Fans of Wild Stalyns Rejoice!!!
Bill S. Preston Esq. and Ted “Theodore” Logan are returning to the big screen in an all new adventure from the creators of the original series.
Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves are coming back for the third installment in the Bill & Ted franchise from original creators Chris Matheson (Imagine That) and Ed Solomon (Men in Black, Mosaic, Now You See Me). Matheson and Solomon have penned the script and Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest, Red 2) is confirmed to direct the new film titled “Bill & Ted Face the Music”.
According to the synopsis from the studio:
When we last met Bill and Ted they were time-traveling teenagers trying to pass history class and win the battle of the bands. Once prophesized to save the universe with their rock and roll, middle age and the responsibilities of family have caught up with these two best friends who have not yet fulfilled their destiny. They’ve written thousands of tunes, but they have yet to write a good one, much less the greatest song ever written. With the fabric of time and space tearing around them, a visitor from the future warns our heroes that only their song can save life as we know it. Out of luck and fresh out of inspiration, Bill and Ted set out on a time travel adventure to seek the song that will set their world right and bring harmony in the universe as we know it. Together with the aid of their daughters, a new crop of historical figures, and some sympathetic music legends, Bill and Ted find much, much more than just a song.
Reeves and Winter said about returning to the franchise after 27 years; “We couldn’t be more excited to get the whole band back together again. Chris and Ed wrote an amazing script, and with Dean at the helm we’ve got a dream team!”
Scott Kroopf (Limitless) will produce together with Alex Lebovici and Steve Ponce of Hammerstone Studios, with Steven Soderbergh serving as an executive producer alongside Scott Fischer, John Ryan Jr., and John Santilli.
Bill & Ted Face the Music is currently in pre-production.
