Keanu Reeves Is Making ‘Bill & Ted 3’!!

Keanu Reeves recently told MTV that a third installment to the excellent Bill and Ted series is in the works and he and original co-star, Alex Winter are working with the original screenwriters Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon to write the screenplay.

A lot of people write off the Bill and Ted’s movies as cornball teen flapdoodle for lowest common denominator stoners; but both movies (beside pioneering use of colloquialism “totally”) are actually very clever buddy films that had iconic historical figures delivering lines like “hello my excellent friends”, and the main characters Bill (Alex Winter) and Ted (Keanu Reeves) served as a precursor to ubiquitous Wayne’s World duo, Wayne and Garth. The Bill and Ted movies’ cult following is testament to characters that have stood the test of time – or at least evidence that their charming slacker vibes continue to endear audiences 20 years down the track.

Watch Keanu’s recent interview with MTV where he talks about the pending sequel and you’ll see that “that is why we NEED Eddie Van Halen.”
