Excellent! Galaxy Quest director Dean Parisot attached to Bill and Ted sequel

08.10.2012

After the success of BILL AND TED'S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE and BILL AND TED'S BOGUS JOURNEY, Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves have been mulling over a third Bill and Ted film for quite some time (is more than 20 years "some time?"). But, in the last year the talk has gotten much more heated than usual, with Winter announcing that the script was complete and ready to go.  Now, it appears that the screenwriters (and creators of Bill and Ted), Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson, have attached GALAXY QUEST director Dean Parisot to helm the sequel.

However, Parisot is currently set to shoot RED 2 in the spring, which would mean that helming the sequel would be at least another year away. 

But, what the hell, it's already been 21 years since the last one, so why not another?  I'm pretty sure I've made myself clear on where I stand on a Bill and Ted 3, but I know there are others who have some trepidation on the idea.  The phrase "too old" often pops up, but if someone could please tell the cast of THE EXPENDABLES 2 that, then maybe I'd consider that notion.

More as this develops.

Most Righteous, Indeed!

I can wait a year, so long as nothing happens to prevent this sequel from happening! William Sadler must return, even if for a cameo at the very least!

I'm all for a Bill & ted sequel for sure, but why not just get Alex Winter to direct it, so it can start up already. Hell even Keanu can do it since he is just starting to become a director. Oh well guess we can handle another yer or so of waiting.

These characters can really go anywhere, I'm not sure how they will approach the humor, because I do think it was sort of specific to the time, but should be a blast! And Galaxy Quest is a movie that apparently no one saw in theaters but everyone seems to love, so should be good.

Bill and Ted - one of the rare exceptions

I love both Bill and Ted movies but I think Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey is one of those rare exceptions where the sequel is better than the original. I hope the 3rd one breaks the barrier and becomes the best in the franchise!!
Is there any, trilogy, saga, franchise where the 3rd sequel is the best one out of the serious? I cannot think of one example where that has happened....OH WAIT A MINUTE....I think I thought of one, damn!! I think that Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade is the best

That seems like an inspired choice. For Red 2 as well. I wasn't aware he was doing that one either.

William Sadler as death was one of the greatest comedic performances of all time. Every time he opens his mouth in the movie I get a chuckle.
