Johnny Depp and Tim Burton have collaborated so many times together that every time the director makes a film the actor is expected to participate in it. They have already worked up to eight times in different films such as ‘Ed Wood’, ‘Sleepy Hollow’, ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’, among others, so it would not be strange to see the Hollywood star in the second installment of ‘Beetlejuice’.
According to Depp’s own followers, the beleaguered actor’s name seemed to be located on a call sheet found when they said they were Googling the next ‘Beetlejuice 2’, which is scheduled to premiere in 2025.
While Depp would not replace Michael Keaton, who along with Winona Ryder will reprise his role from the 1988 original, he would play one of the recently deceased humans that this peculiar being has to help.
Rumors affirming Depp’s involvement in this new installment began circulating before the jury in the actor’s defamation case against his ex-wife, Amber Heard, was fired to deliberate on the dispute.
The 1988 film revolved around a dead couple — played by Alec Baldwin, 64, and Geena Davis, 66 — resurrected as ghosts bent on kicking an irritating family out of their dream home.
