Brigette Lundy-Paine and Samara Weaving have been cast in Bill & Ted Face the Music, the third installment in the franchise that returns Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter to their iconic roles. The film, from Orion Pictures, has set an August 21, 2020 release date via United Artists Releasing.
Lundy-Paine will play Billie Logan, the daughter to Reeves’ Ted “Theodore” Logan, while Weaving is Thea Preston, daughter of Winter’s Bill S. Preston. They join their dads, now middle-aged best friends, as they 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. William Sadler also stars.
Dean Parisot directs the pic from a screenplay by returning franchise writers Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon. Scott Kroopf is producing alongside Alex Lebovici and Steve Ponce on behalf of Hammerstone Studios. Steven Soderbergh is executive producing with John Ryan Jr., Scott Fischer and John Santilli.
