Keanu Reeves has opened up about starring in the upcoming Bill & Ted threequel and has admitted he had "no expectation" that there would ever be a third movie.
The hit franchise, which will also see Alex Winter reprise his role as Bill to Reeves' Ted, follows aspiring musicians Bill and Ted 25 years on from where we last saw them.
"Working on that material [1989's Excellent Adventure], and getting to play it, I thought it was pretty special," Reeves told Total Film.
"I certainly, at that time, had no expectation that you and I would be speaking here today!"
Winter added: "Yeah, I mean, the very first movie was made by a bunch of young, scrappy people – and pretty independently, and we didn't really know what to expect.
"And frankly, neither did the producers. We knew it was an idiosyncratic film, so we didn't really know where it was going to go."
Directed by Dean Parisot, Bill & Ted Face the Music follows the now middle-aged rock-and-roll pals as they set out on a new adventure after receiving a mysterious message telling them that only their song can save life as we know it.
During their latest venture, they come across a whole bunch of historical figures, getting help from their children – played by Ready or Not star Samara Weaving and Atypical actor Brigette Lundy-Paine – along the way.
Glee's Jayma Mays, William Sadler, Hal Landon Jr, Kristen Schaal, Holland Taylor and Kid Cudi will also feature in the movie.
Bill and Ted Face the Music is expected to be released on August 21, 2020.
