Winona Ryder Talks About BEETLEJUICE 2

In a recent interview with The Daily Beast, actress Winona Ryder spoke a little bit about the upcoming sequel to the 1988 hit Beetlejuice.  She said,

"I'm kind of sworn to secrecy… But it sounds like it might be happening."

I know that doesn’t say a lot, however, you can glean at least one thing from it. If she wasn’t involved, why would she be sworn to secrecy? Of course, that could just be me wanting to read into things.

She was asked what the reaction from fans was in regards to a sequel being made:

"It's a very precious movie to people. So there are a lot people like, 'DON'T”

She does go on to clear up a little confusion that is surrounding the movie:

“It's not a remake. It's 27 years later. And I have to say, I love Lydia [Deetz, Ryder's teenage goth character] so much. She was such a huge part of me. I would be really interested in what she is doing 27 years later."

Ryder also goes on to say that she wouldn’t go near the project if Tim Burton and Michael Keaton weren’t involved. Fortunately for us, it looks as if they are going to be in the movie. 

I know there are many of you out there that are not very excited for this to happen, and usually I would not only be on that bandwagon, I would be driving it. However, Beetlejuice is one of my all-time favorite movies, and I have always felt that it needed a sequel.  If it does actually happen, I will be first in line to see it.

Until next time…

Billy Out!
