For a long time, there have been rumors considering a third Bill And Ted film and now it is finally going to happen. Only thing is that it won’t happen the way anyone really wants it to.
The yet untitled film will be direct-to-video and not star Keanu Reeves as Ted “Theodore” Logan or Alex Winter as Bill S. Preston, Esquire. The script has already been written by Suzanne Francis and Gabe Grifoni (both writers of The Wieners) and will likely be produced by Frank Mancuso Jr.
Instead of a third film to the series, the new one is rumored to be closer to a remake of the original then anything else. Surprisingly enough, even though it has been 16 years since their last journey together, Winter and Reeves were hoping to once again fill the shoes of the Wyld Stallyns. Reeves’ agent didn’t think it was the best idea for his image though.
Reeves said, “You know, I’ve always thought we should do it when we’re 40, because those two at 40 would be funny. He [Winter] and I have spoken about it. But you know what, we don’t own the material, so it’s not up to us. We just play the parts, man. But it would be funny to see them, fat and 40, singing in an airport hotel lounge.“
