If you haven't heard already, Bill and Ted 3 is happening, and it was announced last week that Galaxy Quest director Dean Parisot would be bringing it to the big screen. In a recent interview with GQ, Keanu Reeves offered up a few more details on the story that we'll see in the film, and it sounds like classic Bill and Ted!
The second half of what he says is the new information...
One of the plot points is that these two people have been crushed by the responsibility of having to write the greatest song ever written and to change the world, and they haven't done it. So everybody is kind of like: 'Where is the song?'
The guys have just drifted off into esoterica and lost their rock. And we go on this expedition, go into the future to find out if we wrote the song, and one future 'us' refuses to tell us, and another future 'us' blames us for their lives because we didn't write the song, so they're living this terrible life. In one version we're in jail; in another we're at some kind of highway motel and they hate us.
I grew up watching these Bill and Ted movies, so I'm looking forward to seeing Ted Theodore Logan and Bill S. Preston, Esq. back in another crazy time traveling adventure! I can't get over the fact that that Reeves and Alex Winter will be back top reprise their roles, that's just so cool. It's still hard for me to believe this movie is actually happening.
The first film was Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, which came out in 1989. Then in 1991 it got a sequel called Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey. Both movies are worth watching if you haven't seen them yet, and I think they are equally entertaining.
