BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Bill and Ted 3 is one of those sequels that has been sitting on the shelf just waiting to be made. More than a few original castmembers - including Keanu Reeves - have expressed interest in getting the movie into production, yet Hollywood keeps stalling and not getting the job done.
Funding is obviously a pretty key factor, and Bill & Ted 3's future entirely depends on it, but the good news is that everything else seems to be in place. Galaxy Quest director Dean Parisot is still interested in directing, original writers/creators Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon have written the script, and the plot that Reeves has described is fantastic.
We've seen Bill and Ted travel through time and meet the Grim Reaper, and now that it's just about time for the second sequel we learn that the series is taking the next logical step: alternate futures. Keanu Reeves, who starred as Ted in both Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure and Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey, has revealed in an interview what we can expect from the San Dimas duo's next trip.
One of the key players in Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey was the Grim Reaper, played by William Sadler. If not for the Reaper’s inability to best Bill and Ted at various games, including Clue (“I said Plum!” “You said Mustard!”), Battleship, and Twister, the duo would not have been granted a second chance at life and the opportunity to thwart the Evil Robot Us’es.
They’ve been to the past. They’ve been to the future. They’ve been all around the after life. Where (or when) will Bill and Ted be adventuring next? We don’t know just yet, but from the latest most non-heinous tweet of an update offered by Alex Winter (Bill), it sounds like things are close to moving forward on the third installment of the franchise and they’re working on getting the greenlight.
We've been hearing for months - if not years - that Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter will reunite for a possible Bill and Ted 3. Back in September Reeves expressed hope for the project and Winter confirmed that the project was in the works, but one major question still loomed: what would the sequel be about? Today we have an idea.
He speaks kindly about the possibility of getting back together with cast and crew, but only if the story is there and if the movie can stand up on its own
