Tim Burton Directing ‘Beetlejuice 2,’ Winona Ryder to Star


For Beetlejuice fans, there is hope. While Tim Burton and Michael Keaton are keeping themselves busy with ambitious films like Big Eyes and Birdman, the two have never really stopped thinking about a follow-up for their cult hit. Today, as MTV News digs up, we find there’s more set in stone than we realized.

Back in October, Keaton said he and Burton were waiting for a script, but their new video interview revealed Beetlejuice 2 is moving along just fine. When asked if Winona Ryder would return for the sequel, Burton gave an enthusiastic response. “Oh yeah, yeah yeah yeah,” he said. “Oh yeah, oh yeah. Yeah yeah, oh yeah… I worked with [Ryder on The Killers’ music video], 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.”

There’s nine “yeahs” in there, so you know he’s cooking up some other goodness, too. Watch more from the video interview here.
