After a multitude of setbacks and delays, the long-gestating third ‘Bill & Ted’ film will finally start filming June 17th in New Orleans and Atlanta.
At the moment, the cast list only has Keanu Reeves, Alex Winter and William Sadler. But, more casting announcements should be coming soon.
The synopsis of ‘Bill & Ted Face the Music’ is as follows:
“When we last picked up with the most audacious dudes they were time-traveling teenagers trying to pass history class and win the battle of the bands. Once prophesied to save the universe with their rock ‘n’ roll, according to the production the new movie will see the two best friends as middle-aged men with family responsibilities who have yet to fulfill their destiny. They’ve written thousands of tunes, but they have yet to write a good one, much less the greatest song ever.
With the fabric of time and space tearing around them, a visitor from the future warns the duo that only their music can save life as we know it. Out of luck and inspiration, Bill and Ted set out on another time-travel adventure — with the help of their daughters, a new crop of historical figures and some sympathetic music legends — to seek the song that will set their world right and bring harmony in the universe as we know it.”
The film has director Dean Parisot (‘Galaxy Quest, RED 2’) onboard, with a script by returning scribes Chris Matheson (‘A Goofy Movie’) and Ed Solomon (‘Men in Black’). The veteran writing duo are responsible for ‘Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure’ and ‘Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey.’
Moreover, during a Q&A session at the Slamdance film festival, via CNET, producer Steven Soderbergh gave a tease on when the film could release. He said that the film would “be a good Christmas present.”
So, perhaps this winter we can see the ending to this 30-year-old franchise!
