‘Bill & Ted 3′ Script Has Been Completed

There have been rumors suggesting that Bill & Ted 3 was in some form of development ever since I was in elementary school. Despite the fact that the idea seemed to get kicked around every few years, I eventually forced myself to make peace with the fact that this was one entry on Hollywood’s wish list of belated sequels that was probably never going to materialize.

Last year, Keanu Reeves admitted that he was still very interested in making Bill & Ted 3 – but nothing was remotely official and I couldn’t help but wonder whether or not this property would even still look commercially viable to a studio after twenty years. So imagine my surprise earlier this month when Reeves revealed that a new script from Chris Matheson & Ed Solomon (who penned the previous two films) was only six weeks away from being finished.

Reeves remained vague regarding Bill & Ted 3‘s plot, but hinted that it would involve the duo’s struggle to write a song that helps save the world. Evidently, Matheson & Solomon are ahead of schedule – Alex Winter announced via Twitter that the script has already been completed and that he’s currently in possession of it:

@antmaurizio: Bill and Ted 3, less than 6 weeks away and counting? Movie is gonna kick some ass.” > Just got the script. And now to read…

It should be noted that the “less than 6 weeks away and counting” statement is not part of Winter’s update and does not indicate that the film is moving into production – he was only quoting another user’s original question before replying to it.  Still, this is further proof that the wheels are in motion and that Bill & Ted 3 could finally be moving forward.

I remember being told by my parents that I wasn’t allowed to see Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure – which of course made me immediately hunt down a copy. My friends and I quoted the film endlessly and even built our own time machine out of a refrigerator box. I have fond memories of playing the Bill & Ted NES games, watching the cartoon, and even attempting to give that horrible (and mercifully short-lived) live-action TV show a chance. I’m pretty sure I also begged my mom to buy me a box of Bill & Ted breakfast cereal on several occasions.

And yet – I have some seriously mixed feelings about Bill & Ted 3. This wouldn’t be the first time Hollywood has attempted to capitalize on my generation’s nostalgia by resurrecting long-dormant brands, but how many times do I have to get burned before I realize that belated follow-ups often wind up being massively disappointing?

I admit that the idea of seeing the two main characters as middle-aged men is amusing – and the fact that Matheson & Solomon are involved is certainly encouraging (well… until you take a look at their recent IMDb credits). I’m just hoping that there’s enough to sustain Bill & Ted 3 once audiences get past the thrill of seeing them back on the big screen.

  1. who asks for a movie like this to get made? It’s not like Keanu Reeves is not getting work- which he is right, or does he need the money that bad?

  2. I wonder what historical figures they’ll have in it. And an older and crankier Death would by funny too.

  3. I hope this doesn’t suck. I love the first two movies.

  4. I loved the first movie. I remember my history teaching in 10th grade telling us we were going to watch a historical film during a long class right before a holiday. We were suprised when this film is the “historical” film that he chose. It is still a movie I can pop in an enjoy every few years or so. The 2nd Bill and Ted had it moments but was not nearly as good as the first. I will remain optimistic about this one so early in the game.

  5. This could be fun.

  6. Maybe Keanu just wants to have some fun with this sequel.

  7. Cant wait for this, those two are just good for a laugh.

  8. I am sure this movie will be most triumphant. San Dimas High School football rules!

  9. Iam glad Bill & Ted did not get rebooted Iam so surprised

  10. WHOA!…… EXCELLENT!!!!

  11. The actors to play Bill & Ted will be Michael Cera & Zack Efron (Thats my opinion) or maybe Alex Winter & Keanu Reeves may something Yes to Return to the 3rd film and its like Bill & Ted got reunited with their 13 year Class Reunion from 1988 to 2008 in about 13 years later. Iam not saying YES to that. Its up to Keanu & Alex to decide. Dont take it to personal to that question so it doesn’t start any drama. Iam saying it as a Positive opinion.

  12. Bring it on !!

  13. Remembered when the movies came out funny still have them on VHS but some things are meant to be left alone, But hey ill watch it cant say no to Johnny Utah.

  14. bill & ted’s excellent adventure was hilliarious and educational
    with all the historical facts both made up and real but ted’s
    secret crush on bill’s mother that looks convincingly like his
    big sister with a rockin soundtrack to boot including couple
    of medieval babes from history with fake english accents but pure class.

    bill & ted’s bogus journey lived upto it’s title it was
    both ridiculous and not realy necessarie to have the duo
    get assassinated by evil robotic clones from the future
    but it got worse with having them to pass through hell
    in abid to get to heaven in a bid to get another chance to live
    by creating more stupid robot clones to battle evil robot clones
    highly pointless but never was equaly good as the first but entertaining
    when drunk on a friday night.
