Ready for some excellent news? According to Alex Winter, Bill & Ted 3 is going to be really f*cking funny.
Of course, it could be a few years until we get to see this really f*cking funny movie. Winter, who plays the bodacious Bill, said that he’s been talking to Keanu Reeves and original writers Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon and the group believes that they have a great idea for the new movie. Now they just have to write it.
Winter said in an interview with Yahoo News: “Me and Keanu and [original writers] Chris [Matheson] and Ed [Solomon] are all very close and have remained close over the years … 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.”
Winter said that he’s been toying with the idea of making a Bill & Ted 3 for a longtime but now he’s under a little bit of pressure since fans found out that it was really going to happen.
Winter said: “The thing we had going against us is that word got out,” he explains. “That was kind of a bummer. It just takes a long time to put a movie together. Now we’re having to build this thing in public, which is fine. I just feel bad [the fans] have to get dragged through this long, boring, protracted process.”
So what will the new movie be about? Well, you can probably guess. It will be about Bill & Ted and an adventure. Or maybe a journey. Or maybe a voyage or a trek or an expedition. You get the idea.
Winter said: “[Bill & Ted] will be 40-something and it’s all about Bill and Ted grown up, or not grown up. It’s really sweet and really f—-ing funny.”
We don’t have a release date yet and we probably won’t see any footage from Bill & Ted 3 anytime soon. Winter said that they are still working on a script.
