Most righteous! Twenty five years after two deadbeat teens went on an excellent adventure together, the pair is planning to reunite for another go-round.
Alex Winter recently confirmed that Bill & Ted 3 is happening and the film’s been in the works for almost four years. Even better — both he and Keanu Reeves will return as the titular character for the third entry in the fan-favorite franchise. Excellent!
‘Bill & Ted 3’ — Alex Winter Confirms New Movie With Him & Keanu Reeves
“It’s a Bill and Ted movie, that’s what it is. It’s for the fans of Bill & Ted. It fits very neatly in the [series]. It’s not going to feel like a reboot. The conceit is really funny: what if you’re middle-aged, haven’t really grown up and you’re supposed to have saved the world and maybe, just maybe, you kinda haven’t?” Alex told Slashfilm.com, when talking about the new film.
“[Bill and Ted] will be 40-something, and it’s all about Bill and Ted grown up, or not grown up,” he told Yahoo. “It’s really sweet and really f***ing funny.”
Alex warned, though, that it may be a while before we see the pair back on-screen. There’s currently no release date.
‘Bill & Ted’: A Long-Awaited Third Installment
Bill and Ted first made their way into our hearts in 1989, when they hopped into a phone booth and set off on their time-traveling adventure. The bizarrely entertaining movie had the boys meet Socrates, Joan of Arc and everyone in between.
In the movie’s sequel Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, they continued to make us laugh with their antics by coming back from the dead after finding their way around the Grim Reaper.
At the time, we couldn’t get enough of the two lovable slackers, so news confirming a third movie has us so excited! How do YOU feel, HollywoodLifers?
