Yes, it's one of those stupid films from the '90s, but dammit, we absolutely loved Bill & Ted.
It was dumb, it was loud, it had Keanu Reeves pre-Matrix and it had a soundtrack that featured Kiss AND Megadeth. Really, that's all you can hope for in a film. The third entry in the Bill & Ted franchise has been a long time coming, initially mooted back in 2010.
Now that the 25th anniversary is closing in on Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey, it looks like there's finally some movement on the whole thing. That's according to a recent interview with Alex Winter, who played Bill S. Preston, Esq. in the previous two films.
"We’ve been working on it for, like, six years. We’re knee deep in the script, it’s been written by Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon who wrote the first two, they are fantastic writers, and the script is great. We have a script, we have a director, we have a studio – we’re just trying to nail down a start date."
The reason, no doubt, for the issue with the start date is because Keanu Reeves is still working on the follow-up to John Wick, the imaginatively titled John Wick: Chapter Two. Winter went on, saying that, "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."
Trivia time! The guy who played Death in Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey was Col. Stuart in Die Hard 2 and the sheriff from Roswell.
