Wednesday's Most Excellent News Bits - With Double Keanu

And in bits of news and stuff not worthy of a full story all to themselves today – Bill and Ted’s third adventure in time and dumb is now DEFINITELY happening! Yes, we know it’s been on the go for decades now, but it is finally officially a go, with original writers Chris Matheson and Ed Solomons having penned the script and Dean Parisot on board to direct. Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter will now be the middle aged Ted Theodore Logan and Bill S.

He’s wrong, by the way…And speaking of sequels, at least this one seems to be expanding the brand, as the title suggests – The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard. Reynolds and Jackson on board – her indoors to be named later…And just in case you thought this summer movie season was going a bit shark-lite with only The Meg on offer – here’s a poster for the upcoming Great White Enjoy -
