The film’s producer, Warner Bros., was unavailable for comment. Requests for comment from an Ortega spokesman went unanswered. The announcement coincides with Ortega’s release of Scream VI, which may be the best debut in the franchise’s more than 25-year history.
Sources state that Michael Keaton will return and that Tim Burton, who directed the 1988 movie with the same name, will be the director. The production is aiming for a shoot in London in late May or early June, but there is no clear budget, which causes back and forth.
If a contract is reached, Ortega, according to insiders, would play Lydia’s daughter, who in the original was portrayed by Winona Ryder. The original movie, which cost $15 million and made $80 million in box office revenue, also starred Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, Jeffrey Jordan, and Catherine O’Hara. It won the 1989 Academy Award for best makeup.

Throughout the years, the sequel has seen numerous versions, with numerous authors coming and going and Burton himself publicly vacillating about his own involvement. Ortega, who most recently appeared in Burton’s directed Netflix film Wednesday, claimed she used to have “constant dreams” about Beetlejuice as a child.
The actor’s career started with appearances in You and Yes Day before landing roles on The CW’s Jane the Virgin as Young Jane. She starred in the Scream remake from last year and also made an appearance in the blockbuster X.
“It’s been quite an insane experience,” Ortega told The Hollywood Reporter of working with Burton before Wednesday’s premiere. I’ve had the good fortune to have the opportunity to work with a famous filmmaker who also happens to be one of the kindest and most meticulous directors I’ve ever met.
For Ortega, who is presenting Saturday Night Live in addition to Scream VI, this weekend is jam-packed with activities. Gilbertson Entertainment, CAA, and Jackoway Austen are Ortega’s agents.
