One of the most highly-anticipated new movies of 2020 is Bill & Ted Face The Music, a film that I still can’t believe actually is getting made! The creative team has been trying to get this movie made for years, and the fact that it’s happening is totally radical!
We’ve got a couple of new photos to share with you today from the film. The first image (above) was shared by makeup and effects dude Bill Corso as he’s hangin’ out with Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves who are back as Bill Preston and Ted Logan. The other photo below features the main characters hanging out with their daughters in a garage.
Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest) is directing the film from a script written by original franchise screenwriters Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon. Here’s the synopsis:
Following 1989’s Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and 1991’s Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, the stakes are higher than ever for William “Bill” S. Preston Esq. (Winter) and Theodore “Ted” Logan (Reeves). Yet to fulfill their rock and roll destiny, the now middle-aged best friends 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 families, old friends and a few music legends.
When previously talking about the story the film will tell, Matheson said:
“They were told when they were teenagers that they were going to save reality, and they’ve been working on it the whole time. Now an emissary from the future comes and says, ‘You’ve got to do it right now. We’ve got literally 80 minutes or all of reality will come to an end.’”
I love that! The series also stars Amy Stoch and Hal Landon Jr. as Missy and Ted’s dad; Samara Weaving and Brigette Lundy-Paine as the daughters of Bill and Ted; Beck Bennett as Ted’s younger brother, Deacon; Jayma Mays and Erinn Hayes as the wives of Bill and Ted; Kid Cudi, and Anthony Carrigan as the villain.
The movie is set to be released on August 21st, 2020.
