Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter will reunite to star in Bill & Ted Face The Music - 27 years since the second instalment of the series.
Winter tweeted confirmation they would reprise their roles in the third film as "Ted" Theodore Logan and "Bill" S.Preston Esq - two time-travelling metalheads - posting: "We're tuning the air guitars. £BT3"
"We couldn't be more excited to get the whole band back together again," Reeves and Winter told The Hollywood Reporter. "Chris and Ed wrote an amazing script, and with Dean at the helm we've got a dream team!" Producers announced the new sequel at the Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday. Bill & Ted Face The Music will see the duo dealing as middle-aged men with families who have written several songs, but still have yet to pen the greatest song ever written.
They get a visitor from the future who says their song will save life as they know it. Craving inspiration, Bill and Ted go on a time travel adventure again to find a song that will balance the world again. Bill & Ted 3 will be produced by Scott Kroopf (Limitless), along with Alex Lebovici and Steve Ponce of Hammerstone Studios. MGM's Orion Pictures is set to release the film in the US. Last year, Reeves told BBC talk show host Graham Norton that the film was written and the duo was "supposed to write a song to save the world and they haven't done that. The pressure of having to save the world, their marriages are falling apart, their kids are kind of mad at them, and then someone comes from the future and tells them if they don’t write the song it’s just not the world, it’s the universe."
There is no release date for the film, which is currently in pre-production.
