Beetlejuice 2 was in development hell for decades! Finally it's in production!

Beetlejuice 2 is for real this time! Not just gossip or fans dreaming on a star on a sequel which never was... Well folks yes it's in development now! No longer in Development hell for which it was for decades. Production on Director Tim Burton‘s long-awaited sequel to his 1988 classic Beetlejuice just had some spy pics snapped on the Beetlejuice 2 set and it's given us our first look at Winona Ryder, reprising the role of the “strange and unusual” Lydia Deetz!

No joke other than STAR WARS this is the movie I've seen the most in my life... Saw it a total of 18 times in theaters alone! My dad LOVES this movie and he went with me as a kid every single time. During it's run he would buy tickets to see it and pick me up from school and we would go see it or when it was in Dollar theaters and we was bored he would wanna see it. So for like a year or so this movie was something he never got tired off. He owns it on DVD also so he's all super happy about this.

Can't wait to see the sequel with him after all this time of waiting for one. It's good Michael Keaton is making all these movies while he still can. Maybe he can make me super happy and make more BATMAN movies and throw in a "Multiplicity 2" in there. LOL I love the first one. Michael Keaton is one of my all time favorite actors so I cannot wait for this movie and whatever else he's got coming out.

In 1990, Jonathan Gems was hired to write a sequel that was going to be titled Beetlejuice Goes Hawaiian. Burton considered having Daniel Waters rewrite that script, Pamela Norris did rewrite it, and Warner Bros. offered Kevin Smith the chance to do another rewrite. He turned it down. Seth Grahame-Smith was hired to write and produce a new version of a sequel in 2011. Mike Vukadinovich was brought on to rewrite his script in 2017.

Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, co-creators and co-showrunners and creator of the 10 season long hit show SMALLVILLE on the CW, have written the screenplay for Beetlejuice 2 and rumor about the plot? Well those details are being kept under wraps. Brad Pitt’s Plan B is producing the sequel, which is filming in London. In addition to Ryder returning to the role of Lydia, Beetlejuice 2 also stars Catherine O’Hara, back as Lydia’s stepmother Delia; Jenna Ortega as Lydia’s daughter, Monica Bellucci as Beetlejuice’s wife, Willem Dafoe as a law enforcement officer in the afterlife, and Justin Theroux in an unspecified role. And yes, of course, Michael Keaton is reprising the role of the titular ghoul.

Also rumor has it that Jean-Claude Van Damme might show up in the movie as a ghost, but that has not yet been confirmed.

Written by Michael McDowell and Warren Skaaren from a story McDowell crafted with Larry Wilson, the original Beetlejuice has the following synopsis: What’s a yuppie ghost couple to do when their quaint New England home is overrun by trendy New Yorkers? They hire a freelance ‘bio-exorcist’ to spook the intruders. And everyone gets more than he, she or it bargained for! Director Tim Burton teams with Michael Keaton. The result? ‘Keaton’s Beetlejuice is one of the biggest, baddest wolves a ghost movie has ever unleashed, a polter-gas’ (The Village Voice). He’s a juggernaut of jokes, jolts and jive who hurls one-liners, spins into grotesque forms, gobbles insects and can’t leave ladies (living or dead) alone. So exorcise your right to fun. Say the ‘B’ word three times and have a wonderful Day-O!

Beetlejuice 2 is heading toward a September 6, 2024 theatrical release.
