Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter announce Bill & Ted 3 for August 2020
After they introduced themselves as “Wyld Stallyns,” the two tag-teamed a message where they say thank you to the fans, because it looks like the long-awaited third installment, Bill & Ted Face the Music, will actually go into production this summer.
“It is all because of you guys, so we owe you a huge debt of gratitude,” said Winter, who ended the message with their rallying cry, “Be excellent to each other.”
Orion Pictures has set an August 21, 2020 release date for the film.
News of a third Bill & Ted film has been floating around for years. After Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, original creators Chris Matheson (Imagine That) and Ed Solomon (Men in Black, Now You See Me) have penned the script, with Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest, Fun with Dick and Jane) confirmed to direct. Scott Kroopf (Limitless) will produce together with Alex Lebovici and Steve Ponce of Hammerstone Studios, with Steven Soderbergh serving as an executive producer alongside Scott Fischer, John Ryan Jr., and John Santilli.
MGM owns the rights to the film and will release in the U.S. under their Orion Pictures banner.
