Beetlejuice 2 wants Jenna Ortega. The star of Wednesday Addams on Netflix is the most precious asset that the sequel to this classic craves.
Jenna Ortega has become the center of Beetlejuice 2. The long-awaited sequel is trying to convince the star of Wednesday Addams on Netflix to play a major role in the film. The sequel to Tim Burton’s 1988 classic has gone through several twists and turns over the years. And the most recent iteration led to development reports in early 2022. Original stars Michael Keaton and Winona Ryder were expected to reprise their roles as the lead and Lydia, respectively. However, production barely advanced over the past year.
As reported exclusively by The Hollywood Reporter, Jenna Ortega is preparing a major role in Beetlejuice 2. Although there is still nothing official, the end of May or the beginning of June is being considered as a production start date, depending on the budget. The young actress is said to play Ryder’s daughter. Keaton and Burton are also expected to return for the sequel.
This signing would be a great asset for the second installment
If Beetlejuice 2 does feature Jenna Ortega, it will be just the latest impressive title to join the young star’s filmography. The actress is currently riding an incredible wave of fame thanks to her leading roles in Netflix’s Wednesday (which Tim Burton also directed) and one of the ‘final girls’ of the Scream revival. He also returns in the newly released Scream 6. It seems that her collaboration with Burton on Wednesday has helped pave the way for her possible role in the horror sequel, although it is worth mentioning that she already seems very suitable for the role of Lydia’s daughter.
