It was just a year ago that everyone thought Keanu Reeves was just joking around about getting a new Bill and Ted movie into production. Now there is an actual script floating is said to be completed that both Keanu and Alex Winter are excited about.
Alex Tweeted about the script in response to a question by user @antmaurizio:
“@antmaurizio: Bill & Ted 3, less than 6 weeks away and counting? Movie is gonna kick some ass.” > Just got the script. And now to read…”
The reported premise of Bill & Ted 3 is as follows:
When we last got together, part of it was that Bill and Ted were supposed to have written the song that saved the world, and it hasn’t happened… So they’ve now become kind of possessed by trying to do that. Then there’s an element of time and they have to go back.
That was the one big thing left unanswered, what was the song and how did they come up with it? From the start Alex has had some definite ideas about what another movie must have:
We kicked around the idea over the years and had always thought if we could make something that was as kind of genuine in spirit as the originals and without falling prey to kind of retro cynicism or something that was unnecessary, it would be worth doing… The truth is that, yeah, we have finally hit upon an idea that we think is pretty great.
With the death of George Carlin we won’t be seeing Rufus unless there is some movie magic done. I wouldn’t mind a quick cameo, but would rather see Rufus’s cousin or son or some related character instead of shots cut around old Carlin material. What do you think? Speaking of movie magic, someone needs to toss in a little CG correction on Alex Winters aged face. He looks like your moms vagina.
