Yes way! Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter are finally, officially putting the Bill & Ted band back together.
After years of delays, Reeves (as Ted “Theodore” Logan ), 53, and Winter (Bill S. Preston Esq.) 52, have the green light to make Bill & Ted Face the Music — the third film in their metalhead slacker comedy franchise.
“We’re tuning the air guitars. #BT3,” Winter wrote on Twitter Tuesday, following a report from the Cannes Film Festival where BT3 is being shopped for international markets.
The duo started their time-traveling antics nearly 30 years ago with 1989’s Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, followed by 1991’s Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey.
Original screenwriters Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon have written the screenplay for Bill & Ted 3. Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest) is confirmed to direct. And William Sadler will return as Death, along with “a few delicious cameos by people to be named another time,” said Solomon.
The film is currently in preproduction and will most likely arrive in theaters sometime in 2019.
