Third Bill & Ted Film on the Way. Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves return as Bill and Ted, nearly 23 years since we last saw them. The exact release is yet to be announced but there’s been a lot of new information about the movie in the past 24 hours, courtesy of Alex Winter himself. Winters spoke of the project to Yahoo!, “[Bill & Ted] will be 40-something and it’s all about Bill and Ted grown up, or not grown up,” adding, “It’s really sweet and really f—ing funny.
“But it’s a Bill & Ted movie, that’s what it is. It’s for the fans of Bill & Ted. It fits very neatly in the [series]. It’s not going to feel like a reboot. The conceit is really funny: What if you’re middle-aged, haven’t really grown up and you’re supposed to have saved the world and maybe, just maybe, you kinda haven’t?”
Winter also mentioned that he’d stayed in touch with the writers and Reeves over the years, and the script has already been written but they’re waiting to make it perfect. Also giving a glimpse as to how the film came about, “We’d be having dinner and we’d be like, ‘is there a point? Is there a way in?’ We’d kick an idea around and go no and we would leave it alone for a bunch of years. I guess about four years ago we had an idea together that we thought was pretty great. I think it was because so much time had gone by that it was great.”
Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure (1989) brought together Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves as two slacker best friends who take a journey through time to historical events in order to write a report. The film series has gained a cult following based on the first film and the 1991 sequel Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey.
