Dean Parisot To Take On Bill and Ted

Vulture is now saying that the planned third movie starring Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter reprising their roles as the time-travelling stoners “Bill and Ted” is moving forward and that GalaxyQuest director Dean Parisot will helm that movie.

Since helming GalaxyQuest, Parisot has mainly been directing television as well as the remake of Fun with Dick and Jane starring Jim Carrey and TeĆ” Leoni, but he’s also currently directing the star-studded action sequel RED 2 for Summit Entertainment.

There have been rumblings about a new Bill and Ted project for a couple years, although few people took it very seriously as word got out that original Bill & Ted creators Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson were supposedly working on a new script featuring the characters.

The original movie Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure hit theaters in 1989, grossing $40.5 million and leading to the sequel Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey two years later, which made slightly less.

This planned threequel would take a similar approach as Richard Linklater’s Before Sunset or Denys Arcand’s The Barbarian Invasions by revisiting Reeve’s Ted Theodore Logan and Winters’ Bill S. Preston, Esq. in the current day to see what they’ve been up to decades after their earlier adventures.
