Willem Dafoe Joins Jenna Ortega, Michael Keaton for BeetleJuice2

According to The Hollywood Reporter Willem Dafoe is the latest bold-faced name to join the cast of Beetlejuice 2. The Warner Bros. feature began production this week with Tim Burton, who directed the original movie that was released in 1988, back in the director’s chair. Jenna Ortega is leading the cast with Michael Keaton reprising his role as the obnoxious ghost, while Winona Ryder is also back, playing Ortega’s mother. Catherine O’Hara is also among the returnees, while Justin Theroux and Monica Bellucci are among the newcomers.

Warners announced Tuesday that the feature will be released Sept. 6, 2024, taking over the date from Marvel’s Blade, which last week shut down preproduction due to the writers strike. Producing Beetlejuice 2 are Burton and Brad Pitt’s Plan B, among others. Al Gough and Miles Millar, the creators of the Ortega-starring Wednesday Netflix series, wrote the screenplay.
