Back in April, we received an update on the status of a third Bill & Ted movie. Keanu Reeves (who played Ted “Theodore Logan) said he and Alex Winter (Bill S. Preston, Esq.) were expecting a draft of the script in about six weeks. Today, it looks as though the Wyld Stallyns have a finished script. While speaking to The Independent about his new documentary Side by Side, Reeves was asked about how the project was coming along. “Yeah, we have a script. We’re trying to put it together. It’s a good script too.” Winter confirmed the progress of the script by tweeting “Script done? Check. -We love it? Check. -Green light? Working on it!”
Hit the jump for more.
In April, Reeves told MTV:
“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. 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.”
But it’s been nine months since that idea, and it’s possible that it could have changed dramatically. I don’t think anyone wants to see Bill and Ted as two sad old guys, but hopefully Bill & Ted 3 will still have the madcap energy of the first two movies, and the twisted lunacy of Bogus Journey.
The Bill & Ted saga has continued past the movies with a 1990 animated series and a short-lived live-action series in 1992, which featured none of the original cast members.
