We know that Bill & Ted 3 is coming to theaters Summer 2020, and now we know that filming on the long-awaited sequel begins today!
The official Bill & Ted movie Twitter page posted last night that “We begin filming tomorrow, dude!”, while franchise co-screenwriter Ed Solomon posted to his account, “Monday. Crew call: 7:30. First shot: 9:00.” This morning, Solomon posted the words “Party On” with a photo of a sign showing the way to the set.
Now that we know that Bill & Ted 3: Face the Music is coming Summer 2020 with stars Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves reprising their respective title roles, everyone is wondering what other familiar faces will be returning and how the filmmakers will address, if at all, the absence of the late George Carlin.
Today, the official Bill & Ted Twitter account confirmed that William Sadler, the actor who played the Grim Reaper in the second movie, 1991’s Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, will be reprising his role for the new film.
We’ve been hearing whispers about a Bill & Ted 3 for many years now (and long before that). But today, it’s been made official.
Nearly three decades after the 1989 original, Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, and its 1991 sequel, Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, it’s been confirmed that a third movie titled Bill & Ted Face the Music is finally happening, and that Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter will both be returning to reprise their roles as the title characters.
Keanu Reeves is current out doing a press tour to discuss his upcoming film 47 Ronin, but in an interview Monday morning with Today the conversation turned to the role that brought his name to prominence, Ted “Theodore” Logan, and what might be next for Ted and his best friend, Bill S. Preston, Esq. (Alex Winter) in the long-rumored Bill & Ted 3.
Reeves talked candidly about the role and the characters, and provided some very promising news for those hoping for a third Bill & Ted time-traveling adventure with.
