Whoa! After years of rumours and false starts, the eagerly awaited sequel to the cult sci-fi comedies Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey is at long last officially a ‘Go Picture’!
Revealed earlier today by the Wyld Stallyns duo themselves, Bill & Ted Face the Music will begin production this summer, with August 21st, 2020 pencilled in as the release date.
As previously reported, Galaxy Quest’s Dean Parisot will helm, with a script by original creators Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon.
Actors reprising iconic roles several decades later can sometimes be disconcerting for some audiences, and considering Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves haven’t played Bill S. Preston and Ted 'Theodore' Logan in a whopping 29 years, there’s certainly a little risk here. Harrison Ford only had a 21 year break between Indy adventures, with Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels taking 20 years to reprise their once loveable idiot personas Lloyd and Harry in Dumb and Dumber To. Let's hope this project doesn't suffer the same fate reception-wise!
Watch on for the announcement from Reeves and Winter themselves, and stay tuned to STARBURST for plenty more coverage of Face the Music as it develops…
