Legends foretold this moment, but we thought they were mere myths. As everyone went around bemoaning the the next reboot or sequel around they corner, it burrowed underground. There had been whispers for years. The stars had been hounded at every turn. Now, it’s officially official: Bill & Ted are coming back to the big screen!
Seriously, at this point it was almost common knowledge, but that doesn’t make it any less exciting. The world is all the brighter with another round of adventures with the coolest dudes ever to travel through time and hail from San Dimas, California. And yes, there’s no shenanigans about, both Keanu Reeves and Alex Winters themselves are returning to their iconic roles.
While the rumblings have been almost defining for the past year or two, the project was announced at the Cannes. The move was made to shop the film to both foreign investors and international distributors. In the US the rights are retained by MGM with plans to release the latest entry, entitled Bill & Ted Face The Music, under their renewed Orion branch. Further reason to celebrate is that the writers behind both Excellent Adventure and Bogus Journey, Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon, are behind the latest script. Dean Parisot, who isn’t a stranger to cult properties, after helming Galaxy Quest, is set to direct.
Things are currently in the early going of pre-production, but a semblance of a plot has managed to squeak out. The film will focus on Bill S. Preston Esq. and Ted Theodore Logan as they traverse the trials of middle age. Though they still have Wyld Stallions and have written numerous songs, they still haven’t nailed down that one song that unites all of humankind. Due to this, the fabric of time and space is slowly slipping apart. With the help of a friend from the future, their daughters, some new historical figures and some luck, everything should turn out just fine.
We’ll do our part and clog your timeline with even more stories on this project, as soon as news develops. Trust us when we say, news can only improve what we know already know. The wait till this hits theaters is going to be unbearable.
