Since the announcement back in May that Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter will return to play as the rock n’ roll time travelers in Bill and Ted Face the Music, there hasn’t been much development with the project and it has remained in the pre-production stage. Earlier in July, Reeves also stated that the project was facing problems which delayed it from going forward with its production.
This November, fans got their first confirmation that the project is still happening when writer Ed Solomon, who also wrote the first two movies with Chris Matheson tweeted out an auction to raise funds by offering any individual an opportunity to bag a walk-on role on Bill and Ted Face the Music.
Now, the recent listings report from Production Weekly has revealed that Bill and Ted Face the Music is expected to be filmed in Los Angeles, Tempe & Phoenix, AZ.
The project does not have a production start date yet but earlier in November, Winter told THR that the project will start rolling cameras in early 2019.
“Well, we’re in pre-prep and are set to shoot in early 2019,” said Winter. “So right now, all systems are go. My old line when Blockbuster was in business was that I’d never believe a film was a go until the video was at Blockbuster. But I don’t know what to say anymore…Netflix?”
Bill and Ted Face the Music will be directed by Dean Parisot from a script penned by Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon. Scott Kroompf is set to produce alongside Alex Lebovici and Steve Ponce of Hammerstone Studios. Steven Soderbergh will serve as an executive producer with Scott Fischer, John Ryan Jr., and John Santilli.
Since the rights to the movie are owned by MGM, the studio will be releasing the threequel in the U.S. and Canada under their Orion Pictures banner. And Bloom will be handling international sales.
Bill and Ted Face the Music does not have a release date assigned yet.
