Beetlejuice 2 Filming in 2015? Winona Ryder Confirmed to Return!


This latest tidbit should have fans of the ghost with the most ectoplasing in their pants! In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, writer Seth Grahame-Smith shared a few new tidbits on Beetlejuice 2, stating that director Tim Burton could make the sequel his next film when work is completed on Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.

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.

It also sounds like Winona Ryder will be back to tally his bananas.

[Burton] was doing press for Big Eyes right before the holiday and was getting the Beetlejuice question and sort of tipped people off that Winona [Ryder] would be back. Which, yes, she will be back.”

And finally…

“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 shit my pants in front of the entire world making a sequel to one of my favorite movies.”
