“Bill & Ted” sequel is ramping up production to start filming on June 17th in New Orleans and Atlanta
“Bill & Ted” sequel will reportedly start filming on June 17th in New Orleans, Louisiana, and Atlanta, Georgia. At the moment, the only cast members for the upcoming movie are reportedly Keanu Reeves, Alex Winter, and William Sadler. But, more casting announcements should be coming soon.
The film, which is currently in pre-production, has also released a plot synopsis of sorts, per Deadline:
When we last picked up with the most audacious dudes they were time-traveling teenagers trying to pass history class and win the battle of the bands. Once prophesied to save the universe with their rock ‘n’ roll, according to the production the new movie will see the two best friends as middle-aged men with family responsibilities who have yet to fulfill their destiny. They’ve written thousands of tunes, but they have yet to write a good one, much less the greatest song ever. With the fabric of time and space tearing around them, a visitor from the future warns the duo that only their music can save life as we know it. Out of luck and inspiration, Bill and Ted set out on another time-travel adventure — with the help of their daughters, a new crop of historical figures and some sympathetic music legends — to seek the song that will set their world right and bring harmony in the universe as we know it.
The movie’s director Dean Parisot (‘Galaxy Quest, RED 2’) is onboard, with a script by returning writers Chris Matheson (‘A Goofy Movie’) and Ed Solomon (‘Men in Black’).
