The first movie, 30 years ago, would become a cult classic. Now MGM have announce that Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter will reprise their roles in the third installment of their ‘adventures.’
‘Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure‘ was released in 1989. Given it’s low budget, it would become a fair-sized commercial success. The new movie, ‘Bill & Ted Face the Music,‘ now in production, will be directed by Dean Parisot from a script by original screenwriters Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon. Reeves and Winter will reprise their characters for the first time since the 1991 sequel ‘Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey.’
Here is the official synopsis for the film:
“When we last met Bill and Ted they were time-traveling teenagers trying to pass history class and win the battle of the bands. Once prophesized to save the universe with their rock and roll, middle age and the responsibilities of family have caught up with these two best friends who have not yet fulfilled their destiny.
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, Bill and Ted find much, much more than just a song.”
There is no official word yet on when the third film will arrive.
