Keanu Says BILL & TED 3 Is Being Written...Sorta...

Merrick here...
The great Alex Winter recently indicated to me (via my Twitter stream) that all the recent talk of a third BILL & TED movie was "nothing more than a lark for now" - which is true, but that fact doesn't seem to stop the notion from inching tentatively, albeit minutely, forward. Keanu Reeves sat down with MTV for a discussion which turned to another BILL & TED picture. Echoing Winters' recent comments (HERE), Reeves alludes that he Alex, and Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon (the writers of the previous two films in the series) have been talking through ideas for a third installment, and reveals that Solomon and Matheson are developing a script for the proposed project. My understanding is (and it's important to remember) that this is happening (more or less) as an arrangement between the four partties involved, and is not necessarily related to the involvement of a studio or production entity.
"They're gonna try and see if they can write something. To me, I would love to play the role and I'd love to work with Alex and Chris and Ed again... [EDIT] And we'll see what they do..."
...says Keanu in the MTV chat, which you can see for yourself via the emebed below...
In the same reel, Keanu does a pretty funny imagining/impression of Werner Herzog directing B&T 3. It's pretty funny....check it out.

    Wyld Stallions Didn't Quite Work Out


    One album, touring issues, label dropped them, did not restructure society. Then a Benjamin-Button ancient Bill & Ted come back from the future (in a Delorean, in a nod to BTTF) to explain what went wrong, and why it's important to fix it) because in the new timeline, Biff Tannen is the dark overlord of an army of merciless machines). Or something like that.<br><br> Anyway, I think they need to work in a Delorean time machine.

    by Jehovahs_Witness

    Although when it's full grown and scraggly, it's pretty odd looking, but his vibe that comes through still prevents it from being a pedo beard.

    Nice they might get Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon back again, those two can balance a good mix of scifi fantasy with comdedy, Evil Alien Conquerers, Mom and Dad Save the World and What Planet are You From? weren't flukes, those are underrated comedy gems. Hope they stay true to the mythology so far.

    by Johnno

    I tihnk you're good enough for the part, and Spike isn't really that deep level a character, but you got the fight in you and if you tried your hardest we could get away with a decent Spike Spiegal. BUt in any case don't let the studio screw up that project. I expect to see you put on your shades, fly into the sky and go straight through Hollywood leaving chaos and destruction in your wake to kick some suits asses at the slightest hint that they're gonna ruin that project!

    by rosasaks

    In 2015, 1985 will be as long ago as 1955 was when Back To The Future was in cinemas. I'm sure I saw a trailer for the original film being released again, is that to see if the franchise still has any legs? I'd rather see a new Back To The Future film than a new Bill and Ted film. I mean Bill and Ted was fun and everything, but it's rather dated by now, and suited its time just fine. Back To The Future is an ageless classic.

    Actually, just combine the two. Wouldn't be hard to do.. just have Bill and Ted show up as guests on Wayne's World, and then adventure starts there, so Wayne and Garth tag along. I know most people would think that's lame, but it'd be worth it to see Wayne and Garth travel to different time periods... their reactions would be like the chroma key scene in the first Wayne's World.

    by Cobb05

    They kinda painted themselves in a corner with the last movie. If it would've just ended with them winning the battle of the bands and the world watching them, it would've been fine, but all the magazine/newspaper covers at the end kinda puts you in an odd place for the 3rd movie. It basically said that Bill & Ted have become what they were supposed to be. Now, I guess you can have it set in the future and society is crumbling and basically Bill & Ted need to get the band back together. I actually liked the one idea that was thrown around where Bill & Ted were supposed to be old and fat and basically a lounge act in Vegas. And I hope they don't try to recast Rufus. Just leave that alone. Say that Rufus is dead. I mean people die in the future.

