This week has brought the bodacious news that a third installment of the Bill and Ted movies—which began with 1989s Excellent Adventure and continued with 1991s Bogus Journey—may very well get made, with Dean Parisot whose resumé includes cult favorite Galaxy Quest attached to direct, and both stars Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves happy to reincarnate their eponymous hair-brained metalheads, Bill S. Preston, Esquire, and Ted “Theodore” Logan. Now, courtesy of Keanu, we have a rough idea of the plot, which sounds perfect:
One of the plot points is that these two people have been crushed by the responsibility of having to write the greatest song ever written and to change the world. And they havent done it. So everybody is kind of like: “Where is the song?” The guys have just drifted off into esoterica and lost their rock. And we go on this expedition, go into the future to find out if we wrote the song, and one future “us” refuses to tell us, and another future “us” blames us for their lives because we didnt write the song, so theyre living this terrible life. In one version were in jail; in another were at some kind of highway motel and they hate us.
