Beetlejuice movie lovers, Winona Ryder herself has confirmed it on the Seth Meyers show—a sequel to Beetlejuice will be made.
On his show, Seth Meyers asks Winona: “There has been talk there is a sequel to Beetlejuice, can you confirm or deny this?”
Winona slightly hesitates, and then says: “Um… I think I can confirm it. “BECAUSE,” she exclaims, “Tim Burton did this interview, like, it was very hush, hush, top secret… and then when he was doing some press for Big Eyes, he did an on-camera interview and he said: ‘Oh yeah, we’re doing it, and Winona’s going to be in it.'”
And then Winona does the shocked face that we are all doing right now
For all you young ones who don’t know the movie Beetlejuice, it came out in 1988, and was a comedy/fantasy film.
It’s about a young couple who recently died (Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis), and they become ghosts who haunt their former home and an obnoxious, devious ghost named Betelgeuse (pronounced Beetlejuice and played by Michael Keaton) from the Netherworld who does his best to permanently scare away the new people living in the house (Catherine O’Hara, Jeffrey Jones, and Winona Ryder).
Beetlejuice himself, aka Michael Keaton, also said he would definitely be interested in doing a sequel to Beetlejuice, as long as Tim Burton was involved. He said to MTV News: “I’ve e-mailed Tim a couple of times, talked to the writer a couple of times, but all really, really preliminary stuff,” Keaton said. “I always said that’s the one thing I’d like to do again, if I ever did anything again. But it kind of required Tim to be involved some way or another.”
I am looking forward to a sequel; in the mean time, I might rent out the original.
