Upcoming threequel Bill & Ted Face The Music has just added Brigette Lundy-Paine and Samara Weaving to the cast. Lundy-Paine is set to play the child of Keanu Reeves’ Ted ‘Theodore’ Logan, while Weaving will play the child of Alex Winter’s Bill S Preston.
That’s right… Bill and Ted are DADS.
In a statement, producer Scott Kroopf said: “When we saw Samara and Brigette together, it was like deja vu. It was exactly the way we felt when we first saw Keanu and Alex. We are so thrilled to have this funny and unique pair join the Bill And Ted team!”
Lundy-Paine is best known for her role as Casey Gardner in Netflix series Atypical and her work with improvisational voice band Subtle Pride, while Weaving is best known for playing Bee in The Babysitter, Penelope in Three Billboards Outside Missouri and Nelson Rose in SMILF.
The pair are set to join their middle-aged dads as they set out on a new adventure following a visit from someone from the future that tells them that their song can save a life and bring harmony to the universe.
The film, which will be the third instalment in the Bill & Ted saga, is being directed by Dean Parisot from a screenplay by Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon. Scott Kroopf is production alongside Alex Lebovici and Steve Ponce for Hammerstone Studios, and Steven Soderbergh is serving as an executive producer with John Ryan Jr, Scott Fischer and John Santilli.
