We’re getting more totally excellent details on a potential third Bill & Ted movie, Bill & Ted Face the Music. Following Digital Spy’s interview with original writer Ed Solomon, comes with the news that William Sadler, who played the Grim Reaper in 1991’s Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, is “keeping [his] bony white fingers crossed” for a third outing.
Sadler, who stole the sequel with his parody of Ingmar Bergman’s classic The Seventh Seal, as he played Battleships with Bill (Alex Winter) and Ted (Keanu Reeves), replied to Ed Solomon’s endorsement of the Digital Spy article with the following tweet.

Solomon responded by confirming that Death was indeed a part of the script they’d written.
Bill CRUSHED it as Death. And we laughed a lot writing him in BT3 – so let’s hope it’s something that happens

We’re really trying not to get our hopes up with this one, but the recent flurry of news has us playing air guitar in celebration. Maybe it’ll take a Netflix intervention to turn this nostalgic wish fulfilment into a most totally excellent reality.
