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 and apparently it has to deal with them trying to figure out where things all went wrong and finding a way to make them right.
"One of the plot points is that these two people have been crushed by the responsibility of having to write the greatest song ever written and to change the world, and they haven't done it," Reeves recently told GQ. "So everybody is kind of like: 'Where is the song?; The guys have just drifted off into esoterica and lost their rock." In order to try and fulfill their destiny and become the greatest musicians of all time as the rock band Wyld Stallyns, Bill and Ted travel into the future to find out what happens and run into multiple possible future versions of themselves. "One future 'us' refuses to tell us, and another future 'us' blames us for their lives because we didn't write the song, so they're living this terrible life," the star said. "In one version we're in jail; in another we're at some kind of highway motel and they hate us."
Just last week we learned that Galaxy Quest director Dean Parisot has been hired to helm the project, which was written by Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon, the creators of the franchise. In addition to Reeves, Alex Winter is also set to come back and reprise his role as Bill.
And I will close out this article by just saying this: San Dimas High School Football Rules!
