Ever since Keanu Reeves intimated that he was into the idea of doing a third Bill & Ted movie, it’s been pretty hard to focus on anything other than how awesome it would be to see him and Alex Winter get back together to play the adult versions of their dim-bulb, metalhead characters. So, we should all thank Coming Soon for compiling a couple of reassuring quotes that point to the fact that Bill & Ted 3 might be entering production sooner rather than later.
First, Reeves mentioned the prospective project once again while doing an interview with The Independent. When asked about the long-rumored third film he replied, “Yeah, we have a script. We’re trying to put it together. It’s a good script too.” That’s encouraging, but not too different from things we’ve heard about this one before. The second uncovered quote points to the fact that a third excellent adventure is one step closer to becoming a reality, however. When asked about the movie on Twitter, Alex Winter responded to a fan and former Bill & Ted extra by saying, “Script done? Check. -We love it? Check. -Green light? Working on it!”
So, don’t go playing air guitar yet; Bill & Ted 3 still isn’t officially happening. Somebody is going to have to step forward and put up some cash in order for this most excellent proposition to become reality. With a completed script, both original stars verbally on board, and a cult following eagerly awaiting word of the franchise’s future, it’s probably only a matter of time before somebody coughs up some dough though. It’s just going to be kind of bittersweet to watch it all come together without George Carlin involved. Thankfully, we still have Station.
