Bill & Ted, again?

04.02.2008
For quite a while, Keanu Reeves expressed interest in reuniting with his time-tripping accomplice Alex Winter to catch up with the Wyld Stallyns some two decades after their last bogus journey.

Alas, strange things are afoot. Instead of a third BILL & TED'S mondo expedition, it sounds like all we'll get is a refried variation of the first flick with new young actors portraying the inadvertently heroic California doofuses.

According to Moviehole, the restart will again revolve around a pair of dim high schoolers who use a "funky" new phone to jaunt back in time and learn about the famous folks (such as Gandhi and Calamity Jane) they skipped in class. And their band is now called... Atomic Gorillas. Heinous.

The assumption is that this updated version from MGM will slide right into DVD players (along with quite a few other remakes and sequels of their catalog), although that may depend on the quality of cast it attracts. Whoa?
Extra Tidbit: What number am I thinking of?

Bogus...

... I would support a sequel with Reeves & Winter, but a remake/imagining I will never see. Ever. Fuck them if they try. Boycott.

What's next, a Back To The Future remake? Fucking stupid.

When I see new stupid ideas for remakes I always think it cant get any worse... but dammit it does.. why I mean why? There's no reason this should be remade... not even monetary. this is the sort of things that worked in late 80s early 90s

This is definitely... shocking..... bleh...

Bill and Ted are the kind of duo who shouldn't have ever been as charming or iconic as they are. I loved those movies, especially the first, but it's the kind of thing that isn't driven by formula, but by chemistry. I might've had a little respect for this if I honestly thought they could get George Carlin back, but that's less likely than a Winters/Reeves teaming in my mind. This sounds more like "Dumb and Dumberer," and we all know how well that one was received.

But seriously, this sounds like such a bogus idea. Kind of like when Bill and Ted where sentensed to the Iron Maiden.

No No No!

I agree with other people, Bill & Ted 3 should happen, but it should NOT be a remake.

THAT SUCKS ASS

they should get keaneu reeves and alex winter, or not do it at all. The Excellent Adventure of said Bill and Ted was truly excellent, and will always have a place in my heart.. lets hope their names are not soiled.

Damn it!

Not another! How lame, Hollywood! But I'm glad to see no Green Borders on the comments so far. Now if only we sane few can convince the Great Unwashed (as I like to call the public when I'm feeling superior) not to go pay money for this, maybe we can send a message to Hollywood and do some good.

No, we're outnumbered, plain and simple.

Whoa, has it really been almost 20 years since the original? Bogus. Dude, I feel most old.

And are people really more upset over re-casting Bill and Ted than they are over Matthew McConaughey being cast as Magnum P.I.?

Because hardly anyone's commented on that bit of casting news.

Totally non-triumphant! There is no-one, and I mean NO-ONE, in Hollywood that can say "whoa" like Keanu Reeves!

Well......

I'm still waiting for them to announce a Jaws remake, a Cheech and Chong remake and a reboot of the original Star Wars Trilogy. Hell they remade Pink Panther! I waiting for those so I can offically say fuck Hollywood, go remake yourself!

Leave it alone!

Considering they tried to remake 'Adventures in Babysitting' with Raven Simone and 'Back to School' with Cedric the Entertainer (neither, as far as I know, came to fruition) I cringe to imagine who they have in mind to replace Winter and Reeves.

Winters has kept busy with directing (Freaked, Fever) and acting (Saul of the Molemen), Reeves pledged he'd never do another sequel again. I'd sooner say leave the franchise alone entirely, rather than restart it.

How about remaking some genuine

How about remaking some genuine schlock like 'Robot Jox' instead?

Alex Winter Can Use the Work

Anyone see the disaster that was Ben 10: The Movie on Cartoon Network? That was directed by non other than Bill S. Preston himself. Bill & Ted 3: GOOD IDEA. Bill & Ted Redux: KILL ME NOW.

Oh no...

This has "Dumb and Dumberer" written all over it.

Dear God, don't do it =(

Only with Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves would I accept a sequel, remake, or prequel. Without them...it's not the same, and it will be a fassive mailure.

Totally Heinous!

What a god awful idea. I normally don't care too much about remakes, I can ignore classic horror film reboots for the most part. But these films completely revolve around Keanu and Alex Winter's chemistry together, you can never redo that.

what are they going to have a magical cell phone with bluetooth headsets? Are they going to be whiny emo-goth hot topic kids? This is just a bad bad bad bad bad bad idea. Did MGM forget Dumber and Dumberer?

One word: Totally bogus.

69, Dude!!!

I generally don't get too worked up about stuff like this...but I can't think of a way this won't be terrible. The whole appeal of Bill & Ted is Winters and Keanu. If this happens, I will never watch it. Ever.

The first one is a classic. I'd rather see a sequel with the original guys - even George Carlin could make an appearance. Better get on it while he's still around!
