Is This The Coolest News From Last Night's Oscars?? Keanu Says BILL & TED May Party On!!

Merrick here...
MTV caught up with Keanu Reeves on the Oscar's red carpet last night - their discussion turned to BILL & TED.
While it's hard to completely read Reeves in this clip, he's saying (seriously, but with a smile?) there's still a possibility of a third film in that series. The below embed originates HERE.
This is actually not a terribly new notion - Keanu's been talking up a third BILL & TED movie for a while now. His hope is to reunite with co-star Alex Winter in a film that would catch-up with the characters as adults (as much as you can use the world "adult" in association with Bill or Ted). What would be newsworthy here is that Keanu might now be doing more than just talking about it...unless he's totally yanking MTV's chain, dude. I hold a mammoth spot in my heart for these films...the first one in particular...and gotta say I don't mind this concept at all. The lunacy of the franchise as a whole can easily support a concept in which our "grown-up" heroes struggle to cope with the real world while facing non-triumphant obstacles and enemies of a quantum/metaphysical nature. Whoa. The result could be most bodacious. If you've never seen BILL & TED'S BOGUS JOURNEY, check out this DIE HARD 2's William Sadler as The Grim Reaper.
I've spoken to several educators - including an assistant principal at a top-ranking school - who strongly urge their staff and associates to watch the first film (BILL & TED'S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE). Seems that, within all of the movie's tripped-out insanity, there are sublime truths to be found about the ways kids view their lives and worlds. These educators use the B&T movies as something of a training tool, and I can't say I disagree with their interpretations. We'll see what comes of this...

    by 2dope

    Two films defined my 80's youth more than any others, and they are Karate Kid and Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure. Of the countless films I saw that decade, those two have always stuck with me and I would love to see B&T come back and deal with some more royal ugly dudes!

  • March 8, 2010, 12:56 p.m. CST

    I didn't care for the second one

    by lochkray

    But the first was a blast. George Carlin providing a time-travelling phone booth to a couple of stoners (although, I don't actually recall either partaking of any weed during the movies). It was that fine line between idiocy and genius. Sixty-nine dudes.

    Those movies were great

    by SK229

    Wouldn't mind seeing a third one, I actually think Bill & Ted is like the under appreciated Back to the Future and, like BTTF, has a second film that's as good, if not better (at least in B&T's case) as the first.

  • March 8, 2010, 1 p.m. CST

    I'm sure Alex Winter...

    by Ray Gamma

    ...said something derogatory about Keanu Reeves' acting skills in an interview I saw once, like it was "just his looks got him where he is" sort of thing (although I'd probably agree with that - Alex Winter himself was the really engaging, comedic part of the duo in the Bill & Ted films) but maybe he was actually kidding around and just pulling Keanu's chain.

    by REVENGE_of_FETT

    I mean, I know he hasn't had a hit in awhile, but Jesus, a middle-aged Bill & Ted? That would be like George Clooney doing a sequel to Attack of the Killer Tomatoes!

    re: "2Dope" above...

    by Ray Gamma

    "Bill and Ted's Excellent adventure was made in 1989; it hardly qualifies as an eighties movie at all- and certainly doesn't register in my own memory as an eighties movie. And I should know, I'm fucking old.

  • March 8, 2010, 1:05 p.m. CST

    Bill and Ted Jr are the real Bill and Ted.

    by JediRob

    I always the the best concept for this movie sees their kids as the actual chosen two, and some error along the way had mixed them up with their Fathers. <br><br>I tell ya though, without Rufus...he would be missed.

  • March 8, 2010, 1:05 p.m. CST


    by JMH1973

    Is Hollywood completely run by late 20's/early 30's fanboys with mental deficiencies now? That's the only explanation for another Bill & Ted movie. And the Red Dawn. And Police Academy. And Clash of the Titans. And A Nightmare on Elm Street. And Fright Night. Oh, and Drop Dead Fred(!). And on and on and on.

    Didn't care much

    by yodaismyhomie

    For the 2nd one. Had some clever stuff in it, but Station was annoying. However, I have always wanted to see more of these two characters. Bring on the 3rd!

