‘Bill & Ted 3’ To Start Filming on January 10th

Project Casting

Get ready for another excellent adventure, because filming for the upcoming third movie in the Bill & Ted franchise is set to begin.

Filming on Bill & Ted Face the Music will start on January 10, 2019, according to a new report.

The production start date is the latest benchmark in the ongoing saga for the third movie in the series after stars Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves campaigned with screenwriters and creators Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson to kickstart progress on the new film. Dean Parisot has signed on to direct, having previously helmed the movies Galaxy Quest and Red 2. 

“We couldn’t be more excited to get the whole band back together again,” Reeves and Winter said in a statement. “Chris and Ed wrote an amazing script, and with Dean, at the helm, we’ve got a dream team!”

Reeves is currently filming John Wick: Chapter 3.

Co-writer Solomon previously spoke about how efforts to get the new film off the ground have mirrored the plans for Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, the first movie in the franchise.

“The whole trajectory of getting the next one off the ground has been pretty much exactly like the experience of getting the original,” Winter told EW. “Going to every studio, and they’re like, ‘What the eff is this?’ It’s this kind of independent spirit, and the films have an anachronistic quality to them that’s a big part of what they are, fundamentally. I’m really happy that this one is the same. It doesn’t feel like some stale knockoff that a studio would have immediately gone, ‘Oh, this feels right. We have rebranded very successfully.'”

There’s no word yet on when the film will premiere in theaters.
