William Sadler to return as Grim Reaper in Bill & Ted Face the Music
Bill and Ted Face the Music (2020 Movie)
It has been confirmed that actor William Sadler (The Shawshank Redemption, Demon Knight) will reprise the role of the Grim Reaper in Bill & Ted Face the Music. Sadler memorably played the role of Death in 1991’s Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, the second film in the Keanu Reeves- and Alex Winter-starring movie series, during a sequence which comedically riffed on Ingmar Bergman’s classic film, The Seventh Seal.
Confirmation of Sadler’s courtesy came via the official Bill & Ted 3 Twitter account. “For those who have been asking,” read the message, “[Sadler] will totally be reprising his role!”
It was announced last week that Bill & Ted Face the Music will shoot this summer and be released in theaters nationwide on Aug. 21, 2020.
