Okay, so here’s a movie that sounds like it’s going to happen. While nothing is ever a sure thing in Hollywood, Bill and Ted Face the Music (the next film in the long-dormant franchise) actually sounds like it’s going to happen.
According to Deadline, stars Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter — who first took on the iconic roles 27 some-odd years back — have officially signed on to this third long-gestating threequel. In fact, the movie is already in preproduction, though there is no word yet on when we can expect this thing to go in front of cameras.
If that wasn’t enough for you, the franchise’s creators Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon have also penned the script for the film, and on board to direct the movie is Galaxy Quest‘s Dean Parisot. Given how well Parisot has been able to create films with loving nods to the past, this sounds like it could be the perfect fit.

“We couldn’t be more excited to get the whole band back together again,” Reeves and Winter told the outlet. “Chris and Ed wrote an amazing script, and with Dean at the helm we’ve got a dream team!”
Here’s how Bill and Ted Face the Music is being described:
“When we last picked up with the most audacious dudes 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, according to the production the new movie will see the two best friends as middle-aged men with family responsibilities who have yet to fulfill 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 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.”
What do you think about this film becoming more and more of a reality? While I’m usually hesitant about reboots like this, the premise is as such that I wouldn’t be against seeing how it pans out. If nothing else, it looks like it could be a touching film. Let us know your own thoughts down below!
