Speaking to the Daily Beast, Ryder suggested that she will be back for the follow-up by saying she's "sworn to secrecy" on the project.

"It sounds like it might be happening," she commented, adding that she is aware of the difficulty of making a sequel to a beloved film.

"It's a very precious movie to people. So there are a lot people like, 'DON'T'... It's not a remake. It's 27 years later.

"I have to say, I love Lydia so much. She was such a huge part of me. I would be really interested in what she is doing 27 years later."



Ryder also insisted that she would "never go near [a sequel] if it was not Tim and Michael. Because those guys, I love".

Seth Grahame-Smith is currently working on the script for Beetlejuice 2, which he will produce alongside The Geffen Company and David Katzenberg.
