Now that Bill & Ted 3, which is currently going by the working title Bill & Ted Face the Music, is finally on the way officially with Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter returning to play the title roles and William Sadler even returning to play Death once again, it’s time for some fresh faces to join the party.
It’s being reported that Samara Weaving and Brigette Lundy-Paine have joined the cast of the long-awaited trilogy-maker, and that they’ll be playing Bill and Ted’s daughters.
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.
