WINONA RYDER could soon be reprising her role as Lydia Deetz in cult Tim Burton film Beetlejuice. Although the actress has been “sworn to secrecy”, she said that it “sounds as if it might be happening”.
Burton is behind the sequel, and Michael Keaton will once again play the creepy title role. It was their involvement that made Ryder want to do it again “because those guys I love”.
“It’s not a remake,” Ryder told The Daily Beast. “It’s 27 years later. And 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.”
Beetlejuice has served as inspiration for some of fashion’s favourite Halloween costumes – bothHenry Holland and Agyness Deyn have looked to the film for fancy dress stimulus. The Hollywood hit also inspired emerging British label Deetz, which was named after its young heroine.
