Been pining for that final chapter to the Bill & Ted story? 21 years after the Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, it appears that the rumored third film seems to be coming to fruition.
Though Alex Winter (Bill S. Preston, Esq.) claimed he read a completed script last spring, a recent interview with GQ, Keanu Reeves (Ted Theodore Logan) shed some more light on the film.
A script written by franchise creators Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson, Reeves said, would feature Bill and Ted having 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 what happens to Wyld Stallions?
“So everybody is kind of like: ‘Where is the song?’ The guys have just drifted off into esoterica and lost their rock.”
A major bummer for those in their world, but it spurs another time traveling adventure.
“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,” Reeves said. “In one version we’re in jail; in another we’re at some kind of highway motel and they hate us.”
Could be another wild ride for the guys who put San Dimas on the map.
