'Bill & Ted' 3: Keanu Reeves wants it, and so do we
Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure is probably the best time traveling/heavy-metal rocking/Socrates-mispronouncing high school comedy ever made. Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey is definitely the best movie ever made about the Grim Reaper playing Battleship. Two decades have passed since those brave films made their way to the theaters. The world is different, but the same. Things are more moderner than before. Bigger, and yet smaller. The time has come… for Bill & Ted’s Heinous Odyssey. Or Bill & Ted’s Radical Pilgrimage. Or whatever you want to call it: a third Bill & Ted’s movie! So says Keanu Reeves, who told MTV that he’s talked to all the main people (co-star Alex Winter, writers Chris Matheson, and Ed Solomon) about making it happen. PopWatchers, this has to happen, but what should Bill & Ted’s 3 be about?
Reeves might just be joking, but his suggestion sounds incredible: a black-and-white 3-D anthology movie team-directed by Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola, and Werner Herzog? Yes, please! Check out Reeves’ Herzog impression after the jump:
The first movie was firmly science-fiction, tripping backwards and forwards through time. The second movie was more of a mock-horror movie, with the titular duo as ghosts fighting their way through a terrifying vision of Hell. I’m tempted to say that the third movie could veer more in the direction of fantasy, with Bill and Ted meeting strange Tolkien-esque creatures on a reality-hopping Wild Stallyns tour. Herzog would direct that, right?
PopWatchers, what do you want to see in a third Bill & Ted’s movie? And doesn’t Keanu Reeves look happy in that video, or what? No more Sad Keanu!
