Bill & Ted Sequel is a Go with Keanu Reeves & Alex Winter
Bill & Ted to Return: Not a Reboot
Keanu Reeves (Ted Theodore Logan) and Alex Winter (Bill S. Preston Esq.) are returning to San Dimas. Yes indeed, the second Bill & Ted sequel is going to happen, and it will catch up with Bill and Ted as grownups. Well, at least as grown-up as can be expected.
Dean Parisot is set to direct, putting the sequel in capable hands. Besides Galaxy Quest, Parisot has also directed episodes of Justified and Monk. Shooting for the new Bill & Ted can't begin until Parisot finishes shooting the RED sequel, though.
In case you were wondering what Alex Winter has been up to, he hasn't been bored. Winter has been heavily involved with the Ben 10 series, both as a voice actor and director.
It's a shame that George Carlin is no longer around to reprise his role as Rufus.
Unlike so many recent studio remakes, which have simply recycled old material for a new generation, Solomon and Matheson took the unusual step of writing their third Bill & Ted script on spec in an attempt to ensure a take that would address where Mssrs. Ted Theodore Logan and Bill S. Preston, Esq. are in their lives today as opposed to being a reboot or remake.
