Bill and Ted 3

bitcoins

While I continue to dream that one day Alex Winter will hit up Kickstarter for support of a Freaked sequel, I guess I can settle for him making another documentary about the Internet. Winter, who we’ll always first and foremost think of as Bill S. Preston from the Bill & Ted movies (the third of which is currently dealing with budget issues), recently made his nonfiction feature directorial debut with the Napster history Downloaded. It’s a pretty good doc, sometimes superfluous and obvious and not quite as insightful about the digital and online revolution as something like We Live in Public or We Are Legion, but it’s plenty informative with its straightforward, orally chronicled telling of the who and the what. If you’d like to check it out for free, which is the appropriate way, you can stream it on AOL and not even have to illegally download it. Winter’s next project will go further down the rabbit hole. The doc is titled Deep Web: The Untold Story of Bitcoin and The Silk Road, and hopefully the “deep” in the title is promise that the subject matter will be a little deeper here as well. Not that I won’t settle for something just as efficiently and comprehensively informative as Downloaded. Honestly, I don’t even really understand what Bitcoin is (online currency, but I don’t get the details of it), and I hadn’t even ever heard of The Silk Road until seeing the title of this film (it’s an online black […]

If there’s one thing the world needs, it’s another installment of the Melvin-ing adventurers Bill S. Preston, Esq. and Ted Theodore Logan. This is empirically true and can be shown through science (the act of pouring different colored liquids into other containers of different colored liquids). The team over at /film has gathered together some information about the possible project, but the key component is that Alex Winter is now currently reading the script, which means that a script for Bill & Ted 3 exists. Ostensibly, the story will focus on the pair writing the song that changes the world, but how will they travel in time in a world without phone booths? Oh, God. This thing is really happening, isn’t it? If only there were a way to go back in time and stop it from happening…or maybe it’ll be awesome beyond belief, and it’ll be the movie that finally brings the world together. Wouldn’t that be great? Remakes and decades-later sequels are just as in demand as “being meta” so if they can manage to make a movie about saving the world through music that ends up saving the world, that would be the highest grossing film of all time. Science strikes again.

The best hope for the brutal future our world faces is another Bill and Ted movie. Since this is self-evident, there’s no need to debate it or explain it, and Keanu Reeves is delivering just a glimmer of hope for a brighter tomorrow. In a recent interview, he claimed that he’d love to revisit the character and work with Alex “Bill S. Preston, Esq.” Winter again. After throwing out strange ideas like filming the movie in black and white with a dash of 3D and having multiple directors (specifically Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola, and Werner Herzog), it apparently never dawned on Reeves why another sequel (which should have been called Bill and Ted Go To White Castle) just can’t happen: George Carlin is no longer with us. The hopes for the future are dashed again. But seriously, everyone wants this thing, right? [MTV]
