The real question is, will it make it into theaters before ‘Ghostbusters 3′? While promoting his latest feature ’47 Ronin’, Keanu Reeves who played Ted “Theodore” Logan in the classic goofball time-traveling epic, ‘Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure’, stated that a script had been completed, but that it needed serious editing because as he put it “It needs to be adapted because right now, it would cost $400 million to make.”
In the first movie, ‘Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure’ two (implied) stoners– the other being Bill S. Preston Esquire, as portrayed by Alex Winter— found themselves flung through time, essentially collecting historical figures like Napoleon, Joan of Arc and perhaps most memorably, Abraham Lincoln in order to complete a homework assignment in order to graduate high school.
The second movie, ‘Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey’ found the duo impersonated by evil robotic versions of themselves from the future, while the real Bill & Ted are sent to hell. (The original title of the movie was ‘Bill & Ted Go To Hell’.) The pair must compete with Death in order to return to the land of the living.
As for the long-in-development third movie, were it to come out next year (which it won’t) would arrive a scant 23 years after the previous installment. As for the bloated, cost-prohibitive movie’s plot, Reeves spills that “There’s a rift in the universe and there’s all sorts of creatures.” Yeah, that might cost a penny or two. And I think we can all agree that this won’t be making ‘Avengers’ bank. Considering that the first movie is the one most people prefer and the fact that it looks like it was made for the money from your loose change jar and some coupons, maybe they should lower their sights. I don’t think anyone expects this to be a huge sweeping sci-fi epic.
What do you think? Are you interested to see Bill & Ted 23+ years older, saving the universe? (I just realized, they had kids at the end of that second movie… that would mean they’d have adult kids in the new movie!)
