Keanu Reeves talks “Bill & Ted” sequel ideas
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Are you ready to hear Wyld Stallyns rock your movie theater once again?
We may be edging closer to that reality as Keanu Reeves opened up (slightly) about a possible third installment in the “Bill & Ted” franchise.
“I believe the writers are six weeks away from a draft,” Reeves told MTV before looking in the camera and saying, “No pressure!”
Wyld Stallyns – you don’t need me to remind you – was the band formed by Reeves and Alex Winter in the first “Bill & Ted.” Though they weren’t very good, the late George Carlin informed them that their metal music would one day unite the planet in a comfy robe of peace. That plot point, according to Reeves, may fuel the third film … if it happens.
“When we last got together, part of it was that Bill and Ted were supposed to have written the song that saved the world, and it hasn’t happened,” he said. “So they’ve now become kind of possessed by trying to do that. Then there’s an element of time and they have to go back.”
Of course they do. So a script is in motion, and Reeves seems interested. Is Winter? And what of Carlin’s passing? Would it really be “Bill & Ted” without Rufus?
We shall see what happens as time passes.
