Is A New ‘Bill & Ted’ Sequel In The Works?

Keanu Reeves reveals that a new film may be on the way

Ready for some pretty amazing news 90′s movie fans? According to Keanu Reeves himself, there is talk of making a sequel to the early 90′s films Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure and Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey! It looks like very soon we’ll be treated with another outing from Bill & Ted on the big screen:

Keanu Reeves has said that he is working with the original Bill & Ted team in the hope of making another film in the time-travelling comedy series. Reeves’s Bill & Ted co-star Alex Winter recently revealed that discussions were under way for a third movie, after Reeves himself had admitted that he was “trying” to bring the duo back to the big screen. Now, the 46-year-old has told MTV News that Winter and himself are in dialogue with writers Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon over the possible project. Reeves said: “We’re trying. Alex and I are still friends and we’re talking, and we’re talking to Chris and Ed. They’re going to try and see if they can write something. To me, I’d love to play the role. I’d love to work with Alex and Chris and Ed again. We’ll see what they do. I’m meeting people now – they’ve shown the film to their kids. We just seek to entertain.” The Matrix actor added that they would only work on the picture “if it’s a film that can stand up on its own”, before joking that he wanted German art house director Werner Herzog to take charge of the movie. Impersonating Herzog, Reeves said: “I was just pushed by the idea of this innocence being confronted by the nihilism of the world. And I thought that these two clowns could push our perspective of reality and truth to the forefront of meaning and knowledge.” The Bill & Ted movies tell the story of two Californian teenagers who travel through time in a phone booth after finding out that their rock band Wyld Stallyns is the key to the future happiness of the world.

OMG … I would seriously DIE if a new Bill & Ted movie gets made. I remember seeing the first two Bill & Ted movies when they came out originally (they were among the first films that I got to see with friends when we first started to drive) and I would absolutely love to see a new film. Will this new film show that Bill & Ted finally grew up? Or will Bill & Ted still be trying to find fame and fortune with their band Wyld Stallions? I, for one, am really anxious to see where Bill & Ted‘s time-traveling phone booth adventures will take them next … hopefully, away from having to travel by obsolete phone booth. This has to be the best news ever … I really hope that a new film will be made. Any Bill & Ted fans out there … this is great news, ain’t it?

    Lol…so into this…and if i had any say in the casting, I’d defo get James Franco to sign on…I think he’d fit in really well in this type of movie.

    The lack of George Carlin as Rufus will make me more than a little sad. :-(

    Small Fact: In the first movie when they go to the water park, which is really called Golfland/sunsplash in Mesa Arizona my sisters best friend is seen standing right behind them. Her name is Shannon and if you watch it again she is wearing a one piece black suit and has long curly brown hair!! Pretty fun..that waterpark is still around and really fun!! I would love another installment if it was done right!

    I don’t know how I feel about this . . . My first reaction was “OMG OMG OMG OMG!” I just watched Excellent on Saturday night! These are probably my top 2 favorite movies of all time. . . and that’s what makes me nervous – I wouldn’t want anything to ruin that for me. It would have to be done right; exactly like Mr. Gyllenhaal said, but how can it be done right without Rufus? I’m curious, it IS exciting! Bill & Ted news is good news.

    Hmmm….. if they remake this, they better do a good job because the originals were so frickin’ awesom! And only if Keanu Reeves is in it =P

    Trent! This is amazing news!!!
    I was an extra in Bogus Journey and met one of my still-to-this-day best friends. United in our love for Keanu! X) LOL

    Oh no! They cannot replace the phone booth. That would be like changing the TARDIS! It is meant to stay just as it is! I will be sad if they aren’t traveling by phone booth anymore.
