Back in October 2012, actress Winona Ryder exclusively discussed the possibility of returning as Lydia Deetz in the highly-anticipated sequel Beetlejuice 2. Now that the follow-up is picking up steam, with director Tim Burton in talks to direct, Winona Ryder revealed that she may be closer to joining the project.
"I'm kind of sworn to secrecy...But it sounds like it might be happening."
She also confirmed that the story takes place 27 years after the original Beetlejuice.
"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."
"It's a very precious movie to people. So there are a lot people like, 'Don't!' That's one of those movies where little kids stop me. I'm so associated with it. I think it gave me my career. I was such a weird looking kid."
