LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Jenna Ortega seems to be on a roll and there is no stopping her to be ruling the slasher and thriller genre. After Netflix's 'Wednesday,' she quickly jumped onto 'Scream VI' which is again a massive hit, and now Miss. Ortega is confirmed to be in a major role in the upcoming 'Beetlejuice 2' movie. The 80s fantasy horror comedy movie was helmed by Tim Burton, while written by Michael McDowell, Larry Wilson, and Warren Skaaren. This 80s classic movie was produced by The Geffen Company and distributed by Warner Bros. 'Beetlejuice' starred Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, Jeffrey Jones, Catherine O'Hara, Winona Ryder, and Michael Keaton as the titular character. Furthermore, the movie was a critical and commercial success, grossing 74.7 million US dollars from a budget of 15 million US dollars. It won the Academy Award for Best Makeup and three Saturn Awards: Best Horror Film, Best Makeup, and Best Supporting Actress for Sylvia Sidney. 

Regardless, Jenna Ortega doesn't "give a s**t" about a little wardrobe malfunction apparently. The actress brushed off a recent one she experienced at the 'Scream VI' global premiere. Recently, the 'Wednesday' star shared photos from the event on her Instagram and addressed the malfunction.
