The recent news that a third Bill and Ted movie was now a certainty brought joy to the internet in ways I’ve rarely seen. I guess no one can deny the healing powers of rock ‘n’ roll or the cosmic exultation brought when listening to Wyld Stallyns! Today, there is even more cause to rejoice as it’s been officially announced that William Sadler is reprising his role as Death in the third film!
Released in 1991, Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey was the last time we saw the two stoner rockers Bill (Alex Winter) and Ted (Keanu Reeves). In that film, they were killed by evil robotic versions of themselves and they had to face Death (Sadler) in a series of games for their very souls.
Details are scarce about the new film, which will come – get ready for this – 29 years after its predecessor as the tentative release date is Summer 2020.
