One of the big pieces needed for me to get excited about Beetlejuice 2 has finally fallen into place. We already had Tim Burton and Michael Keaton on board, but until now we didn’t have confirmation that Lydia Deetz (Winona Ryder) had signed on.
Here’s what she just told Seth Meyers last night:
“I think I can confirm it because Tim Burton did this interview. It was very hush-hush, top secret, ‘I don’t know what may happen, I don’t know,’ and then he was doing some press for ‘Big Eyes’ and he did an on-camera interview and he said, ‘Oh yeah, we’re doing it and Winona’s gonna be in it.’ So can I say…? I mean if he said it. But I really don’t know much more than anybody else.”
