The last time we checked in on the progress of Bill & Ted 3, the screen’s Bill S. Preston, Esq., Alex Winter, informed us that both he and the actor who portrayed “Ted” Theodore Logan, Keanu Reeves, were very much on board to make another sequel, a script for the film had been completed, and everybody was very happy with how it read. Unfortunately, the movie still wasn’t officially green lit by anyone, and wasn’t guaranteed to ever actually happen. Happily, there’s some new movement regarding the project that suggests we may be one step closer to the glorious fantasy of Bill & Ted 3 getting financed becoming a reality.

Starting around last September Reeves did exactly that by saying that the original B&T writers, Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon, were “going to try and see if they can write something.” When recently asked what the current status was on those efforts were, Reeves said, “I believe the writers are six weeks away from a draft. No pressure, guys!” Six weeks sounds a lot more concrete than trying to see if they can whip up a little something-something. Maybe this thing is going down after all. But what would another Bill and Ted movie be about here in 2011, with a rapidly aging duo of actors?
