The Daily Beast
Everyone loves a good Beetlejuice 2 story, right? Today it was Winona Ryder’s turn to hop aboard the sequel’s ongoing hype train to tease the movie without saying much of anything at all.
While talking with The Daily Beast, Ryder had this to say:
“I’m kind of sworn to secrecy. But it sounds like it might be happening.”
Of course there’s more. The obligatory “we won’t be doing this unless it’s done right” spiel that’s commonplace when assuring fans that this sequel won’t be like all those terrible ones. But hey, at least she’s aware of the trepidation.
“It’s a very precious movie to people,” she explained. “So there are a lot people like, ‘DON’T.'”
While we have no real idea what the movie might actually be about, Ryder says a little more than what we’ve gotten so far from anywhere else. And it’s still not much…
“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.”
Ryder was only 17 when Beetlejuice was shot, and she expresses an enduring fondness for the movie and her character that has stayed with her all this time. “That’s one of those movies where little kids stop me,” she said. “I’m so associated with it. I think it gave me my career. I was such a weird looking kid.”
Don’t worry, I’m sure we’ll have more on Beetlejuice 2 next week.
