Production has wrapped on Micheal Keaton’s “Beetlejuice 2”.
This is not a shock considering Warner Bros.’-backed production movie only had two days left of shooting once the SAG-AFTRA strike ended. The studio is looking to hold firm to Sept. 6, 2024.
"Beetlejuice 2" reunites Michael Keaton, Winona Ryder, and Catherine O’Hara from the original cast of the 1988 movie.
Joining the mix this time around are Wednesday star Jenna Ortega, Willem Dafoe, Monica Bellucci, and Justin Theroux.
The movie set for Beetlejuice 2 in Vermont was burglarized back in mid-July. Vermont State Police shared a post on X with photos of the sculpture piece that was stolen from the set of the movie in East Corinth.
“We tried saying the name of this stolen statue three times, but it didn’t come back!” Vermont State Police joked in a post shared on July 21.
The X post continued, “We’re investigating the theft of this 150-pound sculpture from the Beetlejuice 2 set in E. Corinth, along with a lamppost topped with a pumpkin decoration.”
For Burton, “Beetlejuice 2” marks his first feature directorial effort since 2019’s “Dumbo.” He swore off working for Disney after the experience of making a tentpole there.
“The thing about ‘Dumbo,’ is that’s why I think my days with Disney are done,” he said last year at the Lumière Festival in Lyon. “I realized that I was Dumbo, that I was working in this horrible big circus and I needed to escape. That movie is quite autobiographical at a certain level.”
