Winona Riding Back to Star in Beetlejuice 2

Burton fans around the world rejoiced when it was announced that Beetlejuice 2 was given the greenlight. This news was made even sweeter when it was announced that Tim Burton would return to direct and Michael Keaton will be reprising his role as the main character.

Today news broke that Winona Ryder is also set to return to reprise her role of Lydia. When asked about the movie, Winona commented:

“It’s not a remake. It’s 27 years later and I have to say, I love Lydia so much. She was such a huge part of me. I would be really interested in what she is doing 27 years later.”

Time will tell if the sequel to the 1988 comedy will be any good but with the majority of the original cast confirmed to return, this is either going to be a simple cash grab or one hell of a movie. Either way, we here at Cinema Chords are rather excited about it.
