After years of rumors, sperculations, and wishful thinking, it looks as though Bill & Ted Face the Music, the third film in the Bill & Ted franchise, will finally be going into production this summer. In the below video released today, stars Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves announced that they will begin production on the long awaited sequel, with an August. 21, 2020 release date. The film, written by original Bill & Ted writers Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon, will shoot in New Orleans and will be directed by Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest).
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 as we know it. 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.
