Earlier in March, it was finally announced by Hammerstone Studios that production on Bill and Ted 3 (Bill and Ted Face The Music) will begin this Summer in New Orleans. The filmmakers had also confirmed that the much-anticipated threequel wouldn’t just see the return of its old cast but would also introduce two new characters–the daughters of the titular duo.
The official Twitter account for Bill and Ted 3 has tweeted the casting announcement that actress Brigette Lundy-Paine and Samara Weaving have been cast to play as Bill and Ted’s daughters.
“Meet the world’s most excellent daughters! Bill’s daughter, Thea Preston, played by @Sweaving, and Ted’s daughter, Billie Logan, played by Brigette Lundy-Paine. Who’s ready to Face the Music?? ” reads the tweet. You can check it out below.
Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon have returned to the franchise to pen the threequel while Dean Parisot will direct the film. Scott Kroopf is producing alongside Hammerstone Studios’ Alex Lebovici and Steve Ponce. Steven Soderbergh is executive producing with John Ryan Jr., Scott Fischer and John Santilli.
Lundy-Paine stars in the Netflix series Atypical and has appeared in The Glass Castle starring Woody Harrelson and Naomi Watts. Earlier last year, the star came out as Queer.
Weavings appeared in Amazon’s Picini at Hanging Rock and Fox Searchlight’s Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri. The actress recently finished filming Guns Akimbo starring with Daniel Radcliffe.
“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.”
Bill and Ted 3 will be released worldwide on August 21, 2020.
