‘Automatons’: The Stop-Motion Animated Comedy From the ‘Bill and Ted’ Screenwriters May Find New Life, Ed Solomon Says

Let’s time travel back to 2004. Bill & Ted writers Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson were working on the stop-motion animated Automatons, a wildly absurd comedy about a pair of neurotic robots who were built to kill Hitler, only to be buried at the bottom of the ocean and emerge 70 years too late. It was the kind of project that would have difficulty being greenlit even coming from the writers of Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and its sequel Bogus Journey, much less coming 13 years after Bogus Jo...

Living in Translation.

Aruni Kashyap (quoted here in 2017 on the difficulty of translation) has a wonderful essay in Catapult, “Living in Translation, or Why I Love Daffodils, an Unpopular Postcolonial Flower”; it’s one of those that can’t be summarized, so I’ll toss a few chunks out there and hope you rise to the bait: Unlike many of my other schoolmates, I didn’t speak English at home. My father grew up poor in a village where the only English words used were the ones that had percolated deep into the Indian languag...

‘Bill and Ted Face The Music’ Writers Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson Look on Their Excellent Adventure, Scenes That Didn’t Make It, and More [Interview]

If Chris Matheson could go back to 1987 when he and Ed Solomon were first writing the screenplay for Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, he would tell himself, “Don’t write that gay joke.” Even while trying to seriously ponder what he would tell his 26-year-old self, Matheson can’t help but crack a joke, which pretty much embodies the tone of the good-hearted sci-fi comedy Bill and Ted Face the Music.
