BILL AND TED 3 Is Officially Happening With Keanu Reeves And Alex Winter Reprising Their Roles
here have been rumors of a third Bill and Ted movie for quite some time, but now it’s been officially confirmed that Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter will reunite for another adventure almost 30 years after the first film was released.
According to the press release, original creators Chris Matheson (Imagine That) and Ed Solomon (Men in Black, Mosaic, Now You See Me) have written the script, while Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest, Red 2, Fun With Dick and Jane) has been confirmed to direct. Scott Kroopf (Limitless) will produce together with Alex Lebovici and Steve Ponce of Hammerstone Studios, with Steven Soderbergh serving as an EP alongside Scott Fischer, John Ryan Jr. and John Santilli.
“We couldn’t be more excited to get the whole band back together again,” said Reeves and Winter. “Chris and Ed wrote an amazing script, and with Dean at the helm we’ve got a dream team!”
In addition to this bodacious news, we have a synopsis which provides us with a great outline of the plot:
“Bill & Ted Face the Music will see the duo long past their days as time-traveling teenagers and now weighed down by middle age and the responsibilities of family. They’ve written thousands of tunes, but they have yet to write a good one, much less the greatest song ever written. With the fabric of time and space tearing around them, a visitor from the future warns our heroes that only their song can save life as we know it. Out of luck and fresh out of inspiration, Bill and Ted set out on a time travel adventure to seek the song that will set their world right and bring harmony in the universe as we know it. Together with the aid of their daughters, a new crop of historical figures, and some sympathetic music legends, they find much, much more than just a song.”
If you’re not familiar with Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure or Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey we suggest you seek them out, as they really have stood the test of time.
Bill and Ted Face the Music doesn’t have a release date yet, but we’ll keep you guys updated.
