In a preemptive move on my part, today we have the news that Keeanu Reeves seems to not be completely messing with us with this news of a third Bill and Ted movie happening.
While promoting his newest movie, Henry’s Crime, Reeves let slip to MTV News that he thinks the apparent writers of the apparent movie are “six weeks away from a draft.” Then in typical Reeves fashion, he continued on by not really saying much of anything at all.
“I know a little bit. But I don’t know — the fellas went off and cooked it up,” he teased [Those fellas, always teasing –Ed.]. “I don’t know what happened when they put the elements together.” [via MTV News]
So there you have it, we may be six weeks away from a draft of a sequel to sequel neither of which were all that good – the second being atrocious, actually. But this really begs the question: who is asking for this? Is there some devoted 30-something fanbase of the Bill and Ted movies out there that I am not aware of? It’s not like Reeves needs the money, and Alex Winter… Okay, Alex Winter may need the money, but still.
I suppose I’ll keep you updated as this story progresses, but until then I set my interest level in this one to *dismissive wank*
