"I think I can confirm it," Winona Ryder said about a sequel to Beetlejuice on Late Night with Seth Myers Aug. 10.

While rumors have swirled around the 27-year-old film getting a sequel for a while, it wasn't until Ryder apprehensively said those words that we've known it to be true.

She thought she could confirm it because, according to her, director of the first film Tim Burton had done so in an interview. However, a quick search only found Burton making the safe statement that the film is "closer than ever" last December.

There's no word yet if star Michael Keaton will reprise his classic role as the 'Ghost with the Most'. However, if a sequel comes together with him involved it will mark an extension of this interesting turn for him. Just last year, his dark and dreamy vehicle Birdman captured the Best Picture Academy Award and many thought Keaton deserved the Best Actor Award for which he was nominated.

If it does happen, it might even mean Burton can spring out of this 15-year slump he's spent holding hands with Johnny Depp, pulling each other down into the pits of mediocrity.



Here's the whole of the Seth Myers interview for you:

Animator Martin Woutisseth celebrates the cinematic oeuvre of Tim Burton with a stylish, animated walk through the director's impressive filmography, from Pee-Wee's Big Adventure to Alice in Wonderland. (Dark Shadows was cut for time, as the video was created for a five-minute animation contest.)

The project took three months, and Woutisseth said the biggest challenge was "to stay sober during the animation."

First official trailer for the Tim Burton-directed, Seth Grahame-Smith-penned big-screen adaption of cult TV show Dark Shadows.

Synopsis:

In 1752, the Collins family sails from Liverpool, England to North America. The son, Barnabas (Johnny Depp), grows up to be a wealthy playboy in Collinsport, Maine and is the master of Collinwood Manor. He breaks the heart of a witch, Angelique Bouchard (Eva Green), who turns him into a vampire and buries him alive. In 1972, Barnabas is accidentally freed from his coffin and returns to find his once-magnificent manor in ruin. It is occupied by dysfunctional Collins descendants and other residents, all of whom have secrets.

The film, which also stars Helena Bonham Carter, Michelle Pfeiffer, Johnny Lee Miller, Chloë Moretz, Gulliver McGrath, and Jackie Earle Haley, is set to open wide May 11th.
