Whoa! Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter apparently are quite serious about revisiting their classic Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure characters, with news surfacing that the long-rumored third film now has a director.

Galaxy Quest director Dean Parisot is attached to direct the threequel, according to Vulture, with a new script from original Bill & Ted creators Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson. No word yet on what the plot revolves around, but it is said to be a continuation as opposed to a reboot, and surely it will involve time travel and have a moment of reverence for the dearly departed George Carlin, who played Bill and Ted's futuristic mentor, Rufus. And, of course, the texting generation will have to be introduced to the concept of a "phone booth."
