Bill & Ted co-star Ed Solomon says the franchise could go on with the lead star’s daughters featuring in the new movie.
It was recently confirmed that Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter ares set to reprise their iconic roles as Bill and Ted three decades on and now Solomon says there is the potential for further movies without the main stars, as their daughters are to be introduced in the next movie.
Solomon said: “Yeah I mean if this movie works out and people come to see it, yeah then it could go on with Bill and Ted’s daughters, I guess. But that’s not something that we’re really focused on right now. We want to do this first.”
The duo will be back as Theodore ‘Ted’ Logan and Bill S Preston Esq in ‘Bill & Ted Face The Music’, with Alex confirming the news on his Twitter account.
He wrote on the social media site: “We’re tuning the air guitars.
Producers announced the exciting news at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this week, where it was also announced that writers Chris Matheson and Solomon would return for the sequel with Dean Parisot confirmed as taking the helm of the comedy movie.
It will follow the story of Bill and Ted as they deal with their responsibilities to their families now they are coming up to middle age.
Keanu had previously that there was a ‘Bill and Ted’ sequel in the works.
He said: “Bill and Ted are still alive. The writers have a story and we’re trying to make it … Basically, they’re supposed to write a song to save the world and they haven’t done that. The pressure of having to save the world, their marriages are falling apart, their kids are kind of mad at them, and then someone comes from the future and tells them if they don’t write the song it’s just not the world, it’s the universe. So they have to save the universe because time is breaking apart.”
‘Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure’ was released in 1989 and ‘Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey’ was unveiled two years later in 1991.
