‘Bill & Ted Face The Music’ first look reveals another character’s return
Orion Pictures is getting us stoked for Bill & Ted Face The Music, the new cinematic installment of our favorite every-dudes. Here are the first production stills for the movie, starring Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter.
As you can see, William Sadler has returned in his role as the Grim Reaper, while we also get a glimpse of newcomer Scott Mescudi, better known by his stage name, Kid Cudi.
This could very well be the best Bill & Ted picture yet. The world's coolest time travelers/BFFs are now middle-aged and have yet to achieve their rock 'n' roll destiny. When a visitor from the future warns them that only their jam can save the world, the duo set off on their next adventure. Fans should expect a new roll call of great figures from history, as well as some rock legends. The duo will be assisted in saving the planet by their daughters, played by Samara Weaving (Ash vs Evil Dead, Netflix’s The Babysitter), and Brigette Lundy-Paine (Netflix’s Atypical).
Plans for the film started as far back as 2010. A script was written by Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon, the writers of the other films in the trilogy (Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey), but the project needed studio backing and distribution. Bill & Ted Face The Music is slated for release August 21, 2020.
But come on, all good things come to those who wait. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Matheson says “They were told when they were teenagers that they were going to save reality, and they’ve been working on it the whole time.vNow, an emissary from the future comes and says, ‘You’ve got to do it right now. We’ve got literally 80 minutes or all of reality will come to an end.’”
Ask yourself if your favorite band would be up for that challenge. Or just enjoy the photos below.
