After literally decades of rumors, Bill & Ted 3 is finally in the works.
The original two Bill & Ted movies are cult classics, combining stoner comedy with surprisingly accurate time travel physics. For the past 27 years, fans have hoped for a third installment. It often comes up during interviews with Keanu Reeves, but until recently, the idea of a threquel seemed pretty unlikely. Then earlier this year, Reeves and his co-star Alex Winter confirmed that Bill & Ted 3 was a real possibility.
Announced at the Cannes Film Festival this week, the sequel is called Bill & Ted Face the Music. Reeves and Winter will obviously reprise their roles, now joined by Bill and Ted’s daughters. Here’s Deadline‘s take on the film’s plot:
“The new movie will see the two best friends as middle-aged men with family responsibilities who have yet to fulfill their destiny. They’ve written thousands of tunes, but they have yet to write a good one, much less the greatest song ever. With the fabric of time and space tearing around them, a visitor from the future warns the duo that only their music can save life as we know it.”
In other words, exactly the kind of story you’d expect from a Bill & Ted movie. The first film introduced Bill and Ted as unlikely messiahs to a futuristic society, destined to write a song that would change human history. So, no pressure, then.
Original screenwriters Chris Matheson (Imagine That) and Ed Solomon (Men in Black) are writing the script, with Galaxy Quest‘s Dean Parisot directing. So while we tend to be a little doubtful about nostalgic revivals this long after the original movie, fans have reason to be optimistic.
With Keanu Reeves currently filming John Wick Chapter 3, Bill & Ted Face the Music is in pre-production, suggesting a potential release date in 2020.
