Following Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves were reunited in the 3rd movie called Bill & Ted Face The Music.
The plot of the film was about the new adventure of Bill and Ted, who were inseparable. They came together with their passion for rock music and went on many adventures together. This time their mission was to save the planet and create a song for it.
According to the co-writer Ed Solomon, the film was made on a very tight budget and there were scenes that were never filmed because of that. Therefore, if the movie had more budget it could have been a totally different movie.
Saying they couldn’t fit everything they wanted to do in the movie, Solomon explained that in the case of a normal movie, if you like a scene and you’re not 100% sure that it will stay in the movie, you make a decision in the post-production part, but in this movie, they don’t have the money to do it normally.
These statements made the audience wonder what kind of movie would come out if it had a high budget.
Here’s what he stated:
“We were like we just can’t fit everything we want to do into the movie. In a normal film situation, if you love a scene and you’re not 100% certain it’s gonna stay in the movie but you wanna see how it lands once the film is edited, you know you shoot it and you make those decisions in post-production, but we just could not afford to do that.”
Ed Solomon stated that they will continue to share the scenes they could not include in the movie from their social media accounts, and explained that they had to choose between emotional and comedy scenes and they preferred to choose the emotional scenes for the storyline.
“On a purely comedic level that [10-year-old Bill and Ted] scene might have been a bit stronger, but on a more important level, which is the emotional throughline of the movie, it was more important for them to go back to their wives. We were forced to make the choice because we just couldn’t afford to shoot both.”
