Fire up the phone booth, because Ted Theodore Logan and Bill S. Preston, Esq. appear to be gearing up for a third adventure.
In a Hollywood landscape overrun with remakes and reboots, Bill & Ted creators Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson are keeping it old school and planning a traditional sequel to their two cult-classic comedies instead of a reimagining for a younger generation.
The new film, which is being set up as a mid-level comedy in the vein of Hot Tub Time Machine, would see the return of both Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves (but, sadly, not the late George Carlin). Galaxy Quest director Dean Parisot is currently attached to direct.
MGM, who’s recently returned from the brink of financial ruin, is currently looking for a partner to finance the project – which will presumably find an older Bill and Ted, and reveal what they’ve become in the years since the last film’s debut.
While this news is certainly exciting for fans, don’t start lining up to get your tickets yet. Even if the project does come together, Parisot is currently scheduled to direct the sequel to RED this coming spring. That project would have to be completed before the filmmaker could move ahead with Bill and Ted’s newest big adventure. That being said, any Bill & Ted sequel news is a good thing as far as we're concerned.
What do you think? Will Bill and Ted still use a phone booth as a time machine or will they just have an iPhone app for that? Share your thoughts with us below.
