Why Isn't Geena Davis In Beetlejuice 2? She Thinks It Has To Do With Her Looks

l intro 1713399064

In the decades since “Beetlejuice” brought laughs and frights to the silver screen, Geena Davis has expanded her filmography tremendously — narrowly avoiding having her career ruined by a pirate adventure movie along the way. She has appeared prominently in such cinematic classics as “Thelma & Louise,” the true story-based “A League of Their Own,” and “The Long Kiss Goodnight,” and also left her mark on the television scene via “Commander in Chief,” “The Exorcist,” and “Grey’s Anatomy.” Unsurprisingly, Davis will continue to add plenty more credits to her impressive résumé.

First and foremost is a feature written and directed by none other than “The Batman” star Zoë Kravitz. “Blink Twice” follows a waitress who falls for a tech businessman, leading her to travel with him to his private island and quickly realize that the situation is not as it seems. Davis joins the likes of Channing Tatum and Naomi Ackie in a currently undisclosed role. She’s also slated to appear in some capacity in director Leena Yadav’s “Cowgirl’s Last Ride.” Davis’ latest credit as of publication is the 2023 drama “Fairyland” from director Andrew Durham, where she plays Munca.

Evidently, when it comes to finding acting work, Geena Davis is doing just fine. Still, it stands to reason that when “Beetlejuice Beetlejuice” arrives on September 5, her absence will be felt.
