The long-awaited third Bill & Ted film has been confirmed. With the original film's writers Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon on board and Winter and Reeves' enthusiastic participation, there's no reason to suggest that Bill and Ted 3 will be any different. Now, besties Bill and Ted will be seen as middle-aged men still trying to pen the greatest song ever written. But a visitor from the future warns Bill and Ted that only their song will save the world and bring harmony to the universe. A mysterious threat will cause then to go on another time travel adventure to save the universe, this time joined by "their daughters, a new crop of historical figures, and some sympathetic music legends".
"We have a script that we really are proud of, that we worked very hard on, that we've done many iterations of - and we did it on spec, meaning we spent years working on it because we wanted to get it right, creatively".
We're not sure who we need to contact, but we'd like to take this moment to humbly request that the Mean Jeans be involved with this movie in one way or another. Since Orion Pictures is defunct, MGM now owns the rights to Bill & Ted. Steven Soderbergh, Scott Fischer, John Ryan Jr., and John Santilli are attached as executive producers.
The project has long seemed a pipe dream, with Reeves and Winter talking candidly over the years about the obstacles facing Bill & Ted 3. The film is now in pre-production. To secure this future, George Carlin's sage-like Rufus is sent back in time from the 27th century to help Bill and Ted pass their high school history report, sending the two easygoing dudes on an unprecedented expedition through history. The third film follows Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure released in 1989 and Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey which hit theaters in 1991.
It also spawned two spin-off TV series, a comic and video games. Studios, who have published a number of miniseries on and off for the last few years.
