Beetlejuice 2 is an upcoming horror comedy film directed by Tim Burton from the screenplay by Mike Vukadinovich.
It also serves as the direct sequel to the 1988 Halloween favorite movie Beetlejuice that is still popular among fantasy comedy movie fans.
Fans still prefer to watch the film today due to its engaging story and Burton’s insane plot execution of afterlife that everyone loves.
The movie is produced by Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg under KatzSmith Productions, Plan B Entertainment, Warner Bros, and Tim Burton Productions.
Is Beetlejuice 2 confirmed?
Yes, Beetlejuice 2 has been officially confirmed by Brad Pitt’s backed production company Plan B Entertainment. It was announced that the project has long been in the works at Warner Bros.
The leading actress Winona Ryder also shared in 2015 that a sequel will surely happen and she will be a part of it.
Even though, Keaton suggested in a 2016 interview with Variety that the time for a sequel may have passed, the sequel is still under production in 2022 like Descendants 4 movie on Disney.
Possibly, Tim Burton doesn’t want to ruin the film story with a sequel. That’s why scripts writing work is taking a lot of time.
The dialogues have to be weird and humorous that makes the viewer crazy otherwise the era of cult classic might come on the horizon.
First Beetlejuice was Burton’s most successful and least criticized film ever and that’s why the director is so cautious regarding its development.
When is Beetlejuice sequel coming out?
Deadline reported in February 2022 that a sequel has been boarded to Plan B Entertainment with scripts yet to be written. Since that time, no director, studio, or producer has posted any update regarding the sequel’s progress.
Well, can’t say anything right now but we hope to hear some good news from the original creators of the movie till this Halloween.
Beetlejuice 2 might stuck in the production hell but that doesn’t mean it will not return. Even IMDb shows that the Beetlejuice sequel film is under development but without any progress.
If the scripts have been written already and the filming begin in Sep 2022 then the second part of Beetlejuice is expected to be release around late 2023 under Warner Bros distribution.
Who will Cast in Beetlejuice Part 2?
No actors have announced for the upcoming film but Michael Keaton, Geena Davis, and Winona Ryder are rumored to star with no scriptwriters assigned.
The another big rumor is that Johnny Depp will be seen in the movie leaving Pirates of the Caribbean 6 and Disney. If the rumor comes out to be true then it will be amazing because fans are excited to see Johnny Depp’s new role in the movie.
Only God knows exactly, what producers are up to and everything is a rumor until the official release cast details comes out.
Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis chemistry was well liked by the audience along with the supporting role of Jeffrey Jones and Catherine O’Hara. So, they are also expected to reprise their roles.
Since the first movie was having pretty strong characters played by the best actors, we expect to see most of all the cast members to return for their respective roles in the new movie.
