Rumors have circulated for years that a “Bill & Ted 3” film is in the works. Now those rumors are no more. The script for the third installment of the laid back duo’s comedic time traveling adventures is finished. Presently, the project is being shopped around to find prospective producers to green light and finance the film. Actors Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves have expressed interest in reprising their title roles.
Winter responded to a question from the daughter of his late, legendary co-star George Carlin concerning news of the film on Twitter.
“@kelly_carlin: is it true? Bill & Ted’s 3?” > Hey Kelly.-Script done? Check. -We love it? Check. -Green light? Working on it!
Writer James Mottram asked Reeves about the long-rumored third outing for Bill S. Preston, esquire, and Ted “Theodore” Logan. This is what Reeves had to say.
“Yeah, we have a script,” he confirms. “We’re trying to put it together. It’s a good script too.”
“Party on dudes!!!”
The presently titled “Bill & Ted 3” project is in development, and will star Keanu Reeves, and Alex Winter. Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson wrote the screenplay. No director has been selected to helm the feature at this time.
