This is a Tweet, but I thought I should put it in the B&T forum for obvious reasons:

OCRadio Christian O'Connell
@Filmdrunk Vince, fan of the blig and pod. we have just interviewed Alex Winter and said there is a script him and Keanu like for 3rd film
47 minutes ago


There is a script that Ales and Keanu LIKE! Keanu said in an interview before that they'd do it if they liked the script. And they like this one. Be still, my heart! :-D

http://blogs.indiewire.com/theplaylist/alex-winter-discusses-his-1993-cult-hit-freaked-says-bill-ted-3-script-is-really-weird

Though it's been over twenty years since the last 'Bill & Ted' outing, that hasn't dulled the anticipation for another installment and both Reeves and Winter are asked constantly about a third film in their Excellent trilogy. Back in April, Keanu Reeves said they were six weeks away from a finished draft and that was a few months after he jokingly pitched Werner Herzog as the director, which Herzog later jokingly considered. The last update on the project was shortly afterward when Winter tweeted that he'd received a finished draft. When asked what the status of the sequel was, he was candid.
"I don't know. In all frankness, it's just a slow universe. It took us fifteen years to come up with an idea that we thought we'd want to do. We is just me and Keanu [Reeves] and Chris [Matheson] and Ed [Solomon, co-writers of the original 'Bill & Ted' films] and we're all really close friends. We talk about it from time to time and we see each other a lot anyway. It's always like, 'Is there anything there to do? Is there a 'there' there?' A couple years ago, we were having dinner and we came up with an idea which has evolved over the years that we thought was really great. And we spent another year developing it just the four of us. Then Chris and Ed spent another year writing it. And the script only got finished two months ago and it's really green. It's the beginning of what could be nothing, frankly," Winter candidly said. "There's hooplah because frickin' Reeves keeps blathering about it. Every time he's interviewed he talks about it and he's one of my closest friends and I love him dearly but I think he's got a very post-modern sense of humor. I think he's doing it partially just to fuck with people. Because if he says it, everyone goes crazy and I think he just goes 'Muah ha ha'. [But] we wrote a script, we like it, we don't really even have the rights. We kinda have the rights. There's a long road of crap we have to deal with before it ever, if it ever, becomes a movie. I can tell you that Chris and Ed are really great writers and the script is fantastic so it would be fun to do. I really don't care that much to be honest with you...but if it doesn't get made I'll post the script on the net. People will see what we did in some form. It's a really, really, really good script. They did a great job, it's funny as hell, and it's really weird. It's not like some lame-ass retro thing. It's fucking weird. It's really weird. But funny and hugely bankable if anyone is recording this."

He also shot down the rumors that Herzog would film the third installment. "Herzog said yes, not knowing anything about it. Jokingly. No one asked him officially" and again stressed it was really early and they were still figuring out how to go about doing it and who to get money from. Winter also said he would definitely not direct it.

...no, really, Alex? we didn't notice ... ;)

Yup, LOL too. So nice that Alex can define that sense of humor as "post-modern" I am unable/unwilling to define it at all. Damn that frickin Reeves...
Thanks for scoping that one out Luca.

Everything I have ever watched Keanu Reeves in has consisted of me thinking, “That’s Keanu Reeves" whenever he appears. Some actors have the ability to completely meld into their characters so the actors are indistinguishable. I’m thinking Denzel Washington in Malcolm X, Tom Hardy in Bronson, that sort of level. Among these heavyweights, I would add Keanu Reeves as Ted. No, stick with me.

He really was that good in this role. He peaked too soon – everything he did after that has been pretty much the same, bland expression of acting that has plagued his movies since. Go on, tell me the difference between Neo, Constantine, Johnny Mnemonic and Jack Traven.

Only as Ted Theodore Logan did Keanu ever come to life as a character on the big screen.

Go on, tell me the difference between Neo, Constantine, Johnny Mnemonic and Jack Traven.
... for the fish's sake, I hope that phrase is just rhetorical.

I wonder if he`s blind or just doesn`t want to see and finds it easier to keep repeating what he`s already heard somewhere.

second option, most likely.
and yes, it's 'cool' to type that instead of bothering to swim against the general consensus of certain online pastures.

then again, there is some truth in those lines. Keanu's 'post-Ted' acting was much more restrained; he never displayed that exuberance again. Guess he played Ted too damn well :\\

Well, I`m not the expert,but I don`t see his acting more restrained.I think his acting`s just in accordance with his later roles or characters.In my oppinion he`s been very adequate in general..Luca, do you think his acting in Devil`s Advocate was restrained for example or maybe in Speed since the guy mentioned that role?

No, it wasn't.
But it wasn't Ted, either.
Ted was larger than life. To this day, Keanu never played a similar character again.

of course, how could he?Ted`s epic, very unique, there`s no doubt.One can`t get such a role twice in the life.

Sheesh. These fish need to just pay attention. It doesn't hit you over the head, but it's there. But you have to want to see it.

"We just kicked ideas around [over the years] and eventually, we kicked one idea around that clicked," Winter said. "It felt timely. Funnily enough, it felt better because so much time had gone by. What would it be like to revisit those guys now? From a comedy standpoint, it felt kind of cool to revisit two galvanized comic characters a chunk of time later, [exploring] what you can do with that from a comedy perspective."

Though much time has passed between the last "Bill and Ted" and now, Winter admitted that it's "very possible" that Bill and Ted themselves, despite their age, haven't grown up with the times — though he would neither confirm nor deny their current maturity level. What he would say, however, is that the next "Bill and Ted" adventure would focus heavily on the rock and roll spirit that's always been present in the franchise.

"What's happened to rock and roll in the last 20 years? The movie's going to get in and play with some of that stuff," he said. "Where is rock? Where are we? What's happened to the whole idea of saving the world — or what hasn't happened? There's a lot to play with there."

There's so much to play with, in fact, that Winter and Reeves both slipped into character on more than one occasion while developing the new "Bill and Ted" script.

"Yes, we did. It's really sad how easy it was [to get back into character]," he laughed. "You go away and do all this other stuff and go, 'I'm not Bill, that's absurd!' ... And then me and Reeves got together, and suddenly we're the characters again. We didn't even mean to. We just started riffing on it. When we were doing notes and me and Reeves started riffing on the dialogue, it's just, oh my god. Yeah, it's in there. God knows."

"Bill and Ted 3," which has a title that Winter won't reveal just yet ("But it'll say it all," he promised), still has obstacles in the way. No, there are no Evil Us's to consider, but the script does not yet have a green-light. According to Winter, though, he's more than happy with the project as it stands, even if it never makes it to the big screen.

"It's something we think is a very fun thing. We had a lot of fun developing it, and the guys are amazing writers," Winter said of working with longtime "Bill and Ted" writers Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon. "We had a lot of fun with the script. We're happy with where it's at now. If it goes forward, great. If it doesn't, we're happy with what they wrote and what we came up with."

If it will focus heavily on rock and roll, maybe they can have an Alice Cooper cameo. ;-)
