Bill & Ted Face the Music pushed back two weeks
With a recent spike of outbreaks across the country, multiple films are pushing their release dates once again and after Warner Bros’ decision to push Tenet, Orion Pictures is following suit and delaying Bill & Ted Face the Music by two weeks, according to Variety.
The long-awaited threequel was originally set to hit theaters on August 14, but with Christopher Nolan’s mysterious new blockbuster being moved to the same date, MGM and Orion has chosen to push back the Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter-led sci-fi comedy to avoid competition with it.
Bill & Ted Face the Music centers on Bill S. Preston (Winter) and Ted “Theodore” Logan (Reeves), who are now fathers and have yet to fulfill their rock ‘n’ roll destinies. Their lives change when they are visited by a messenger from the future who warns them that only their song can save life as we know it.
Joining Winter and Reeves are Samara Weaving (Ready or Not) and Brigette Lundy-Paine (Atypical) as Bill and Ted’s daughters, respectively. The film will also feature Anthony Carrigan (Barry), Jillian Bell (Workaholics), Kristen Schall (Toy Story 4), Holland Taylor (Gloria Bell), Kid Cudi, Erinn Hayes, Jayma Mays, and Beck Bennet. William Sadler is also set to reprise his role as Death alongside franchise returners Amy Stoch and Hal London Jr. Newcomer.
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) directing. 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.
