Winona Ryder On BEETLEJUICE 2:”I’m kind of sworn to secrecy.But it sounds like it might be happening.”

1397_winona-ryder-scanner-premiere-07-675x900It looks like if Beetlejuice 2 actually comes to fruition, it won’t just be Tim Burton and Michael Keaton coming back to to property. It looks like Lydia Deetz might also be making a return appearance as well.

Winona Ryder spoke with The Daily Beast on Monday, surely promoting her latest film, Homefront, and pretty much confirmed what Michael Keaton said earlier this month that the sequel is in the works–and that she will have a part in it. “I’m kind of sworn to secrecy.But it sounds like it might be happening,” said Ryder.

The role of Lydia in the first Beetlejuice was the role that launched Ryder into the national consciousness and lead her to a career of Oscar nominations, Golden Globe wins, and tabloid stories about her high-profile boyfriends and brushes with the law.

Ryder even let a bit of Seth Grahame-Smith’s plot be known:

“It’s not a remake,” Ryder revealed. “It’s 27 years later. And I have to say, I love Lydia [Deetz, Ryder’s teenage goth character] so much. She was such a huge part of me. I would be really interested in what she is doing 27 years later.”

The actress states while she’s interested in the role, her involvement is tied to Burton and Keaton’s involvement. “I would never go near [a sequel] if it was not Tim and Michael. Because those guys, I love.”

With Keaton and Ryder on board, you have the two characters he would most need to tie the two films together. Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis played a ghostly couple who took a shine to Ryder’s Lydia, but if they come back you’d have to explain why they aged 27 year when their characters have been dead all the time.

The necklace she’s wearing is beautiful. I wonder how much she didn’t pay for it. Seriously… She is still amazingly beautiful !
