Tim Burton Confirms Cast of ‘Beetlejuice 2’; Sequel Stars Winona Ryder and Michael Keaton
It’s official. “Beetlejuice 2” is happening, folks! What’s even more exciting is that the sequel to the cult classic would bring back together the fantastic team of Tim Burton, Michael Keaton and Winona Ryder.
The much-awaited sequel is happening almost 26 years later since Ryder first starred in the 1988 classic. In a recent interview with MTV, Burton confirmed that he would be directing the sequel and that Ryder would also be joining him. The script of “Beetlejuice 2” might still be in progress, but Burton is quite happy with how things are working out.
He was also ecstatic to be working with Ryder. During the interview, he shared that he last worked with the actress on the video for The Killers’ song, "Here With Me," back in 2012. He realized just how much he wanted to collaborate with her once more.
"I worked with [Winona 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, and her and that character, I just miss it, there’s some freedom about that character that I love," shared Burton on MTV.
“Beetlejuice” is Tim Burton’s breakthrough film in the ‘80s. Ryder had worked with the director several times, the most recent was on “Frankenweenie,” and prior to that was on “Edward Scissorhands.” Meanwhile, Burton and Keaton had collaborated on both “Batman” and “Batman Returns.”
