Alex Winter gives us a status update on the third Bill and Ted movie

Mar. 8, 2013by: Alex Maidy

You would think in a movie industry besotted with sequels and remakes that it would not be this hard to make a GHOSTBUSTERS 3 or a third BILL AND TED movie, but here we are over two decades removed from BILL AND TED'S BOGUS JOURNEY. We have been promised multiple times in the last few years that progress has been made on the next adventure for Bill S. Preston, Esq. and Ted Theodore Logan. For a while, even Keanu Reeves himself seemed confident the movie was coming soon. But, now co-star Alex Winter has publicly stated where the project is. Brace yourselves.

Well the funny thing is there really isnt a hold up. Nothing held it up other than it got leaked really early in the process, so these things take a shitload of time to get bobbed around and we are really just in the process. Its really mundane to report the day-to-day process of trying to get a movie made. 'Right now theyre doing a rewrite?' You know? Thats my news, they are doing a rewrite.
That will take a while and then we will look at it and that might need another rewrite and that will be my next bit of news. So its just like The short answer is it got leaked way too early. It got leaked just as we started, me and Keanu and Chris and Ed, the two writers just started to put it together. Then youve got the whole genesis of putting it together in front of you still, which is where we are at now.

Damn rewrites! That is the same excuse for the stalled GHOSTBUSTERS movie, too! I think rewrites is studio speak for never gonna happen. Winter has been working as a director of documentaries, commercials, and music videos for the last fifteen years while Keanu has wavered from A-list actor to obscure star of 47 RONIN. Between these two guys, I cannot fathom why they cannot get this movie financed independently and just direct it themselves. Or, even go through Kickstarter. I can imagine thousands of fans of the series who would kick in some dough to get it made.

So, for now, enjoy the two movies we do have because this is not sounding promising.

Extra Tidbit: I prefer BOGUS JOURNEY significantly over EXCELLENT ADVENTURE.

Kickstarter

FUCK Kickstarter. I am a huge fan of the first two films and no way in hell would I donate to a third one. I pay for the damn films in the theatre, as well as parking, popcorn, soda, and on and on. I'm not going to start funding the production costs too, sorry.

Due Respect, but it sounds like you have no idea how the movie industry works! They arent trying to pump out a Paranormal Activity movie or some shitty Parody movie... they are trying to put out a quality 3rd movie in a franchise many people hold dear. Movies have rewrites, and then the rewrites have rewrites, sometimes movies can have near 50 drafts! I for one am glad that they are doing rewrites and shit because that means that the script that is finally greenlit and made will be the best

Plus Bill & Ted's is a property owned by a studio, the same way Disney owns Marvel, some company owns the Bill & Ted universe, so they cant go out and shoot this independently, because someone out there owns that entire world. Unless you wanted a 1st draft movie made of Bob & Tim's Splendiforous Voyage!

Bob & Tim's Splendiforous Voyage sounds like it would be the Asylum version.

Carlin

Bringing George Carlin back for number three would be quite the feat.

I'm willing to wait on Bill & Ted III, if that's what it takes to get it right.

belee dat

Aside from the WALKING DEAD version of it, I don't see how Carlin could come back... From being dead since 2008 !!

Well with as much love Keanu got recently, this movie has to happen. I think it needs to be done in the right way without ruining the spirit of the 1st two. I still say either Alex or Keanu could direct the damn thing. It seems they both respect the material & the fans, they kow & understand how much people love the movies. Damn I'm feel nostalgic all the sudden, I need to watch them again.

Don't forget

Men and Black iii was delayed for ten years as a result of rewrites and it turned out fine.

MIB3 really surprised me on how good it was, it was funny & the ending came out of nowhere.

Well if anyone is jonesing for more Bill & Ted

Why not get hold the first season of the cartoon they made back in the eighties. A sequel of sorts to Excellent Adventure, starring Reeves, Winter and even Carlin. Fun stuff.
