The third film will be called , and it will hit theaters August 21, 2020, if the Twitter account is accurate.
Naturally, time travel will be involved. Per an accompanying press release:
Following 1989’s and 1991’s , the stakes are higher than ever for William “Bill” S. Preston Esq. (Winter) and Theodore “Ted” Logan (Reeves). Yet to fulfill their rock-and-roll destiny, the now middle-aged best friends set out on a new adventure, when a visitor from the future warns them that only their song can save life as we know it and bring harmony to the universe. Along the way, they will be helped by their families, old friends, and a few music legends.
The film will be directed by Dean Parisot of and will reunite the screenwriters of the two previous films, Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson (who is incidentally the son of scribe Richard Matheson).
