumbo.

The original film was released in 1988 and starred Keaton, Alec Baldwin, Genna Davis, Winona Ryder, Catherine O’Hara and Jeffery Jones. Baldwin and Davis were ghosts who hire Betelguise (pronounced Beetljuice) to scare away the occupants of their old home until Beetlejuice’s antics get out of hand. The film spawned an »

'Beetlejuice 2' Moves Ahead With New Writer

12 October 2017 9:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

The one and only sequel ever directed by Tim Burton is Batman Returns. That's also the last movie he made with actor Michael Keaton before their upcoming reunion on Disney's live-action Dumbo remake (currently filming with fellow Batman Returns star Danny DeVito). Batman Returns is also the one and only sequel Keaton has done to one of his own movies (he was a new addition with both Herbie: Fully Loaded and Toy Story 3). Could the director and actor change all that with Beetlejuice 2? A sequel to Burton's 1988 paranormal comedy has been in development a while, but Burton hasn't committed to the idea yet. Nor has Keaton, who played the titular "ghost with the most" in the original Beetlejuice. According to Deadline, Warner Bros. is now apparently trying...

Beetlejuice 2 still alive, hires new writer

12 October 2017 6:07 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mike Cecchini Oct 13, 2017

There's still a Beetlejuice sequel in the offing - and it even has a new writer...

They just won't let Beetlejuice die. Warner Bros. has been trying to get Beetlejuice 2 off the ground almost since the original hit theaters, with the project going through any number of different iterations over the last nearly 30 years. Despite the fact that sequels this belated don't make the most sense under the very best of circumstances, let alone when one features characters who are dead and therefore shouldn't be aging anymore, there are still plans to get Beetlejuice 2 made with both Michael Keaton and Tim Burton.

Halloween 2017: Girls Just Want to Have Blood: 16 Horror Projects Directed by Women to Stream on Shudder

12 October 2017 5:53 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

February is known as Women in Horror Month, when the spotlight is put on female filmmakers working inside our favorite genre, and many horror sites run pieces about movies directed by women. And that’s great! But there’s no reason why that spotlight should be limited to only one month, particularly when there are so many brilliant and talented female filmmakers working in the genre. Why not use this October to hit up these titles on Shudder and get to know some of the most exciting female voices in horror right now?

Prevenge (2016, dir. Alice Lowe) Alice Lowe writes, directs, and stars in this darkly comic, twisted fantasy about a woman who is very, very pregnant (Lowe herself was pregnant during shooting) and goes on a killing spree when her unborn baby talks to her and tells her to take revenge for a past tragedy. The film never fully transcends its gimmick, »

Beetlejuice 2 Finally Moves Forward with New Writer

12 October 2017 2:37 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There's some new life for Beetlejuice 2. The project has been in development, in some form or another, for years and has never found its way to becoming a reality. Now, Warner Bros. is giving it another try, as they've hired screenwriter Mike Vukadinovich to pen a new version of the script for Beetlejuice 2. Depending on how that goes, we may see Tim Burton and Michael Keaton return for the sequel, but it sounds like we're a long way from that actually happening. But the movie is in active development.

The news comes courtesy of Deadline, who report that, while Warner Bros. is working on a new script for Beetlejuice 2, that doesn't mean the movie is actually going to happen. The report notes that Tim Burton, who directed the original movie, and Michael Keaton, who brought the titular character of Beetlejuice to life, have not yet officially inked a deal to return. »

‘Beetlejuice 2’ Gets New Life with New Writer

12 October 2017 12:50 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

It appears that Beetlejuice 2 isn’t dead just yet. There’s been talk of doing a sequel for years, going back to Beetlejuice Goes Hawaiian which was put into development directly after the success of the 1988 Tim Burton original. But that talk heated up quite seriously a few years ago when Seth Grahame-Smith was working with Burton on Dark Shadows and pitched the filmmaker on writing a script for Beetlejuice 2. Grahame-Smith got the go-ahead, then Burton, Michael Keaton, and Winona Ryder entered talks to return. But the whole thing kind of went quiet after … »

Beetlejuice 2 Gets A New Lease Of Life As Warner Drafts In Screenwriter Mike Vukadinovich

12 October 2017 12:07 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Mike Vukadinovich has been tasked with resurrecting Beetlejuice 2 from the brink of irrelevancy.

Deadline has the scoop, confirming that Vukadinovich has been drafted in to pen a new treatment for the long-in-development sequel. Neither Tim Burton nor Michael Keaton have signed on just yet, though Deadline is reporting that both director and star are interested in revisiting the genre oddity of ’88, possibly courting Winona Ryder back to the Netherworld in the process.

It’s worth pointing out that Burton and Keaton are currently working together on the live-action Dumbo that is poised to take flight at Disney, thereby joining a long list of reimagined fairytales that includes everything from Mulan to Jon Favreau’s star-studded rendition of The Lion King. For Beetlejuice 2, though, the project currently has Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg of KatzSmith Productions on board to produce, but beyond that, there’s not much to report at this early, »

‘Beetlejuice’ Sequel Still in Development at Warner Bros.

12 October 2017 11:05 AM, PDT | bloody-disgusting.com | See recent Bloody-Disgusting.com news »

Michael Keaton‘s performance as Beetlejuice was so iconic that it’s a shame we’ve never seen the “ghost with the most” back on the big screen. It’s nice that Tim Burton moved on to different things, but it’s the one franchise that has always begged for a follow-up, especially when you consider the rich, untapped mythology […] »

5 October 2017 6:35 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The Winonaissance is here! Winona Ryder opened up to Marie Claire UK about her recent return to acting after being one of the biggest stars of the ‘80s and ‘90s.

“It’s so overwhelming,” she told the magazine of the fan response to her Netflix hit, Stranger Things. “I don’t know what it’s like for really famous people… I keep hearing that people are dressing up like me [as her character Joyce]. I’m like, ‘What?’”

Ryder said that not being a parent herself, she asked her mom for help with connecting with her character, Joyce, a single mom, frantic to find her missing son.

“I said, ‘Mom, if every bit of logic is telling you your kid is gone, would you still [refuse to believe it]?’ And she said, ‘Absolutely.’ I said, ‘What if they show you a body?’ She said, ‘If you don’t see it happen, you don’t believe it.’ It’s a weird »

Winona Ryder Says That Finding Fame Again Is ''Overwhelming''

4 October 2017 6:55 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

If you're an '80s kid or a '90s kid, Winona Ryder was pretty much the epitome of indie cool. And then, much like her TV son Will Byers, she disappeared. For those who need a refresher: Back in the day, the doe-eyed darling lit up the screen with her broody, but approachable ways in a slew of iconic films, like HeathersBeetlejuice and Reality Bites. But then the 2000s hit and so did controversy. The actress caused a pop-culture moment (complete with the catchy "Free Winona" slogan) when she was arrested for shoplifting in 2001.  Soon after, the former teen star stepped away from the limelight and Hollywood, still appearing in films but none that gained much notoriety, save »
