Jenna Ortega is eyeing a role in Tim Burton’s “Beetlejuice 2,” Variety has confirmed.
Ortega, best known for her role as Wednesday Addams in Netflix’s recent series reboot “Wednesday,” is in talks to play the daughter of Lydia Deetz, portrayed by Winona Ryder in the original film. This marks her second time working with Burton, who was an executive producer on “Wednesday” and directed four of its eight episodes. Michael Keaton is also set to reprise his role as the title character.
Representatives for Warner Bros. and Ortega did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Met with critical acclaim, “Beetlejuice” grossed $74 million in North America on a $15 million budget.
