"Catch you later, Bill and Ted!" Almost three decades after their music promised to save the universe, we really will get to catch up on our favorite pair of clueless rockers again. We're headed for a most excellent adventure with the Wyld Stallyns in Bill & Ted 3. No way? Yes way! What happened to Theodore "Ted"” Logan and Bill S. Preston Esq., over the years? Which old faces will join them for their next journey? Here's everything we know about the film so far.
Title and Premise
The third film in the franchise will be called Bill & Ted Face the Music, because it will reveal the now middle-aged dads never delivered on the promise of their utopian-bringing music, since they never actually got around to making it. Oops.
According to screenwriter Ed Solomon, the movie will see them trying to make that right; They travel back in time to watch their younger selves, which means we could see three pairs of Teds and Bills on screen together. Solomon said we'll see footage from the original 1989 movie that has George Carlin's Rufus and the Circle K, where strange things always seem to be afoot.
Writers and Director
The film will be directed by Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest), with original character creators and writers Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson both returning to pen the script. The duo worked on the screenplay for ten years, but they couldn't find funding. Most people they approached wanted to do a reboot instead of another sequel, which would have been totally bogus.
Filming and Release Date
So far the only performer from either of the first two films who is confirmed to rejoin the most excellent pair of Reeves and Winter is the Grim Reaper himself, actor William Sadler.
Solomon revealed one new character we will meet is someone named Kelly, "which is George (Carlin')s daughter's name," and the character Kelly "has a very significant role in the journey."
Also, bring back Station or we riot.
