Little information is available about Tim Burton's 1988 film about a disturbing poltergeist, but filmmaker is returning as Beetlejuice and Winona as Lydia Deetz. Additional cast members include “Wednesday” star Jenna Ortega as Ryder's character's daughter, as well as Justin Theroux in a yet-to-be-revealed role. Production is expected to begin in London on 10 May.

Brad Pitt's Plan B Is Producing “Beetlejuice 2”. Mike Vukadinovich, writer the Showtime comedy “Kidding,” wrote the script.

In the first film, a recently deceased married couple (played by and Alec Baldwin) are improbably reunited with new families (Catherine O'Hara and Jeffrey Jones play the parents and Ryder plays their teenage daughter). They get annoyed with anyone who moved into their house. So they are approached by Beetlejuice, a devious goblin from the Netherworld, who promises to help them harass the new residents of the house.

A critical and commercial hit, “Beetlejuice” grossed $74.7 million and inspired a Tony-nominated stage musical. The show closed on Broadway in January, after a four-year run that was interrupted by the pandemic.
