The idea of Bill & Ted cresting fifty years of age freaks me out. The idea of a Bill & Ted movie without George Carlin saddens me. The idea of a very 90’s (well the first one opened in 1989 but you get the drift) series coming back now causes consternation.
All these emotions on their own are negative but for some reason the long-teased third Bill & Ted movie seems right. Keanu Reeves doesn’t need it. It isn’t a desperation move. Alex Winter as an actor again is heartwarming and intriguing. The fact the original writers are doing it is apt.
So, bring it on.
When speaking to MTV about his upcoming Henry’s Crime, Mr. Reeves said that the script for the third Bill & Ted movie is weeks away. While a script doesn’t guarantee funding and release, it’s a step.
From his own bearded head:
“When we last got together, part of it was that Bill and Ted were supposed to have written the song that saved the world, and it hasn’t happened. So they’ve now become kind of possessed by trying to do that. Then there’s an element of time and they have to go back.” Read the rest here.
