Johnny Depp is said to appear in the upcoming Beetlejuice 2 alongside his ex-girlfriend Winona Ruder.
The rumours began after fans reported that the cast list included the names of Ryder, Depp, and Michael Keaton.
The rumours have been circulating since Depp filed a defamation case against his ex-wife Amber Heard.
The plot of the 1998 film centres around a ‘dead couple who are harassed by an intolerable family who have moved into their home,’ prompting them to enlist the help of a spiteful spirit to evict the family.
As a result of the widespread conjecture, followers have resorted to social media to demonstrate their support for Depp in the form of a scary persona.
“I’m happy for Johnny!!” one admirer said, while another said, “Thrilled to see Johnny Depp added to the cast of Beetlejuice 2.” Robert Downey Jr. wants Johnny to play Sherlock Holmes in the upcoming film!”
Some internet users, however, were sceptical of the rumours. “So you people performed a Google search for Beetlejuice 2, saw his name crop up, and assume that means he got cast in it?” one fan remarked. LMAO! I understand why you support him.”
