The rumors linking Depp to Beetlejuice 2 began circulating in June of last year after unconfirmed reports surfaced suggesting that Depp would be joining the cast.

Fans were concerned about the possibility, especially since the rumor sprouted shortly after Depp's defamation trial with ex-wife Amber Heard, which ended with the actor being awarded $15 million in damages.

Production for Beetlejuice 2 officially began in May, with Winona Ryder reprising her role as Lydia Deetz. Ortega joined the cast as Ryder's daughter, and Michael Keaton returned to play the iconic character of Beetlejuice. Other actors, such as Filipe Cates and Justin Theroux, are also part of the cast, although Theroux's role has yet to be specified.

As of now, Depp's involvement, if any, with the production is simply fan speculation.
