Tim Burton Confirms Winona Ryder Will Be Back For ‘Beetlejuice 2′
According to creator and director Tim Burton, Beetlejuice 2 is still happening (in fact it’s “closer than ever”) and actress Winona Ryder is definitely involved!
Ryder herself previously teased that she may return to the role she originated as the eternally gloomy Lydia Deetz, but was forced to remain mum on saying more than maybe.
Thankfully Burton was not shy with confirming the deetz. Yeah, we went there.
Revealed Burton while on a tour to promote his Christmas Day film Big Eyes, “I worked with [Ryder], I hadn’t seen her in awhile… and she was so great. I was so happy to see her.”
“So those kinds of elements mean something to me. Michael [Keaton], and [Winona]… and that character, I just miss it, there’s some freedom about that character that I love.”
Burton also revealed that a script for the sequel is currently in the works and Michael Keaton is more than down.
