News: Bill & Ted 3 Officially Confirmed

Most Excellent! Ted “Theodore” Logan and Bill S. Preston Esq. are heading back to the big screen! Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter are officially confirmed to reprise their roles in a third Bill & Ted movie. It is titled Bill & Ted Face The Music and is expected to be one of the hottest properties at Cannes.

It is currently in pre-production and the script was written by the franchise’s original creators Chris Matheson (Imagine That) and Ed Solomon (Men in Black), with Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest) directing. Scott Kroopf (Limitless) will produce along with Alex Lebovici and Steve Ponce of Hammerstone Studios, with Steven Soderbergh serving as an executive producer alongside Scott Fischer, John Ryan Jr., and John Santilli.

According to the production, part three will see the two best friends as middle-aged men who now have family responsibilities and have yet to fulfill their destiny of writing the greatest song ever written. 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. Out of luck and inspiration, Bill and Ted set out on another time travel adventure — with the help of their daughters, a new crop of historical figures, and some sympathetic music legends — to seek the song that will set their world right and bring harmony in the universe as we know it.

MGM owns the rights and will release in the U.S. under their Orion Pictures banner, while Bloom is handling international sales. Winter and Reeves said that:

 “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!”
