The Wednesday star reportedly has an offer to play the daughter of Winona Ryder's Lydia Deetz in Beetlejuice 2The Ankler insider Jeff Sneider reports. According to Sneider, the long-in-the-works follow-up to director Tim Burton's 1988 Beetlejuice is "finally a go" with Burton reuniting with original cast members Michael Keaton as "bio-exorcist" Betelgeuse, Ryder as goth girl Lydia, and Catherine O'Hara as Lydia's step-mother, Delia Deetz.

Ortega rose to fame as the lead of the Disney Channel series Stuck in the Middle before joining Netflix's stalker-thriller You. Most famously, she starred as Wednesday Addams in the Burton-directed and produced Wednesday for Netflix and as Tara Carpenter in 2022's Scream, a role she reprises in Scream VI.

Asked about a Beetlejuice 2 in an October interview, Burton told Deadline that "nothing is out of the question."

"I only know if I'm making a film when I'm actually on the set shooting," Burton teased of the sequel to his 1988 cult classic that also starred Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis. "I try to go back to the root of everything. It springs from a seed and then it grows, rather than out of these statements. I am working on ideas and things but it's all very early days. We'll set how it goes. How's that for a none answer?"
