13-year-old me is stoked right now. Talking with MTV, Keanu Reeves implied that a third installment of the “Bill & Ted” franchise isn’t entirely out of the question. Reeves also hinted that Alex Winter (Bill to Reeves’ Ted), and screenwriters Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon might also be interested in embarking on another excellent adventure or bogus journey.
“We’re trying,” said Reeves. “Alex and I are still friends and we’re talking, and we’re talking to Chris and Ed. They’re going to try and see if they can write something. To me, I’d love to play the role. I’d love to work with Alex and Chris and Ed again.”
“We’ll see what they do. If it’s a film that can stand up on its own, and I’m meeting people now, they’ve shown the film to their kids,” he added. “We just seek to entertain, and if that could be something that could be worthwhile on its own…”
Reeves goes on to suggest the film should be made by Werner Herzog, and does his best impression of the cantankerous German director.
This can obviously be filed under the shit-that-will-never-really-happen banner, but the idea of “30 Short Films About Bill & Ted” is an idea that I will not soon forget. A guy can dream, can’t he? And the 25th anniversary is just around the corner. Stranger things have happened.
