This news is not technically Horror, but it seems that most everyone knows of Bill & Ted and it would wrong to not share. Bill S. Preston Esq., and Ted Theodore Logan, the radical and excellent duo that made their mark in the 80’s will be once again returning to the big screen for their third film after 27 years.
Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter will return to reprise their iconic roles in BILL & TED FACE THE MUSIC. Director Dean Parisot prepares to steer the ship with original creators Chris Matheson and Ed Soloman having written the script.
Here is what Reeves and Winters had to say in the press release:
“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!”
“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 prophesized 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."
BILL & TED FACE THE MUSIC will be produced by Scott Kroopf along 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.
MGM will be releasing the movie in the U.S. under the Orion Pictures banner as it was originally.