  • March 8, 2010, 1:12 p.m. CST

    If you love B&T, read comics...

    by BadWaldosRevenge

    ...written and drawn by Evan Dorkin. Classic Marvel comics from the early 90's, now available in two paperback volumes. Get Marvel back issues if you can, 'cause it's in four-press color. Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventures series is classic, but it seemed to have fizzled out after only two movies. George Carlin is dead and Alex Winter is MIA, probably snorting cocaine in a dumpy apartment. Here's hoping Bill & Ted 3rd movie will be as good as the first two, because 1988 and 1991 movies are memorable for a child of the 80's. Bill & Ted Saturday morning cartoon is groovy, check it out:

  • March 8, 2010, 1:13 p.m. CST

    Nobody should ever see Bill & Ted as adults. Never.

    by Hervoyel

    If George Carlin was still alive and every single cast member was lined up to do another one it wouldn't make it right. This is not something that should happen. This should never see the light of day. The first two were outstanding stupidity and a lot of fun. There's nothing more to be said here though. There wasn't anything left to say halfway through the second one now that I think about it. It was fun and it was entertaining and it needs to stay in the past. It would be preferably to reboot the damn thing before trying to cram a third one in with Bill & Ted as adults and even that is a shitty idea.

  • March 8, 2010, 1:15 p.m. CST

    Those movies were comedy gold.

    by Ganymede3001

    Where has Alex Winter been anyway? I haven't seen him since the Lost Boys?

  • March 8, 2010, 1:18 p.m. CST

    come on

    by Ray Gamma

    the best bit in the whole of the two bill & ted movies is the bit where the evil robot us's reveal themselves and threaten the real bill & ted, and then the evil robot us's do the air guitar solo and the real bill & ted do the air guitar solo along with them.

  • March 8, 2010, 1:18 p.m. CST

    There's a sequel that tops the first one.

    by alan_poon

  • March 8, 2010, 1:18 p.m. CST

    The second one

    by Doggus47

    I saw the second one in the theater and thought it was hilarious. When it came out on video a few months later my friends and I instantly rented it. For some reason, it totally missed the mark watching it the second time. Bogus Journey doesn't have the replay value the first one had.

  • March 8, 2010, 1:21 p.m. CST

    Would this really be relevant though?

    by TheWaqman

    I'd watch it for sure. But air guitar and dude-isms...we are in the generic electro-pop age now.

    by Alientoast

    Death made the 2nd movie. I thought it was genius that when they had the chance to battle Death in any competition, they chose board games and foozeball. "You have sunk my battleship!" "Excellent!" "BEST 3 out of 5!!!". You also had to love their wacky use of temporal mechanics.

    Can Someone Explain "Station" To me?

    by Spacezilla

    I never got that. I think Bill and Ted 2 is way funnier then the first one until they get done talking to god. Then it goes downhill hard, and I don't fucking get the station shit. "station!" WTF?! But everything else makes me laugh. The hell shit is really funny as is their evil robot dopplegangers.

Either way, WW is the face to B&TEA's ass any way you slice it.<p>And yes, Alex Winter is the more talented of the duo, check out anything he's done to see (Freaked with Randy Quaid comes to mind plus he did a comedy show on some channel back in the day)...

    The REAL news coming from this

    by Bass Ackwards

    Because this isn't news, that was obviously Keanu just riffing with an interview, but out of curiosity I looked up Winter's on IMDB, and he's directing a remake of The Gate. There's a movie I vaguely remember seeing as a kid and being freaked the hell out, though at this point I can't recollect even the story. I only remember the hand with the eyeball.

    by umbral_shadow_

    Keanu was just yanking MTV's chain. He's spent the last two decades trying to establish humself as a "credible" actor, so I doubt he's going to wreck all that now. And do we really want to see two fortysomething men acting like doofs? Thre have been enough kidadult films made to last three lifetimes.

    Is a word not unlike "dude" in that it can have a few different meanings. Some simultaneously.<p>1. Station was/were the "greatest scientists in the Universe"<p>2.

