If you have been ready for that third Bill & Ted film, then 2019 stands out as the yr the place you get probably the greatest Christmas presents ever!
That’s as a result of Bill & Ted Face the Music could the truth is be launched in time for the Christmas 2019 film rush. That potential (deliberate?) launched date was revealed by filmmaker Steven Soderbergh, who’s government producing the long-awaited threequel.
Soderbergh was out selling his new movie High Flying Bird on the annual Slamdance movie competition, which is held proper subsequent to the currently-running Sundance movie competition in Park City, Utah. CNET bought a probability to talk to Soderbergh, and got here away with phrase that the script for Bill & Ted Face the Music is “hilarious,” and that we may even see the movie ahead of we predict:
“Soderbergh also speculated Bill and Ted Face the Music could be released at Christmas, maybe. “That’d be a good Christmas current,” he said.”
If that seems to be true, it could certainly be a good Christmas current – and a good enhance for Keanu Reeves’ 2019 earnings; the actor can also be placing out one other massive threequel this yr: the culminating chapter of his hit motion franchise, John Wick. Keanu may even assist form a main quadrilogy, by lending his voice to Toy Story four this yr.
Bill & Ted three was anticipated to begin filming on January 10th in line with earlier reviews, with Galaxy Quest director Dean Parisot on the helm, and a new script by sequence writers Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon. Franchise stars Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves are each coming again to reprise their roles as Bill S. Preston and Ted ‘Theodore’ Logan (respectively), in a storyline that may see their characters nonetheless awaiting a grand future and rock glory, whilst middle-aged dads:
“Two would-be rockers from San Dimas, California, were once told they’d save the universe during a time-traveling adventure, but find themselves as middle-aged dads still trying to crank out a hit song and fulfill their destiny.”
The position of Bill and Ted’s mentor Rufus (performed by the late George Carlin) will not be recast for the brand new movie, however different fan-favs like The Grim Reaper (Power‘s William Sadler) are honest sport to pop up in cameos. Winter and Reeves launched a assertion about Bill & Ted three, sharing their excessive hopes and pleasure when the sequel lastly gained sufficient momentum to roll into manufacturing:
“We couldn’t be more excited to get the whole band back together again,” Reeves and Winter mentioned in a assertion. “Chris and Ed wrote an amazing script, and with Dean at the helm we’ve got a dream team!”
Given the comparatively low calls for (and presumed low price) of this specific manufacturing, getting Bill and Ted Face the Music into theaters by Christmas 2019 is unquestionably doable. The query could also be whether or not that is actually the type of movie to throw into the center of a vacation season film rush – or one to presumably wager on as a darkish horse hit within the far more barren battlefield of early January 2020 (our greatest wager).
Bill & Ted Face the Music could also be in theaters this Christmas. Or not.
