Bill & Ted 3 Script Nearly Done: Keanu Reeves, Alex Winter Return
Keanu Reeves Confirms Bill and Ted 3
Keanu Reeves confirmed that a script for Bill & Ted 3 is nearly complete. The time-travel slacker comedy introduced the world to Keanu Reeves (Ted Logan) and Alex Winter (Bill S. Preston, Esq.), as they took a most excellent adventure through history. The sequel was Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey, which was originally titled Bill & Ted Go to Hell.
A Bill & Ted sequel has been in the works for quite some time, in various forms, but this is the most concrete confirmation that we have that such a project will see the light of day. It's unclear who will take the role of Rufus, originally played by comedy legend George Carlin.
Keanu Reeves has also recently confirmed some upcoming Matrix sequels; though the second two films in the original Matrix trilogy have squandered a lot of good will, primarily because The Matrix: Reloaded and Revolutions were nonsense.
At any rate, Keanu Reeves says that a Bill and Ted 3 script, written by the saga's original screenwriters, is six weeks away from a first draft.
"I believe the writers are six weeks away from a draft," he said on Monday (April 4), adding with a laugh, "No pressure, guys!"
