If Hump Day’s got ya down, here’s something that’ll cheer you right up again: Tim Burton has confirmed that there will indeed be a Beetlejuice sequel coming our way soon, AND that our beloved Winona Ryder will be in it!
From MTV News:
“Oh yeah,” Burton said, when MTV News asked if he’d be directing the sequel. And his response to the question of whether or not Winona Ryder would be returning?
“Oh yeah, yeah yeah yeah,” he said. “Oh yeah, oh yeah. Yeah yeah, oh yeah.”
Hear that? That’s the sound of nine “yeahs.” So if “yeahs” were Beetlejuices, we’d have three at this point. We’re still waiting on the one, but Burton did say that working with Ryder on a recent video for The Killers helped influence his decision to return to the ghostly franchise.
“I worked with [Ryder], I hadn’t seen her in awhile… and she was so great,” Burton said. “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.”
Awesome! I wasn’t a Beetlejuice fan and I don’t really like Tim Burton, but I can see the draw on this one. Let’s hope it holds up as a decent sequel.
Will you go and see Beetlejuice 2?
