Keanu Reeves recently brought up that ‘Bill and Ted Face the Music‘ might be having some financial problems on getting off the ground but Alex Winter has spoken up to ease these fears. Winter shared the positive update at this year’s Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour at a panel for ‘Eli Roth’s History of Horror’ which he was a part of.
In the Q&A with reporters after the panel, Winters was asked about Reeves comments on the third ‘Bill and Ted’ movie. Winter shared that:
“We’re still in pre-production. It’s still the same. Early 2019 is still the same. I’m still being told to hold those dates. That’s all I know.”
He also went on to clarify how he and Reeves react to the production of films:
“What I keep telling everyone is I don’t trust a movie as being made, frankly, until I’m watching it on cable two years after it’s done. Not even while we’re shooting it. To be fair to Reeves, his point is just anything can go wrong at any point. We made the first movie, and it was shelved for a year and a half. We were like it’s done, never going to come out, no one’s ever going to see it. It’s a pain in the ass. It’s not ever not a pain in the ass. Nothing has changed in a radical way. If it is, that’ll be news.”
So, it sounds like there is progress being made and the hiccup that they’ve encountered isn’t one that will cancel the film outright, but anything is possible until it is being distributed.
Has Alex Winter eased any concern which you might have over the production of ‘Bill and Ted Face the Music’? Do you think that we’ll ever see the third installment in this franchise? Share your thoughts below!
