The film also stars Alice Eve and Thomas Middleditch and is directed by Jeffrey Nachmanoff, formerly better known on a producer/scriptwriter on such TV shows as Legends and Chicago Fire, as well as co-scriptwriter on the Roland Emmerich disaster flick The Day After Tomorrow.

The film is expected to be released next year.

When the project was announced, Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson were said to be writing the script for Galaxy Quest and RED 2 director Dean Parisot.

But things went a bit quiet after that, with only the occasional comment from Reeves or Winter fanning the flames of fan hype. Keanu Reeves all but confirmed that a third installment of Bill & Ted is happening and will be titled Bill & Ted: Face The Music.

“We’re trying. There’s a script out there”.

In this era of remakes, reboots, and long-awaited sequels, another forgotten franchise is just about set to rise from the ashes of development hell. The John Wick series has afforded the actor a new-found cool that seemed to be denied to him in his early days, when critics would continuously (and often needlessly) harp on his sometimes wooden acting. They’re supposed to save the world.

We can expect to see Replicas arrive sometime in 2018. And they’re playing to nobody.

This certainly sounds like a fun angle for the film to explore.
