It was recently announced that after 27 years, Tim Burton would be returning to direct "Beetlejuice 2." Michael Keaton has confirmed his involvement, but what about the film's heroine, Lydia Deetz? Well, it looks like Winona Ryder may be returning as well!

In an interview with the Daily Beast, Ryder stated that "I'm kind of sworn to secrecy, but it sounds like it might be happening."

After the news of the sequel hit, a lot of fans took to the internet to voice their displeasure. "It's a very precious movie to people, so there are a lot of people like, DON'T." Ryder said, regarding the backlash.

After hearing that Seth Grahame-Smith ("Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter," "Dark Shadows") had written a script based decades after the original had taken place, Ryder said that her interest was piqued.

She revealed, "It's not a sequel, it's 27 years later. And I have to say, I love Lydia so much. She was such a huge part of me. I would be really interested in what she is doing 27 years later."

Ryder also revealed that had Burton and Keaton not been attached to the sequel, she wouldn't have passed on the project as well, stating "I would never go near a sequel if it was not Tim and Michael. Because those guys, I love."

The 1988 film grossed over $73 million dollars, won an Academy Award for best makeup and skyrocketed Burton, Keaton and Ryder to the top of Hollywood's A-List.
