Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter have posed for photos and spoken on camera about their upcoming reboot of Bill & Ted with Entertainment Weekly.

The long-awaited third film in the series will follow 1989's Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure and 1991's Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey.

"[Writers Chris Matheson and Ed Solomom] came to us in 2007 with the idea of doing it," Reeves tells Entertainment Weekly.

"They pitched us an idea and it sounded great. They've been really collaborative with us, which is really cool."

The third movie will be entitled Bill & Ted Face the Music and see the older, not necessarily wiser boys - who are married, with children - struggling to compose music that will transform the world into an idyllic utopia.

Ed Solomon says the third movie will be "kind of like A Christmas Carol with Bill and Ted".

A director is not yet attached, but in 2010, Reeves said he wanted Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola and Werner Herzog to all co-direct it.

The film has not yet been bought by a studio, but Solomon says they are "hoping to close a deal with some financiers... hopefully within the next month or so".
