The news keeps rolling out about the third film in the Bill & Ted franchise. Keanu Reeves talked with GQ and said this about the plot details for Bill & Ted III:
“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.
So everybody is kind of like: ‘Where is the song?; The guys have just drifted off into esoterica and lost their rock.
We go on this expedition, go into the future to find out if we wrote the song, and 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. In one version we’re in jail; in another we’re at some kind of highway motel and they hate us.”
What do you think about that? It could work out, there’s a lot of material in that search for the greatest song. The movie still needs financing and a studio to produce the film so perhaps this is an attempt by Keanu to hype up the fan base and garner interest from studios. If that’s the case then expect some more info to come out in the days to come.
