Bill & Ted 3 Is Officially Happening
Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter have today confirmed that Bill & Ted will get another movie with the name ‘Bill & Ted Face the Music’
The great news for fans of the franchise is original creators Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon have penned the script with Dean Parisot hired as the director. The film will be produced by Scott Kroopf who has previously worked on Limitless and alongside him will be Alex Lebovici, Steve Ponce and Steven Soderbergh acting as Executive producer.
“We couldn’t be more excited to get the whole band back together again. Chris and Ed wrote an amazing script, and with Dean at the helm, we’ve got a dream team!”
For those of you who have no idea who Bill & Ted are then I suggest you go find the two original films and have yourself a Bill & Ted night in. The original film saw the pair travel through time collecting a squad of historical figures for their history project. The second film saw a pair of evil androids who look like Bill & Ted being sent back in time to eliminate the real ones. (The second being a personal favourite of mine).
Back in 2017 Keanu Reeves gave an update on the synopsis of the third installment:
Basically, they’re supposed to write a song to save the world and they haven’t done that. The pressure of having to save the world, their marriages are falling apart, their kids are kind of mad at them, and then someone comes from the future and tells them if they don’t write the song it’s not just the world, it’s the universe. So they have to save the universe because time is breaking apart.
The film is currently in pre-production so its still a fair way off. Almost 30 years have passed since the original film was released and I personally can’t wait for the new one. In the meantime Keanu Reeves will be finishing up John Wick 3 which has recently started production. We will keep updated as more information becomes available.
