Bill & Ted 3: Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter are 'knee deep' in the threequel

While we haven’t heard many updates recently regarding the Excellent Adventure to get Bill & Ted 3 made, Alex Winter says the crew has been working daily to make this dream a reality.

“It’s looking good,” the Bill part of the legendary duo told Forbes. “This is Hollywood so I don’t believe it’s happening until it’s coming out on VOD, but we’re all working on the film everyday at the moment in terms of the pre-prep type work so it’s an active project. Hopefully we’ll be shooting it shortly.”

Winter confirmed that the team has a completed script by Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon (who wrote the first two films), a director, a studio, and the return of Keanu Reeves. “How the f–k would we make it if he wasn’t on board? People always ask if Keanu’s doing it and I’m like, ‘No, I’m making a Bill movie.’ Of course he’s in it. I can’t make a Bill & Ted movie without Keanu.”

All that’s left is nailing down a start date. “I can’t really go further than that other than to say some people are going to be returning from the original by the fact that they’re in it,” Winter said. “There will be new people because obviously, sadly, Rufus [George Carlin] isn’t around anymore and they will be interesting actors, too.”
