Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter Announce the Bill & Ted 3 Release Date!

-

Hammerstone Studios announced today that production is set to begin this summer on Bill & Ted Face the Music, with Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter reprising their roles as the eponymous duo. Orion Pictures has also set the Bill & Ted 3 release date for August 21, 2020. The film will be distributed by United Artists Releasing.

With an overwhelming response and fandom surrounding the cult classic, the original team, along with some new faces is set to make their most triumphant comeback for the long anticipated third installment.

The time-travelling buddy comedy, shooting in New Orleans, will be directed by Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest, Red 2, Fun With Dick and Jane), from a screenplay by returning franchise writers Chris Matheson (Imagine That, A Goofy Movie) and Ed Solomon (Men in Black, Now You See Me, Mosaic).

Bill & Ted Face the Music will be produced by Scott Kroopf (Limitless) alongside Alex Lebovici and Steve Ponce on behalf of Hammerstone Studios. Steven Soderbergh will be executive producing along with John Ryan Jr., Scott Fischer and John Santilli. Production legal will be handled by Rosen Stapleton Law Group.

Following 1989’s Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and 1991’s Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, the stakes are higher than ever for William “Bill” S. Preston Esq. (Winter) and Theodore “Ted” Logan (Reeves). Yet to fulfill their rock and roll destiny, the now middle-aged best friends set out on a new adventure, when a visitor from the future warns them that only their song can save life as we know it and bring harmony to the universe. Along the way, they will be helped by their families, old friends and a few music legends.

The previous Bill & Ted films were celebrated box office successes, becoming cultural touch points for a generation and garnering a rabid cult following in the process. The third installment marks the first time in 30 years that the duo will be seen in a new adventure.
