Johnny Depp is rumoured to be making his post-trial film comeback by starring in Beetlejuice 2.
Fans have flooded social media with the claim after they noticed the embattled actor’s name seemed to appear on a call sheet found when they said they searched for the upcoming Beetlejuice 2, set for release in 2025, on Google.
Alongside Depp are Michael Keaton, 70, and Winona Ryder, 50, both of whom are rumoured to be reprising their roles from director Tim Burton’s 1988 original.
The rumours started making the rounds ahead of the jury in Depp’s defamation case against ex-wife Amber Heard, 36, being dismissed to deliberate on the feud.
The 1998 film revolved around a dead married couple – played by Alec Baldwin, 64, and Geena Davis, 66 – who are resurrected as gormless ghosts who become hell-bent on haunting an irritating family out of their dream home.
Fans said they would be overjoyed to see Depp, 58, in the follow up – especially after his gruelling days in court fighting to prove he is not a domestic abuser.
