We have some most excellent news to share with you: Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves have announced they will begin shooting Bill & Ted 3 this summer. And the would-be rock ‘n’ roll saviors will have a lot to answer for after never actually making the music that saves the world.
Rumblings of a third film in the franchise have been happening for a few years, and earlier this year those reports turned into a roar. Now the millions of people who only want to be excellent to each other can once again sing in unison about their dream for a better future, because life just got a lot less bogus after Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves announced in a video they expect to start filming the next Bill & Ted movie, titled Bill & Ted Face the Music, this summer.
In a short video in front of the Hollywood Bowl, the pair, who last rocked out together as the well-meaning, musically inept goofballs in 1991’s Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, thanked fans for making the much-hoped for film a reality. The video ends with a note about the release date; Face the Music will arrive to theaters on August 21, 2020.
