The sequel to 1988’s hit fright flick “Beetlejuice,” is currently searching for investors. Too bad it’s Barry Burton, not Tim Burton, who is helming the project.
In a new Funny or Die video, “Orange is the New Black” actress Natasha Lyonne has been tapped to replace Michael Keaton as the star of the film. The fake and befuddled Burton explains: “She’s the fiery fucking redhead on the prison sex movie ‘Orange is the New Jack.’ Everybody loves her.”
Lyonne dresses in the full costume and makeup as the original movie ghost, and actually delivers a decent impression in her deep husky voice. The original film was rated PG but with countless utterances of profanity from Lyonne, this video is certainly not.
Rather than an original plot, “Beetlejuice 2” plans to parody and put their spin on several other hit movies, including Flashjuice, Serpicojuice, Scarjuice and The Royal Tenenjuice.
“Good directors always steal from the best. And that’s what I did,” the director says in the video.
Watch the “Beetlejuice 2” video above. Maybe even watch it three times.
