New story details have come to light on the third Bill and Ted adventure; Bill and Ted Face the Music from the mouth of co-writer, Ed Soloman.
In a recent interview with Collider, Soloman revealed the boys, now middle-aged men, go on a quest to find out exactly why they haven’t turned out the “greatest people who ever lived” and try to rectify that.
“Bill and Ted were told at 16 that they were going to be the greatest people who ever lived. That they were gonna write a song that is going to save the world, and it hasn’t happened. And now they are middle-aged men. They’ve got wives who used to be princesses in medieval England who are now working double shifts at Denny’s, they’ve got teenagers that are about to leave home, money is tight, and they’ve been chasing this dream, writing song after song, when somebody from the future shows up and says, “You have 24 hours. The fate of all of space/time depends on it – and if it doesn’t happen now, it’s never gonna happen.”
“Bill and Ted are confused because they know they had to have written it because after all the people in the future told them they did.. so they just must not have written it yet. So in their desperation, they decide their only option is to go into the future – to when they have written it – and to steal it from themselves”.

As yet, Soloman isn’t quite sure when production will start on the project but is hopeful the Keanu Reeves will return after his stint filming John Wick 3 is over.
“Our hope is to go into production after Keanu finishes John Wick 3. We don’t have a specific start date yet, but I think we’re probably looking at later this year.”
After almost 30 years after the original was first released, the third instalment has been a long time coming for fans. Much talked about over the years, the next excellent adventure has been toyed with, with no fruitful outcome. Let’s hope this one finally gets off the ground.
