While earlier this month we received word on who’ll be playing the respective daughters of Bill and Ted in Bill & Ted Face the Music, we now have word on who’ll be the big bad of the picture.
Via The Hollywood Reporter, Anthony Carrigan has signed on to play the villain of this threequel, although no details whatsoever have been revealed about said villain just yet. Carrigan is likely best known to genre fans as Victor Zsasz in Gotham, while he’s also featured in the likes of Barry and The Forgotten.
In Bill & Ted 3, Carrigan will be joining the returning Alex Winter, Keanu Reeves and William Sadler, in addition to Mayhem’s Samara Weaving as Bill’s daughter Thea and Atypical’s Brigette Lundy-Paine as Ted’s daughter Billie.
The early blurb on Bill & Ted Face the Music reads:
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. and Theodore “Ted” Logan. Yet to fulfil 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.
With Galaxy Quest’s Dean Parisot on directing duties, from a screenplay courtesy of the original two movies’ Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon, Bill & Ted Face the Music is booked in for an August 2020 release.
