Bloom has launched international sales on the Croisette on Bill And Ted Face The Music that reunites Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter 27 years after Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey.
Dean Parisot will direct from a screenplay by original creators Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon. MGM’s Orion Pictures will distribute in the US.
Scott Kroopf will produce with Alex Lebovici and Steve Ponce of Hammerstone Studios, while Steven Soderbergh serves as an executive producer alongside Scott Fischer, John Ryan Jr., and John Santilli.
The third episode in the cult series that launched in 1989 with Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and continued two years later with Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey finds the hapless duo languishing in middle age struggling to write the song that can save the universe.
When Bill and Ted embark on a time-travel adventure to find the music, they bring along their daughters, a new crop of historical figures, and a handful of sympathetic music legends.
Bloom’s Alex Walton said, “Fans of Bill and Ted have been waiting for Reeves and Winter to reunite since their last Bogus Journey in 1991. This is excellent!”
Reeves and Winter added, “We couldn’t be more excited to get the whole band back together again. Chris and Ed wrote an amazing script, and with Dean at the helm we’ve got a dream team!”
Bloom’s Cannes sales slate include Julius Onah’s Luce starring Naomi Watts, Octavia Spencer, Tim Roth and Kelvin Harrison Jr.; Yuval Adler’s The Operative; Josh Trank’s Fonzo starring Tom Hardy; David Sandberg’s Kung Fury starring Michael Fassbender; Sam Levinson’s Assassination Nation, and Matthew Heineman’s A Private War starring Rosamund Pike.
