‘BEETLEJUICE 2’ is NOT in production! Well, not now anyway. Tim Burton’s rep caught wind of the news that it was, and he quickly made it clear Burton is not making the film at this time.
“Tim Burton did not confirm BEETLEJUICE 2, as the movie is not in development. Tim’s focus is entirely on MISS PEREGRINE’S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN (set for a September 30, 2016 release) and the development of DUMBO.”
So that’s that, no ‘BEETLEJUICE 2’ at this time. But that doesn’t mean ‘BEETLEJUICE 2’ is completely off the table. Winona Ryder confirmed the making of the film in an TV interview with Late Night personality Seth Myers.
Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuuu..shhh. Don’t say it three times!
