Feeling pressure to get into production before he’s age-appropriate for the Expendables franchise, Keanu Reeves is eager to get filming on a third Bill & Ted movie. Although rumors have swirled about the film for some time, there was never any concrete info released. While the film may not have funding yet, thanks to an interview Reeves did with GQ, we at least know what adventure and/or journey they will take us on this time.

The new script, from creators Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson, finds Bill and Ted having been “crushed by the responsibility of having to write the greatest song ever written and to change the world. And they haven’t done it.”

“So everybody is kind of like: ‘Where is the song?’ The guys have just drifted off into esoterica and lost their rock.”

“We go on this expedition, go into the future to find out if we wrote the song, and one future ‘us’ refuses to tell us, and another future ‘us’ blames us for their lives because we didn’t write the song, so they’re living this terrible life,” Reeves said. “In one version we’re in jail; in another we’re at some kind of highway motel and they hate us.”

Makes sense seeing as “Trapped in the Closet” already exists as the greatest song ever written.

Script For ‘Bill And Ted 3′ Complete (Excellent!), Waiting For Greenlight (Bogus!) http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/script-for-bill-and-ted-3-complete-excellent-waiting-for-greenlight-bogus/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/script-for-bill-and-ted-3-complete-excellent-waiting-for-greenlight-bogus/#comments Tue, 06 Mar 2012 18:33:44 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=246849 I'm guessing Alex Winter has a little more at stake here than Keanu does.

On March 4, Alex Winter (Bill) Tweeted that the script for Bill and Ted 3 was complete. The news was met with gasps and cheers as the world collectively exclaimed, “Alex Winter is on Twitter? Why?”

For moments like this, people.

As co-star Keanu Reeves had said in an interview a while back, the script is done, but the project hasn’t yet gotten the go-ahead, so we’re stuck in a state of limbo, not unlike Bill and Ted were in their Bogues Journey. It‘s been 21 years since the last Bill and Ted film, so where the writers decided to pick this one up is anyone’s guess. Fortunately, Bill and Ted seems to be a pretty forgiving franchise when it comes to leaps of logic, so whether or not the two actors continue to play high school version of themselves or middle-age men is pretty much irrelevant.

The important thing is that they conduct another presentation to the students of San Dimas and really dive into Bill’s Oedipal complex.

New ‘Bill & Ted’ Definitely In The Works: Alex Winter Backs Keanu http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/new-bill-ted-definitely-in-the-works-alex-winter-backs-keanu/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/new-bill-ted-definitely-in-the-works-alex-winter-backs-keanu/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Linkin Park? Alex Winter has corroborated Keanu Reeves' story from earlier this week. William S. Preston, Esq. himself, told MTV that a third Bill & Ted film is in the works. They were struggling to find the right plot for a while, but now writers Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon have hatched a plot that they've begun writing. The big issue, however, is what to do about George Carlin's character? Winter assures there's no way they would re-cast the part, so the trick now is to delicately work around his character. I'm hoping this means they'll use sophisticated Coke commercial CGI technology to bring him back to life. If I know Carlin, that's definitely what he would want to happen. (MTV)
