Amy Stoch and Hal London Jr. reprising roles for Bill & Ted Face the Music
Variety is reporting that Amy Stoch and Hal London Jr. will reprise their roles for Bill & Ted Face the Music. Beck Bennett (SNL) has also joined the cast.
Stoch’s Missy will join Landon Jr.’s police chief Chet Logan, Ted’s father, in the sequel. Bennett will play Deacon Logan, Ted’s younger brother.
The threequel will also star Samara Weaving (The Babysitter, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri) and Brigette Lundy-Paine (Atypical, The Glass Castle) as Bill and Ted’s daughters, respectively. William Sadler is also set to reprise his role as Death, with Anthony Carrigan (Barry, Gotham) playing the villain.
Yet to fulfill their rock and roll destiny, the now middle-aged best friends, Bill and Ted, set out on a new adventure, when a visitor from the future warns them that only their song can save life as we know it and bring harmony to the universe. Along the way, they will be helped by their daughters, old friends, a new batch of historical figures, and a few music legends.
Stars Keanu Reeves (John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum) and Alex Winter (The Lost Boys) recently posted a video message from the Hollywood Bowl thanking fans for their support over the years on getting a third film made and owing them “a huge debt of gratitude” while also revealing production would be beginning this summer.
News of a third Bill & Ted film has been floating around for years. After Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, original creators Chris Matheson (Imagine That) and Ed Solomon (Men in Black, Now You See Me) have penned the script, with Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest, Fun with Dick and Jane) confirmed to direct. Scott Kroopf (Limitless) will produce together with Alex Lebovici and Steve Ponce of Hammerstone Studios, with Steven Soderbergh serving as an executive producer alongside Scott Fischer, John Ryan Jr., and John Santilli.
MGM owns the rights to the film and will release in the U.S. under their Orion Pictures banner. Orion Pictures has set an August 21, 2020 release date for the film.
