Jenna Ortega, who stars in the show “Wednesday,” wants to stay in the Tim Burton family. Several sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that the actor is in the running for a part in Beetlejuice 2.
Warner Bros., which made the movie, could not comment. When asked for comment, Ortega’s representative did not answer.
The news comes out when Ortega’s new movie, Scream VI, hits theaters. Scream VI could have the best opening of the franchise’s 25-year history.
Tim Burton, who directed the 1988 movie with Michael Keaton, is expected to be in charge again. Keaton is also likely to be back. The production wants to shoot in London in late May or early June, but the budget hasn’t been set, so there has been some back and forth. Sources say that if a deal is made, Ortega will play Lydia’s daughter, Winona Ryder’s role in the first movie.
The original movie also had Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, Jeffrey Jordan, and Catherine O’Hara in it. It made $80 million on a $15 million budget and won an Oscar for best makeup at the 1989 Academy Awards. Over the years, the sequel has gone through many changes. Different writers have come and gone, and Burton himself has gone back and forth about whether or not he wants to be involved.
Ortega, who was most recently on Netflix’s Wednesday, which Burton also directed, had said that she used to “consistently dream” about Beetlejuice when she was younger. The actor started playing young Jane on the CW show Jane the Virgin. She then had parts in the movies You and Yes, Day. She was in the remake of Scream last year and in horror hit X.
Ortega told The Hollywood Reporter, before the movie came out on Wednesday, that working with Burton had been “quite a crazy experience.” I’ve been lucky enough to work with an iconic director who is one of the most excellent and detail-oriented directors I’ve ever worked with.
