There has been a lot talk about a third instalment of Bill & Ted over the years, with no real progress being made on the project and no real news to speak of for the past few months. However, Alex Winter has revealed how the script for Bill & Ted 3 has finally been completed and that they are hoping to take things from there.
Winter explained, “In all frankness it’s just a slow universe. It took us fifteen years to come up with an idea that we thought we’d want to do. The script only got finished two months ago and it’s really green. It’s the beginning of what could be nothing, frankly. There's hooplah because frickin' Reeves keeps blathering about it. Every time he's interviewed he talks about it and he's one of my closest friends and I love him dearly but I think he's got a very post-modern sense of humor. I think he's doing it partially just to f**k with people. Because if he says it, everyone goes crazy and I think he just goes 'Muah ha ha'."
He added, "But we wrote a script, we like it, we don't really even have the rights. We kinda have the rights. There's a long road of crap we have to deal with before it ever, if it ever, becomes a movie.” It had been suggested that Werner Herzog had agreed to direct the movie but Alex Winter claims that nobody is officially set to helm the project yet.
