“I think I can confirm it because Tim Burton did this interview — like it was very hush-hush top secret — and then he was doing press for ‘Big Eyes’ and he did an on-camera interview and he said, ‘Oh yeah, we’re doing it and Winona’s gonna be in it,’” Ryder said.

The film has had a lasting impact with fans according to Ryder, who said the she is constantly reminded of the film in her day-to-day life. “At airports, going through security, I have not been let through security unless I said ‘Beetlejuice’ three times,” she told Meyers during the interview.

Ryder was on the show to promote her latest project, a David Simon’s HBO miniseries called “Show Me a Hero.” While Ryder confirmed the sequel, she didn’t talk about other castings or plot details. While Tim Burton is expected to direct the film and Michael Keaton is expected to return, no other details on the project have been confirmed at this time.
