Fans have been waiting to see Wyld Stallyns unite the universe since Bill and Ted bested Death in 1991’s ‘Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey.’ Nearly 30 years have passed since the first Bill and Ted film took everyone on an Excellent Adventure and rumors and stories have swirled for years about a return to the franchise by both Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter. Today it is official! It was previously reported that original franchise creators Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon have written the script for the film, but now we also know that Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest) has been confirmed as director.
Here’s the joint statement from Reeves and Winter:
“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!”
Here is the film’s current synopsis:
When we last met Bill and Ted 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 and roll, middle age and the responsibilities of family have caught up with these two best friends who have not yet fulfilled their destiny. They’ve written thousands of tunes, but they have yet to write a good one, much less the greatest song ever written. With the fabric of time and space tearing around them, a visitor from the future warns our heroes that only their song can save life as we know it. Out of luck and fresh out of inspiration, Bill and Ted set out on a time travel adventure to seek the song that will set their world right and bring harmony in the universe as we know it. Together with the aid of their daughters, a new crop of historical figures, and some sympathetic music legends, Bill and Ted find much, much more than just a song.