    Bill & Ted's Awesome Odyssey

    by performingmonkey

    And that, Ted my friend, is what the title most definitely should be! Or maybe Outstanding instead of Awesome...or not. Whatever, I'm extremely up for this movie! Bill & Ted approaching 50 would make this more interesting. We should see Ted basically becoming his father and threatening to send his own son (Ted jr.) to military school. We find out that the famous saviours from the future are/were in fact Ted's son, Ted jr. and (wait for it) Bill's daughter, Bill(ie) played by Dakota Fanning!

    My screen name is not (necessarily) from the music, but from a movie by the same name starring the late, great Rudy Ray Moore (better known from "Dolemite".) See Harry's DVD review thread from last week for more info.

    so difficult to do

    by MurderMostFowl

    It's got to be a really good script to succeed at this point so many years later. It's got to be on par with BTTF in terms of script and plot complexity... but most importantly it's got to flow naturally ... that's the real magic of BTTF, nothing ever feels like a stretch.( 2 and 3 however suffer from this a bit ) <BR><BR> B&T 2 is actually far better than I remembered it when I saw it in the theater. The death stuff is brilliant. <BR><BR> I don't think you can do the future angle... it won't work. The magic of Bill and Ted is that they are basically bringing history and literature down to the "common man". They're telling the audience that you can learn high minded concepts and history without having to be an uptight douche. ( taken with a bit of creative license ). It's an inclusive film because everyone knows a tiny tiny bit about the historical figures of the first movie and the literary and traditional cultural references of heaven and hell in the 2nd movie. <BR> A 3rd movie will have to preserve that feeling IMHO

  • Sept. 20, 2010, 10:17 p.m. CST


    by TV's Frank

    Yes. Yes it's horrible, this idea. Although I would like to see a 3rd movie, assuming they did a good job with it. Which they almost certainly wouldn't.

  • Sept. 20, 2010, 10:43 p.m. CST

    I love the first one

    by catlettuce4

    Really. I think the first is a great film, and pitch perfect. The second has moments, but makes some big missteps too. A third? Well, I think it has the same kind of problem as Ghostbusters 3: the second was not really as good as the first, and it's a long time after to be thinking about another sequel. I really don't know... I guess I'm hoping they could do it, but on the other hand, I don't know what's left for them to really say or do. And no Carlin is a huge hurdle to overcome. Plotwise, the first and second films implied a certain destiny, and showed how it came about... what can be said now to make a 3rd film worth it? Something about their kids screwing up the most excellent future maybe???

  • Sept. 20, 2010, 10:46 p.m. CST

    Oh, and the music...

    by catlettuce4

    Even between the first film and the second you could notice a shift in the type of music featured in the movie. Would the new film have B&T heavily into today's music? That just wouldn't work, but what else would the studio want (demand) from a film like this? UGh, I am thinking this should just be abandoned. Maybe those four guys should collaborate on some new movie premise if they really want to work together again. I don't want to see a nuke the fridge type deal with Bill and Ted.

    I've said it before

    by UtinniPuccini

    The best concept for a new Bill and Ted movie is that the Wyld Stallyns have changed the world and created perfect utopia, etc... but now their kids, Little Bill and Little Ted, have taken typical teenage rebellion to the next level. They find a time machine (or maybe they're even aided and goaded on by an evil anti-utopian time traveler) and decide to re-write history, using their own crappy punk emo music as the foundation for a new civilization. Now Bill and Ted need to smack some sense into them and prevent "Be excellent to each other" from being replaced with "Burn everything because dad won't buy me an XBox."

    Plot idea?

    by Lion_O

    I'd like to see them start off in the utopia we saw in the other films... we see too many films that accidentally ruin the happy endings of their predecessors, it'd be cool to see them actually living the life that was destined for them! Then on the day that Rufus was meant to go back and help younger Bill & Ted, Death (being a clutz) accidentally kills Rufus (doesn't sound funny now that I write it, but still...). Then the utopia crumbles around them, leaving Bill & Ted (immune because of their time-travelling) stuck in a world like today, where they have to figure out how to travel back in time and stop Death... probably isn't that good an idea to be honest... I should probably be working now instead of writing crap like this.
