‘Bill & Ted 3′ Is Happening With Keanu Reeves, Alex Winter and ‘Galaxy Quest’ Director
And somewhere ‘Ghostbusters 3‘ cries itself to sleep because ‘Bill & Ted’ were able to get their act together. Wyld Stallyns forever! ‘Bill & Ted 3′ is moving forward with original duo Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter, with the help of director Dean Parisot.
It’s been 20 years since Ted Logan and Bill S. Preston, Esq. graced our movie screens, but the underachieving wannabe rock stars are coming back, courtesy of a script from Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon. Matheson and Solomon also wrote scripts for both ‘Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure’ and ‘Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey.’
Vulture reports that Dean Parisot will direct. Parisot is best known for his work directing ‘Galaxy Quest,’ the wacky comedy that found a cast of sci-fi TV stars embarking on a real adventure in space and coming face to face with a legitimate alien threat. He also helmed ‘Fun with Dick and Jane’ and is currently working on ‘Red 2.’
The story will follow Bill and Ted in their 40s, with Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter returning to reprise their original roles. Winter was last seen in a 2007 episode of the television series ‘Bones,’ but has been dedicated to directing in recent years.
We’ve got just one word for this sequel: STATION!
