Johnny Depp to Star in Tim Burton’s ‘Beetlejuice 2′. It seems long time friends and dynamic duo Johnny Depp and Tim Burton will be working together once again as reports are coming in that Burton has cast Johnny Depp in his upcoming film Beetlejuice 2.
For two decades the names Johnny Depp and Tim Burton were practically synonymous with one another when discussing film projects either in the works or nearing a premiere. From Edward Scissorhands to Alice Through the Looking Glass the pair were a dynamic duo and an almost guaranteed success at the box office. It’s been nearly 5 years since the two have worked on a film project together, and many fans are certain that another collaboration box office success could boost the careers of both Burton and Depp.
Depp has been under tight scrutiny from the industry after his loss of a libel case in the UK against The Sun newspaper who labeled Depp as a “wife beater” in several publications after allegations of abuse by his ex-wife Amber Heard. Currently, Johnny is working on filing an appeal for the case, but it didn’t take long for Warner Bros. to ask Depp to step away from his role as Grindelwald in the Fantastic Beasts franchise.
Depp has shared concern in the past about what would happen to him should he be out of work or blacklisted in Hollywood, but his lifelong friend Tim Burton seems to be a potential key to future success in the industry. Burton himself has been deemed rather lackluster himself since his departure from more iconic films and was ridiculed after the release of Disney’s live-action Dumbo with many moviegoers feeling he had lost his mojo.
Do you think another Tim Burton and Johnny Depp film would be helpful to the filmmakers careers? Or do you feel their time in the industry is running out?
