Hollywood actress Winona Ryder is in talks to star in the sequel of 1988 comedy horror movie 'Beetlejuice'.

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.
