bill and ted 3 production begins

After long years of rumors and failed talks, the Bill and Ted 3 production begins. Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter are bringing back the band in Bill & Ted Face the Music, which kicked off production with a gratitude and nostalgia-filled post from Winter, who praised writer Ed Solomon, the writer of the original Bill & Ted movies, for being the rock that holds the bodacious family together.

And speaking of family, Solomon also teased a few comparison shots of young Reeves and Winter with their daughters played by Samara Weaving and Brigette Lundy-Paine, who show an uncanny resemblance to the excellent duo.

bill and ted 3 script

Death becomes Bill and Ted 3 — but not in the way you expect. No, the movie is still alive and kickin’ and in development for now, though that much can’t be said for a certain Bill and Ted character set to return to the sequel. That’s right, it’s William Sadler as Death.

Bill and Ted screenwriter Ed Solomon has been steadily beating the drum for the Bill and Ted sequel, now titled Bill and Ted Face the Music. That includes teasing out details from his Bill and Ted 3 script and appealing to former Bill and Ted actors on Twitter to potentially return for the third film. And it looks like Sadler is more than game.

bill and ted original script pages

Nearly 30 years ago, Bill Preston and Ted Logan stepped into a time-traveling phone booth and wreaked havoc on history. But in the process, they taught us an important lesson: Be excellent to each other.

It’s a simple, jovial message from two pure-hearted lunkheads, one that has resonated in the decades since Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure became a cult classic. Original stars Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter have since moved on — Reeves to breaking the bones of assassins, Winter to his tech and political activism – but it’s always excellent to revisit the cult comedy. And the latest jaunt back in time comes courtesy of one of Bill and Ted’s creators himself, writer Ed Solomon.

Director Steven Soderbergh‘s latest experiment has arrived. After investigating different financing models for Logan Lucky earlier this year, the filmmaker has unveiled a new interactive project called Mosaic, which will be broadcast as a six-part limited series on HBO in January. But you don’t have to wait until then to see the story play out. Mosaic is also an interactive app that’s available to download for free right now; using branching narratives, users can choose which perspective to watch the story unfold, and dive back in and explore the narrative from different angles once the story is over to see what you missed.
