Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
Back in December we brought you a couple of BEETLEJUICE 2 updates where Tim Burton and Michael Keaton were speaking highly of the idea of doing another movie together. Burton even went on to say that a sequel is "closer than ever".
Winona Ryder, who portrayed Lydia Deetz from the BEETLEJUICE film appeared on Late Night With Seth Meyers. While there she was asked about the BEETLEJUICE sequel. She revealed that the project is moving forward and that she will indeed be involved saying:
"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]."
Although the film is not officially confirmed, hearing Ryder say that she think that she can confirm, certainly confirms that the project is still moving forward.
Back in January Seth Grahame-Smith, who is in charge of penning the script for the possible BEETLEJUICE sequel said in an interview with EW:
“I’ve emailed with Michael Keaton. I know he’s excited about the idea. I know Tim is excited about the idea. Where it stands now is Tim’s got to get ready to make [Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children], and then hopefully we are set, deals are done, and we’re waiting in the wings ready to go right after Peregrine’s wraps up. The ideal timeline is we’re really getting into it toward the end of this year.”
“I think we landed on the right idea, landed on the right approach. It’s just now making sure that—for me—I don’t want to sh*t my pants in front of the entire world making a sequel to one of my favorite movies.”
We will continue to bring you more on BEETLEJUICE 2 as it unfolds.
