‘Bill & Ted 3′ Script Done, Said to be Excellent

Bill Ted 3 Script Excellent Bill & Ted 3 Script Done, Said to be Excellent

Sorry about that title…couldn’t resist.

In April 2011 we got two big pieces of Bill & Ted 3 news from the respective stars who play the titular characters: First Keanu Reeves (Ted) said a script was in the works; a few weeks later, Alex Winter (Bill) said that the first draft was done, and that it was good.  Since then, we’ve heard very little on the project…until now.

Read on for what both Bill (Winter) & Ted (Reeves) are saying now about how Bill & Ted 3 is shaping up.

The following quote from Keanu Reeves was pulled from The Independent:

“Yeah, we have a script. We’re trying to put it together. It’s a good script too.”

Don’t you mean an excellent script, Keanu? (Bad joke, sorry.)

Alex Winter followed that up by once again taking to his Twitter account to drop some B&T3 news:

Script done? Check. -We love it? Check. -Green light? Working on it!

With both of the headlining stars set to return, it’s hard to imagine that the threequel will have a hard time getting a greenlight. If the Web chatter is anything to judge by (which it is about 50% of the time), there is definite demographic of 25 – 40 types who loved the first film (people tend to be split on the sequel) and would love to see older versions of Bill and Ted on the big screen again. And, if the script by Chris Matheson & Ed Solomon (who wrote both of the previous films) is truly worthy enough for both Reeves and Winter to praise it, this could potentially turn out to be one of those long-delayed sequels that was actually worth the wait.

We’ll keep you updated on the status of Bill & Ted 3 as news develops.

  1. I just got a full on robot chubby!

  2. “Strange things are afoot at the Circle K.”

  3. So if this is set in present time, Bill & Ted should be in full-on Wyld Stallions success, right? Or is it going to be like they are struggling musicians who’s music isn’t appreciated until they’re long dead?

    cant wait

  5. So my only real beef with this is who will play Rufus? George Carlin is King and will be hard, nay impossible to replace. As far as story goes, I heard a rumor that it’ll be set in the future they visit in the other movies. To be honest, I’m glad to see Reaves doing something he’s good at – in my opinion the only role he’s good at. For some reason everytime I see him all in any movie all I can think is, “Like, I am Ted! And this is my most excellent friend Bill!”

  6. I’ve been a fan of the Bill & Ted franchise since I was 10 I saw the first film in 1996 in my opinion it was a most excellent adventure comedy to watch. The rumors I heard about a third installment being added to the series is coming true, it’s about time for the hilarious duo to return to the big screen.

    Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure came to theatres in 1989 followed by a triumphant sequel two years later. It should be interesting to see how their lives have been since winning the battle of the bands at the end of Bogus Journey, my one concern is who would they get to portray Rufus?. George Carlin passed away almost four years ago in June of 2008, the film might not be the same without him but it will be fantastic.


    I know it’s not going to be the same as the first two, and I’m okay with that.
    Everyone seems enthused (Even William Sadler wants to return as Death!), and that’s what counts in my book. I’d always heard that Reeves was very ‘that was then, this is now’ and had no interest in doing another, and this back when they might have made a more straight up sequel. NOW he wants to do the 3rd?? I don’t believe he’d do it unless he really enjoyed the script.

    So MGM…. what’s up with that green light buddy?

  8. This calls for some air guitar!
