'Bill & Ted' actors Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter reunited and have revealed that a third film might be in the works. Excellent.
Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure was released in 1989, with Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey followed in 1991, despite both films being popular and a bunch of rumours swirling for years, the world has yet to be gifted with a third.
However, in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, the pair were joined by Bill & Ted writers Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon, and the chances of a third film were discussed and it was revealed that a script titled Bill & Ted Face the Music has been made.
Solomon said: "We are hoping to close a deal with some financiers. Hopefully within the next month or so, we'll have news that will stick."
He went on to say that as well as Reeve and Winter, Bill Sadler - who played Death - will also be making a return. He also announced that Steven Soderbergh and Scott Kroopf will producing and Dean Pariscot will direct.
Talking about trying to get the third film made, Winter told Entertainment Weekly: "The whole trajectory of getting the next one off the ground has been pretty much exactly like the experience of getting the original.
"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.'"

Revealing more about plot details, Matheson said it focus on where the duo are in their lives now: "You're told you're gonna save the world. And now you're 50 and you haven't done it. Now they're married, and it affects their marriages, and it affects their relationships with their kids, and it affects their everything."
Reeves also spoke about his keenness to get involved, telling the news outlet: "I love the characters so much - who they are, the spirit of their voice that Chris and Ed have given them."
