Winona Ryder has stated that she’s “sworn to secrecy” about Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice 2, written by Seth Grahame-Smith, but has revealed that it “might be happening.”
Speaking to The Daily Beast, Ryder discussed the potential sequel to the 1988 classic Beetlejuice, acknowledging that a lot of fans are worried about a sequel damaging its legacy.
“It’s a very precious movie to people. So there are a lot people like, ‘DON’T.'”
“I’m kind of sworn to secrecy,” she said. “But it sounds like it might be happening. It’s not a remake. It’s 27 years later. And I have to say, I love Lydia [Deetz] so much. She was such a huge part of me. I would be really interested in what she is doing 27 years later. That’s one of those movies where little kids stop me. I’m so associated with it. I think it gave me my career. I was such a weird looking kid.””
Ryder also stated that she would have no interest in starring in Beetlejuice 2 unless it is made by Tim Burton and stars Michael Keaton.
“”I would never go near [a sequel] if it was not Tim and Michael. Because those guys, I love.”
