The 40-year-old played goth adolescent Lydia Deetz in the original movie and she is set to meet the film's director Tim Burton to discuss the possibility of appearing in a follow up to the dark classic, reported MTV online.
When asked if she is to star in the sequel, Ryder said, "You tell me - I don't know! I've heard from journalists, that's how I found out, but I'm seeing Tim next week, and I will let you know." Seth Grahame-Smith is currently writing a script, commissioned by Burton, for a possible sequel.
Ryder said that if a follow up movie was created then Michael Keaton is needed to reprise his role as main character Betelgeuse, a grotesque and perverted bio-exorcist, who scares humans for other Ghosts.
"I'm trying to think about how that would work. Obviously I'm not the focal point; it's got to be Michael (Keaton). So is it happening? It's being written, but is it happening? Tim hasn't confirmed it yet," she added.
