It's official: Bill and Ted are Coming Back!
Rumours have been swirling recently about a reboot of the popular comedy franchise, but now it's been confirmed.  Last week, at the Cannes Film Festival, Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter announced that they will be re-uniting once again on the big screen in "Bill & Ted Face the Music".

This time, the pair are older (perhaps wiser?) and are still yet to fulfil their destiny; this time their daughters will be joining their time travel adventures...Excellent! 
The movie is in pre-production so it's still early days, but stay tuned for more updates!
