Righteous news hit the Internet for Bill & Ted fans today with the word that Galaxy Quest director Dean Parisot has been attached to direct the third installment in the Bill & Ted saga. Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter are already publicly attached to star in the script from the original Bill & Ted creators Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson.
The really good news, when one looks at situation as a whole, is that this will NOT be a reboot or remake like so many of the movies from some of our favorite franchises in the past couple of years. This production will look at where Ted Theodore Logan and Bill S. Preston, Esq. are in their lives today.
Although MGM Pictures still holds the rights to the Bill & Ted franchise, word is that the production is being shopped around to other studios to co-finance the project. NerdBastards will let you know which studios join the production as word is leaked out.
Don’t get to excited though and run to get in line at the theater, Parisot still has to finish directing the sequel to the sleeper hit RED that starts shooting this spring. A couple of years ago when Alex Winters started tweeting about a third Bill & Ted movie this NerdBastard never thought it would get this far.
What do you think about the choice of Parisot for director? What are you looking for in a third Bill & Ted movie?
This NerdBastard wonders . . .
What are they gonna do about Rufus ? ? ?
