Despite the fact that the film is one of the great classics of 1980s cinema, at the time it was very difficult to get the cast, because when the actors read the script for Burton’s film they saw it as “strange” They didn’t want to get involved in it. In fact, the only one who jumped in without thinking about it was Geena Davis.
Although it was only recently when there was talk of a sequel to Bitelchús, the truth is that they have been working on it since the time the original film it hit theaters, but other Burton commitments that interested him more at the time, such as the Batman films, caused the project to be abandoned in a drawer.

Despite the fact that practically everything that is known about this sequel are rumours, such as that Johnny Depp is going to be one of the protagonists, the only thing that seems clear is that both Michael Keaton and Winona Ryder would be the protagonists again.
