Keanu Reeves Says 'Bill And Ted 3' Script Is Weeks Away, Plot Spins Out Of 'Bogus Journey' Ending
by Josh Wigler
God gave rock and roll to you, and he's giving you a brand new "Bill and Ted" sequel as well.
Keanu Reeves spilled the beans on a third "Bill and Ted" outing when we caught up with him at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival, and his co-star Alex Winter weighed in with a few additional details shortly thereafter. Since then, not a peep — until now!
"I believe the writers are six weeks away from a draft," Reeves told MTV News during an interview today to promote "Henry's Crime," his upcoming movie co-starring Vera Farmiga. "No pressure, guys!"
That's not all—in addition to a forthcoming first draft, Reeves offered some details about the threequel's plot.
"I know a little bit. But I don't know — the fellas went off and cooked it up," he teased. "I don't know what happened when they put the elements together."
Then Reeves opened up considerably, revealing that the plot ties directly into the ending of "Bogus Journey," when Bill and Ted's Wyld Stallyns became the best band in the universe.
"When we last got together, part of it was that Bill and Ted were supposed to have written the song that saved the world, and it hasn't happened," he said. "So they've now become kind of possessed by trying to do that. Then there's an element of time and they have to go back."
