After close to three decades of rumour and speculation, it was finally confirmed last month that Keanu Reeves’ Ted “Theodore” Logan and Alex Winter’s Bill S. Preston Esq. are set to reunite for another excellent adventure in the long-awaited threequel Bill & Ted Face the Music.
According to Omega Underground, a production start date of January 10th 2019 has been set for the movie, which has been scripted by original Bill & Ted creators Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon and has Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest) set to direct.
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. 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.”
As yet, there’s no word on a release date for Bill & Ted Face the Music, but if filming does begin in January we can presumably expect it to arrive on screens before the end of next year.
