The rumors of a third Bill & Ted have been mumbled for a few years but finally it seems like things are moving forward with a bit more alacrity. The script is finished and they’ve found themselves a director, Dean Parisot. Keanu Reeves recently expounded on what to expect:
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.
If they really want it be a huge hit, they should just turn Ted into a talking teddy bear. [guitar riff]
