Johnny Depp and Jenna Ortega
In Beetlejuice 2, which will be directed by Tim Burton, a regular partner of Johnny Depp’s on eight films, Jenna Ortega is slated to make an appearance.
According to rumours, the 1988 classic’s sequel could feature a surprise appearance from the Pirates of the Caribbean star.
Because of this, some people have begun to speculate that Ortega and Depp are now an item.
However, the rumour has now been cleaned up by the Scream star.
In a now-deleted Instagram story, Ortega dismissed the relationship rumours, adding that she has never even met Depp.
“This is so ridiculous I can’t even laugh,” she said. “I have never met or worked with Johnny Depp in my life. Please stop spreading lies and leave us alone.”
Rumours about the pair began to swirl after gossip blog Deuxmoi posted that Depp and Ortega had been spotted together while working on Beetlejuice 2.
Along with Ortega, a representative for the Edward Scissorhands actor has also squashed the reports.
Speaking to NME, the rep said: “Mr Depp has no personal or professional relationship with Ms Ortega whatsoever. He has never met her or spoken to her.
“He is not involved in any project with her, nor does he intend to be. He is appalled by these baseless and malicious rumours that are intended to harm his reputation and career.”
So that’s put those rumours to bed.
It also seemingly dismisses the reports that Depp will appear in Beetlejuice 2, which is set to be released next year.
Watch some behind the scenes videos of filming below:
The X actress has previously opened up about her experiences with ‘toxic’ and ‘manipulative’ trolls on social media and how she deals with them.
As part of Variety’s Actors on Actors series, Ortega told Maleficent actress Elle Fanning: “Social media, what it does to anyone our age, it’s such a comparing game.

Later this year, Disney’s most well-known Halloween-themed movie will commemorate 30 years since it first opened in theatres…where did the time go we don’t know?!
Disney’s The Nightmare Before Christmas wasn’t initially a movie the famous House of Mouse wanted to make; instead, it was motivated by a poem that producer Tim Burton wrote while working as a Disney animator.
Even though the movie’s first theatrical run only brought in $50 million, repeated screenings over the years brought in a total of more than $40 million extra. Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas wasn’t a hit, but it wasn’t a flop either, and in the 30 years since its release, it has continued to draw new admirers and even developed some cult status.
People love combining the elements of Halloween and Christmas and Jack and his Halloween town friends have become a worldwide brand that is loved by many from bags, to clothing, home accessories and even snow globes!
A live-action remake is allegedly in the works, and it has the potential to draw both new and old fans—particularly those who might find the new live-action version more intriguing than the original, given that Johnny Depp is rumoured to be playing the lead role.
Watch a Fan made video here:
Depp has been in the public eye over the recent years due to his divorce to ex wife Amber Heard, his standing ovation at Cannes film festival and for playing as part of the band ‘Hollywood Vampire’ opposite Alice Cooper and his last role in Disney as Captain Jack in the last Pirates of the Caribbean.
This movie would be a return to Disney and a fanbase that have loved his work over the years combining it with the fandom that lives for ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’! Could Christmas and Halloween come earlier than we think?!
