The story will reportedly catch up the characters in middle-age, burdened by family responsibilities and still having failed to write the greatest song ever, until a visitor from the future arrives and tells them that fate of the world depends on them writing that song.

Then, in 1991's equally excellent follow-up Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey, Joss Ackland's future despot De Nomolos sends evil robot clones back in time to kill our heroes and take over their lives, forcing Bill & Ted to traverse the afterlife in the company of William Sadler's Grim Reaper and a pair of martians called Station.

The third movie in the "Bill & Ted" franchise is now in pre-production, with a script written by original creators Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon.

The band is question, of course, is Wyld Stallyns, the group fronted by two time-traveling stoners whose music is prophesied one day to become the foundation of a Utopian society.

"We couldn't be more excited to get the whole band back together again", Keanu and Alex said in a statement.

Decades have passed, but the long-awaited news we've all been waiting for is finally coming true - there's a new Bill & Ted movie officially on the way. Steven Soderbergh, of all people, is an executive producer.

The project has long seemed a pipe dream, with Reeves and Winter talking candidly over the years about the obstacles facing Bill & Ted 3. MGM's Orion Pictures is releasing the film in the U.S.

Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure was an unexpected success.

'Along the way, they will be helped by their daughters, a new batch of historical figures, and a few music legends'.

Original creators Chris Matheson (Imagine That) and Ed Solomon (Men in Black, Mosaic, Now You See Me) have penned the script, which they have been teasing for several months. Evan Richards, Christopher Kennedy and Rick Overton replaced the original central trio, seemingly in preparation for the three playing the same roles in Fox's live-action Bill& Ted's Excellent Adventures show the following year. Other notable credits include: Matrix Trilogy, Point Break, Speed, Constantine and Devil's Advocate. Dean Parisot was also referenced by Reeves and Winters.
