Fans of the beloved 1988 film “Beetlejuice” were thrilled to learn that a sequel, “Beetlejuice 2,” is finally in the works. However, there was some initial concern when rumors circulated that Johnny Depp might be cast in the lead role. Fortunately, those fears were put to rest when it was announced that Justin Theroux had been chosen for the role.
Theroux is no stranger to the big screen, having appeared in numerous films over the years, including “American Psycho,” “Zoolander,” and “The Girl on the Train.” He is also known for his work on television, having written and produced the critically acclaimed series “The Leftovers.”
Theroux’s casting in “Beetlejuice 2” has been met with widespread approval from fans, who are excited to see what he brings to the role. Many have praised his range as an actor and his ability to convey both humor and depth in his performances.
The news has also been a relief for some fans who were concerned about the possibility of Johnny Depp being cast in the role. Depp has faced controversy in recent years over allegations of domestic abuse, and many fans were worried that his involvement in the film would detract from its overall quality and message.
While the original “Beetlejuice” was a comedy, it also dealt with themes of death, the afterlife, and the consequences of one’s actions. Fans are hoping that “Beetlejuice 2” will continue to explore these themes while also delivering the same humor and charm that made the original such a beloved classic.
Production on the film is expected to begin soon, and fans are eagerly awaiting further news about the cast and plot. With Justin Theroux now confirmed in the lead role, many are feeling optimistic about the future of the franchise and excited to see what the sequel will bring to the table.
