Back in 1999, Dean Parisot made a little movie called Galaxy Quest, a scifi-adventure comedy starring Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, and Alan Rickman, which at first glance seemed like a parody — and a poke at — scifi franchises like Star Trek. There’s the cast of a cancelled 1970s science fiction television series forced to eke out a living at science fiction fan conventions and grand opening store promotions 20 years after their heyday. Said cast resents the show’s main star, a scene-stealer who takes credit for their successes and often makes paid appearances without them. And there’s the rabid, geeky fans at the convention who seemingly can’t differentiate between an actor and the role he played.
But while Galaxy Quest is humorous in its parody of all those stereotypes, it turns out the film is actually a loving homage to science fiction and its loyal fans. And it’s perfect in every way.
We know that Bill & Ted 3 is coming to theaters Summer 2020, and now we know that filming on the long-awaited sequel begins today!
The official Bill & Ted movie Twitter page posted last night that “We begin filming tomorrow, dude!”, while franchise co-screenwriter Ed Solomon posted to his account, “Monday. Crew call: 7:30. First shot: 9:00.” This morning, Solomon posted the words “Party On” with a photo of a sign showing the way to the set.
Now that Bill & Ted 3, which is currently going by the working title Bill & Ted Face the Music, is finally on the way officially with Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter returning to play the title roles and William Sadler even returning to play Death once again, it’s time for some fresh faces to join the party.
It’s being reported that Samara Weaving and Brigette Lundy-Paine have joined the cast of the long-awaited trilogy-maker, and that they’ll be playing Bill and Ted’s daughters.
We’ve been hearing whispers about a Bill & Ted 3 for many years now (and long before that). But today, it’s been made official.
Nearly three decades after the 1989 original, Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, and its 1991 sequel, Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, it’s been confirmed that a third movie titled Bill & Ted Face the Music is finally happening, and that Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter will both be returning to reprise their roles as the title characters.
