‘Bill & Ted 3’ Is Happening

Get ready for another excellent adventure!

Following the original film in 1989, and then a 1991 sequel, Bogus Journey, Alex has confirmed that a third movie is in fact in the works, nearly 25 years later!

Alex broke the news while discussing all of his various projects. When asked whether he tires of being asked about the classic films, he said he is not. “We’re trying to get the movie made, so how could we be sick of it?” he told Yahoo.

The good news doesn’t stop there, though! According to Alex, everyone on board is eager to get the ball rolling. “We’re producing it and we’re actively trying to get it made,” he said. “We’re not tired of it, but I think for our fans, we are eager to stop talking about and actually shoot the damn thing.”

Costars & Friends

Although it’s been over two decades since Keanu and Alex worked together on a Bill & Ted film, they have worked together on other projects since. Most recently, Keanu narrated Alex’s documentary Deep Web, which depicts the arrest of Ross William Ulbricht who was convicted of creating the online drug market, Silk Road.

“I’m honored to be working with Alex Winter on his timely and vital documentary,” Keanu said in a statement. “The Silk Road and trial of Ross Ulbricht involve many important and complex issues that impact the life of Mr. Ulbricht and us all.”
