Well, our quest for details about a "Beetlejuice" sequel continues, with the most recent stop taking us to Wionna Ryder at the Toronto International Film Festival, where she's promoting her new crime film, "The Iceman" with Michael Shannon.
Unfortunately, the former Lydia Deetz didn't exactly have the deetz on the sequel from Tim Burton and writer Seth Grahame-Smith.
"You tell me — I don't know!" Ryder said. "I've heard from journalists, that's how I found out, but I'm seeing Tim next week, and I will let you know."
From the way James Cameron is talking about it, we may need to start referring to "Avatar 4" as "Avatar: Episode I."
When MTV News caught up with the director during promotions for the "Titanic 3-D," Cameron spoke for the first time about his plan for a third sequel to his 2009 mega hit.
"I have an idea for a fourth," Cameron said. "I haven't really put pen to paper on it, but basically it goes back to the early expeditions of Pandora, and kind of what went wrong with the humans and the Na'vi and what that was like to be an explorer and living in that world."
MTV News caught up with Jack Huston at the premiere for season three of HBO's "Boardwalk Empire." You may know Huston from his badass role as Richard Harrow, but next year you're going to see him alongside Daniel Radcliffe in the beat poet-murder mystery, "Kill Your Darlings."
And wouldn't you know it? Huston had the nicest things to say about his young costar, Radcliffe.
"I've never seen [anything like] the way he works, such tenacity," Huston said. "He's got a hunger for the craft. It was one of the loveliest experiences."
"Wreck-It Ralph," if nothing else, is all about smashing through stereotypes. John C. Reilly provides the voice of the titular Ralph, a video game villain who is sick of his bad guy label and sets out to show a different side of himself by invading other realms of the gaming universe.
One such realm is Sugar Rush, a racing game populated by, among others, Vanellope von Schweetz, a nine year-old girl voiced by comedian Sarah Silverman. "All she wants to do is race," Silverman told MTV News about her character, "but they won't let her, because she's a glitch."

When Tim Burton's highly anticipated "Frankenweenie" arrives in theaters on October 5, it will be the culmination of a closely guarded project that Burton felt was necessary to take his time with, as he did with his stop-motion animated classic “The Nightmare Before Christmas.”
MTV News caught up with Burton about "Frankenweenie," a project long in the making, as part of our Fall Movie Preview week. Based on the classic "Frankenstein" tale, Burton's latest centers on a boy who brings his dog back from the dead, leading to all the quirky havoc one expects from a Burton film.
"There were always other characters and kids I wanted to portray," Burton said. "For me, it's like a more pure version of it."
Ethan Hawke isn't exactly the first actor that springs to mind when you're thinking of a lead for a horror movie. The 41-year-old actor has never really starred in a scary movie per se (unless you count "Daybreakers"), and there's a good reason for that.
Until starring in "Sinister," in theaters on October 5, Hawke thought actually making a horror movie would be too frightening of an experience.
Check out two exclusive images from "Sinister" and the rest of our Fall Movie Preview.
Hawke, who's currently in Greece working on the sequel to "Before Sunset" with Richard Linklater, spoke to MTV News for our Fall Movie Preview and shared his old fear of making scary movies.
Nearly 30 years after Patrick Swayze, Charlie Sheen and C. Thomas Howell took up arms against invading Soviet troops, a whole new crop of Hollywood's Pretty Young Things will fend off an equally formidable foe in the upcoming remake of "Red Dawn," hitting theaters November 21.
Starring Chris Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson and Josh Peck, the film follows a rag-tag group of teens as their town is taken over by North Korean forces. As part of MTV's Fall Movie Preview Week, we've not only snagged an exclusive first-look image from the film, but chatted up Peck about the long-gestating project and its roots in the '80s classic.

Production began on the actioner three years ago, long before Hemsworth wielded Thor's hammer or Hutcherson entered the arena as Peeta, and for co-star Peck, the wait for "Red Dawn" to break on the big-screen has been a long one, to say the least.
No one is more excited for "The Guilt Trip," the Seth Rogen/Barbra Streisand mother/son road trip movie, than one of its stars, Ari Graynor. You see, she got to geek out on set starring alongside the legendary singer and actress in the flick opening this December.
"I know! I just need to take little beat and say 'I know'!" she told MTV News about her part in the film, written by Dan Fogelman and directed by Anne Fletcher. It follows Rogen, an inventor who takes his mom (Streisand) on a road trip to sell his latest invention. He also is aiming to reunite his mom with her lost love.
"I can't talk too much about it, but I will just say that being in the same zip code as Barbra Streisand is like you know… There isn't a bigger dream come true," she said. "It was really exciting. The script for that movie is genius. It's a road trip movie with Seth Rogen and Barbra Streisand as son and mother. Like what could be better? Literally nothing, that the answer. Nothing could better."
You know how there are all of these amazingly brilliant shows on TV right now. There's a reason for that. Many would give David Chase, the man behind "The Sopranos," credit for ushering in a golden age of television and allowing for serious, adult shows like "Mad Men," "Breaking Bad," and "Game of Thrones" to exist.
This fall, Chase will unveil his first film, "Not Fade Away," the only thing he's produced since Journey played "The Sopranos" out in 2007. MTV News spoke with Chase for our Fall Movie Preview about his film, which tells the story of a young band of musicians during the 1960s, and why the music at the heart the movie is so important to him.
Check out exclusive images from "Not Fade Away" and the rest of our Fall Movie Preview films.
Why is this the story you tell for your first film?
I just love the music from the period. I always consider myself lucky to have been at a certain age when that music came out, the first British invasion. I love working with that music. One of my favorite things about working on 'The Sopranos' was doing the music for it. Selfishly, I wanted to continue that by doing a movie that had a lot of music in it. Just being alive back then and how important music became to people back then. It played a central role in everyone's life, radio and pop music, maybe more than today. Although, I really can't say.
When the clock ticks down on "3, 2, 1… Frankie Go Boom" this fall, actor Ron Perlman will show off his more feminine side — quite literally, in fact.
Perlman appears opposite fellow "Sons of Anarchy" star Charlie Hunnam in director Jordan Roberts' comedy as Phyllis, an ex-con computer hacker who went by the name Phil before undergoing a sex change. And it's not just surface details that changed when Phil became Phyllis, either — to hear Perlman tell it, it's the whole shebang.
"Phil is now really, truly Phyllis," Perlman told MTV News in an interview for our Fall Movie Preview week. "She's true transgender, had the operation, all of the plumbing has been rearranged. You do the math."