    Bogus Journey....

    by Darth Macchio

    Is indeed underrated but it's also ass in many ways too. Basically, anything the Evil Robot Bill&Ted do or say is the best part. The Grim Reaper sucks really bad after they go to Heaven. The ending is way too corny and over the top (a ZZ top beard? wtf?) and I never understood why they changed the future clothes to that primary colored foam-rubber puffy shit instead of the kewl weird hair and shiny shirts from the first one.<p>Alex Winter really shines in BJ too but someone needed to reign in the became caricature-like at some point. Evil Bill and Ted are the best thing in that movie without a doubt. Especially Evil Bill.

    The sequel idea

    by TheJudger

    A very large ufo comes to earth. Every damn device on earth with a speaker on it starts playing a unknown rock song. It's obviously coming from the ship. A strange smaller ufo exits the ship and lands on earth. A door slides open and a ramp is projected onto the ground. A flashing dual person icon appears above the door. The government sends two soldiers into the ship. The ramp carries them to the entrance of the door. The ramp stops. A scanner device pops out of the door. It laser scans the two soldiers. A projected ghost face of Bill and Ted is projected over theirs- they don't match. The scanner turns red- it shots out a different colored laser that vaporizes the soldiers. The ships door slams shut. A video image begins to play on it's surface. It's a clip of Bill and Ted from Wyld Stallions music video. The video stops. A countdown sequence begins. We figure out pretty quick that the aliens want Bill and Ted. Problem is they died in a tornado several decades ago. Seem our boys never became the future world peace icons they were supposed to become. At the height of their career the grunge movement came into being and the Wyld Stallions along with many other excellent rock bands of the 80's went bankrupt. The boys lost everything including the babes and their kids. We cut to the past the boys are living in a trailer park and working at a Circle K. We spend a day with them seeing how much their life sucks. Late at night while smoking pot on the roof of their trailer, We see something fall out of the sky. It hits their neighbors trailer. The boys check it out. A phone booth is sitting in the living room. A number is written on the window. They look at each other they get in and dial up. The adventure begins.

    Have it as a situation where you flash forward 20 years. Wyld Stallyns never took off to the degree they were hoping it to. The whole thing at the end of Bogus Journey was a whole 'wishful thinking' thing. We find out by the end of the movie, that they actually needed to wait for their children to grow up so they could form a full band with them, fathers and sons in the same band or something. Remove the princess babes, drop the fathers and sons in, have a full on rock band. EXCELLENNNNNT!

    For the life of me, I can't see where you go with the concept of B&T as adults ... I too have always had a soft spot for the clever corniness of those two movies (more the first than the second, but it was impressive that they found a cool concept at all for the sequel). But I wouldn't want to see them still being the same slackers years later ... part of the fun of B&T was the thought they really would eventually grow up and have a clue.

    best 5 out of 7. Would love. Love! to see a grown up Bill and Ted, especially if they've actually changed and are successful and have lost their slacker innocence and they have to rediscover it. 80s nostalgia abounds. If Tron can do it, well...And yeah, just because it came out in 89, doesn't mean that it's not 80s. It was conceived and made in the 80s. Feels like an 80s film. Most decades still stick around for the first few years of the next decade before the character of the time shifts. That's why early 90s films still feel like the 80s. Things don't just automatically change culturally when the decade ends.

    Mercifully, Bill & Ted TV series will be ignored.

    speaking of the oscars..

    where has harry's oscar blog gone? I was on this site in net cafe couple of days ago and it was active. but now its gone. tried searching for it on this site and all i got was either capones arthouse oscar round from this year or links to the nominees from this year did things get really ugly for harry when he realised that cameron lost. rumours suggest that cameron was not the favourite to win by any means and regardless of the luke warm reaction to the hurt locker, in the end Hollywood, which was beaming from ear to ear over how well avatar did, did not want to see cameron on the podium. because despite the fans and thier worship of Cameron. He is not all that well liked in hollywood. I have heard.

    If they are going to do a B&T film..

    I suggest Morgan Freeman or Samuel L jackson as rufus. or Chris Rock. But it wont happen. not after Keanu entered the Matrix and shredded his surfer dude personae. He was dreadful in the watcher.
