Not since 1991’s Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey have we seen the iconic slacker duo of Bill S. Preston Esq. and Ted Logan together in a movie. However, it turns out that there will now be a third installment of the Bill & Ted series. Currently bearing the title Bill & Ted Face the Music, not only has it begun pre-production with Galaxy Quest director Dean Parisot and series creators Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon, both Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter will reprise their roles as Ted and Bill respectively.
Face the Music will revolve around the two leads going on a time travel adventure to find the song that will prevent the fabric of time and space from being torn apart. Reeves and Winter have been enthusiastic about returning to the series, saying that the movie has a dream team on both sides of the camera:
“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!”
Scott Kroopf, who produced Limitless, will produce the movie alongside Alex Lebovici and Steve Ponce of Hammerstone Studios. In addition, Steven Soderbergh will serve as one of the film’s executive producers, which includes Scott Fischer, John Ryan Jr., and John Santilli. The film will be released by MGM under its Orion Pictures banner.
