With her expanding list of horror parts, which may include Beetlejuice 2, Jenna Ortega is becoming a certified Scream Queen. These jobs are so thrilling that Wednesday season 2 is no longer at the top of her list of greatest forthcoming projects. Although though Jenna Ortega was already well-known for her work in suspense dramas and horror films like X, You, Scream (2022), and The Babysitter: Killer Queen, Tim Burton’s Wednesday series marked the beginning of her meteoric rise to fame. When Ortega took on the renowned gothic daughter from The Addams Family, the program became one of the most watched series of all time on Netflix, enhancing her standing as a highly sought-after horror actor.
Wednesday was soon followed by Ortega’s outstanding portrayal of Tara Carpenter in the horror sequel Scream 6. After these two projects, her most highly-anticipated future part was her return as the title character in Wednesday season 2, on which Jenna Ortega will also be an executive producer. But, Ortega now has two additional probable future roles that eclipse the enthusiasm for Wednesday season 2. Along with her anticipated comeback in the as-yet-unconfirmed Scream 7, the actress is in negotiations to portray Lydia Deetz’s daughter in the horror-comedy sequel Beetlejuice 2, a movie that has been in development for more than 35 years.
Beetlejuice 2 Is Much More Entertaining Than Wednesday Season 2
One of the most intriguing casting rumors for a new horror sequel is that Jenna Ortega may play the title poltergeist alongside Michael Keaton in Beetlejuice 2. Making Jenna Ortega the young star is already a surefire way to ensure the success of the upcoming horror-comedy Beetlejuice 2. While the majority of legacy sequels to classic horror movies like Halloween, The Exorcist, and – at the time – Scream (2022) have cast lesser-known actors in new lead roles, this is not the case with Beetlejuice 2. Mckenna Grace and Finn Wolfhard were the youthful cast’s leaders in Ghostbusters: Afterlife, but they didn’t have Ortega’s level of authority.
Jenna Ortega is the ideal actress to expose a new generation to the campy appeal of Beetlejuice, which is still one of Tim Burton’s best films, due to her fame and successes in the horror genre. As Lydia Deetz’s daughter, Ortega would also act alongside Winona Ryder in Beetlejuice 2, bringing together the casts of Wednesday and Stranger Things, two of the most well-liked contemporary horror programs. While promoting Wednesday, Ortega named Beetlejuice as her favorite Tim Burton movie, so tackling the sequel would also align with her own interests. Additionally, Ortega has stated that she prefers acting in movies over television, claiming Beetlejuice 2 would be a more personally fulfilling project than Wednesday season 2.
