It’s official, Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter are set to reprise their iconic roles as time-travellers Ted Theodore Logan and Bill S. Preston Esq. in a third film in the “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure” film series – one which lists Steven Soderbergh as an executive producer.
Titled “Bill & Ted Face the Music,” original creators Chris Matheson (“Imagine That”) and Ed Solomon (“Men in Black”) have penned the script while Dean Parisot (“Galaxy Quest,” “Red 2”) is confirmed to direct. Scott Kroopf, Alex Lebovici and Steve Ponce will produce while Soderbergh, Scott Fischer, John Ryan Jr. and John Santilli will executive produce.
In the new film the duo are long past their days as time-travelling teenagers and now weighed down by middle age and family commitments. Despite many attempts, they’ve yet to write a good song let alone the greatest ever written.
With the fabric of time and space tearing around them, a visitor from the future warns only their song can save life as we know it. They set out on a time travel adventure to find it, with the help of their daughters, historical figures, and sympathetic music legends.
MGM owns the rights to the film and will release it in the U.S. under its Orion Pictures banner. Bloom is handling international sales, which began in Cannes this week. The film is currently in pre-production.
