It’s hard to believe, but 27 years after their ‘Bogus Journey,’ the dimwitted duo of William “Bill” S. Preston Esq. and Theodore “Ted” Theodore Logan is coming back for one more time-traveling adventure. It was just announced that Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter are returning to their legendary ’80s roles for “Bill & Ted Face the Music.”
The long-awaited third film in the ‘Bill & Ted’ franchise tells the story of middle-aged friends, who were once prophesized to save the universe, but have yet to fulfill their destiny. Now, much older and with families of their own, Bill and Ted must reunite, and travel through time to find the magical song that will bring harmony to the universe, after a visitor from the future warns that the only Bill and Ted’s music can save the day. Together, with the help of their daughters (aka potential stars of the sequels) and a new crop of historical figures, Bill and Ted find much more than just a song.

“Bill & Ted Face the Music” is written by series creators Chris Matheson (“Imagine That”) and Ed Solomon (“Men in Black” and “Now You See Me”). “Galaxy Quest” director Dean Parisot has signed on to helm the film. And interestingly enough, one of the executive producers on the project is none other than Steven Soderbergh.
Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves had this to say about the sequel, “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!”
No word yet on a release date, but the film is currently in pre-production and will be released by MGM Orion Pictures. International sales will be conducted at the Cannes Film Festival.
Oh, and as always, be excellent to each other!
