Variety's Jeff Sneider broke the news that Hugh Laurie has dropped out from talks for the role of OmniCorp's CEO in the Jose Padilha-directed Robocop remake on Twitter last night, but he has another nugget in his Twitter stream.

He writes that Bill & Ted 3, also at MGM, is rumored to be tentatively titled Bill & Ted Face the Music, which kind of fits given the theme of the movie.

As previously reported, Galaxy Quest's Dean Parisot has come on board to direct Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter in second sequel to their 1989 comedy Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure. He will work with a script written by series creators Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson.

Since Parisot is busy prepping Red 2 and is attached to direct Walden Media's thriller Atlantis 7 afterwards, we may not see the third Bill & Ted in theaters until 2014, at the earliest.

In the third movie, Bill and Ted are given the task of having to write a song that can change the world, but as the slackers that they are, they keep putting that off. The pair falls into a funk and loses their ability to rock. They will somehow end up traveling forward in time to ask their future selves about that song and is given a variety of different answers.

William Sadler, who plays the Grim Reaper, may also return for the third movie.

According to sources, the budget for the third movie may be in the $35-$50 million range.
